If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature's logic with this Groupon.

$10 for $20 Worth of Sushi and Japanese Cuisine

The menu spans the spectrum of traditional Japanese cuisine such as katsudon ($7.50), baja rolls with spicy tuna, cilantro, and avocado ($9.25), ginger pork ($10.25), or sake don salmon over sushi rice ($10.50).

Rocking Tanuki

Named for a Japanese raccoon-dog celebrated in myth for its roguish trickster image, Rocking Tanuki serves feasts of ocean-fresh nigiri and maki, tender katsu cutlets, and umami noodle soups and rice dishes. At the open sushi bar, chefs create inventive rolls such as an albacore and serrano-pepper Pancho Villa or a deep-fried California roll. Diners delicately munch on morsels of tuna and smoked salmon nigiri or show off chopstick skills as they pick up the pieces of tempura, chicken, and beef intermixed with udon and ramen. Deep crimson wallpaper, fluttering paper scrolls, and warm light from glowing paper lanterns unite to create a relaxing ambiance.


Delicious and fresh sushi! Consistently great!

The food is very good... we had hand rolls, Udon, tempura and some clever specialty rolls.

    “My husband & I were a bit wary after reading the reviews on Yelp, but we had a great experience! The food was all fresh and yummy (I'll admit that we know little about Japanese food, just that the food tasted good), and the waitress was attentive, even though she was the only server for the whole restaurant, of which 7 of the tables were filled - it would be nice if they had an additional server so that she'd have time to answer our newbie questions & not have to jet off after taking our order! My favorite was the sunomone salad and the Spider roll - I have never had so many delicious flavors in one meal!”
