Tanaka of Tokyo East Restaurant Review

: Locals come here for the complete teppanyaki experience. The pricing is a big draw, which starts at $21.75 for a meal including everything from pickles to dessert. Another attraction is the food, which is prepared with quality ingredients and the teppan chefs' awe-inspiring and entertaining knife skills. Appetizers include beef tataki served atop onions with ponzu sauce. Entrées range from filet mignon, lobster, scallops and blackened ahi to grilled chicken teriyaki and a tofu steak with teppanyaki vegetables. Complement your dinner with saké or a selection from the varied wine list, and finish with ice cream or sherbet. Regardless of what you order, a meal at Tanaka of Tokyo will leave you well-fed, happy and exhilarated --- what more could you ask for?
