no reason to leave feedback for Tan PoPo, they never listened before, why would they start now. Enough to say food was greasy, tasteless, weird sauces. Crab claws with no crab but that had crab shell in it. Tiniest pieces of sashimi I have ever seen. Tiniest beef short ribs ever, one as small as 1 inch by 1 inch. And food was very slow to come out even tho it was only 5pm and not busy. Never, ever going back which is sad - years ago I went to Tan PoPo a couple times per week.

I left very disappointed - after having asked 3 different servers it took 45mins to an hour to get a single small dish that was missed in our second (all u can eat) order. The food has always just been mediocre, but the service was decent, until last night.

It took 10 mins to get seated even with reservation. We sat down; we ordered. Food was okay. Their chicken karage were tiny little nuggets. Their mango pudding had a dull tan color - tasted terrible. When it came time to pay, we had a Groupon and you're supposed to tax on the discounted amount. They already taxed us on the original amount. So we gave tip as the difference in what we were going to pay and what they charged us extra for. Then the waitresses read our receipt was like "Um... you know this include tip right?" And she stood there until we gave her more. I was appalled that the waitress asked for more tips. Terrible terrible attitude from the waitress.

We were there on Friday night and to say the least weren't impressed with the staff. Most of the sushi rolls were mainly filled with rice which made them really dry. We had to ask for ginger in order to get some. To top it up, the bill we got belonged to a different table We have one more Groupon to Tanpopo but I don’t think we’ll be using it. I’ll rather loose $15 than to dine there again...
