There are quite a few sushi places in Geneva but not all of them are worth a visit. The sushi restaurants are mostly quite expensive and the take-outs often have ready-made menus where you don’t know how long they have been waiting for you on the counter. Not Tanuki! Tanuki is one of my favorite sushi places in Geneva.
The sushi are fresh and usually produced (mind-bogglingly fast) in front of your eyes and prices are more than fair. Sometimes during “rush-hour” there are also menus to grab and go but they never stay there for more than a few minutes and the counter is only refilled when they are all gone…
Tanuki is a take-out only but you can eat the sushi at Café-Librairie Livresse just next-door (check out my article) if you order a drink there. If the weather alows it, it’s also nice to eat outside on the redesigned Plaine de Plainpalais (since last year there are benches, trees and don’t forget the skatepark…). The best way to get restaurant quality (or better!) sushi at a take-out price and not have to eat on the street.
Ask for extra Soy Sauce and Wasabi if your not a very economical consumer of these, you’ll get more for free…
