​Our Restaurant

TANTO specializes in Japanese "Izakaya" dining experience. In September 2000, the first TANTO Japanese Restaurant was opened on Saratoga Ave. Now we are located in Sunnyvale and has been a local favorite for over 20 years. Many people have often asked us what the meaning of  TANTO is. The word "TANTO" can be meant "much", "often", and "a lot of" in English. TANTO was named with the wish of a being a place where people can eat a lot of delicious food and laugh a lot and feel happy. "TANTO" is originally from the name of the restaurant that our owner chef's brother used to run in Japan. The name and thoughts have been passed down for generations.


COVID-19 Update

While we comply with various federal, state and local mandates due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, TANTO Japanese Restaurant will operate only as a Pickup and Delivery service. In these challenging times, nothing is ore important to us than the health and safety of our customers and our family of employees. We continue to emphasize the importance of excellent hand washing practices, to strictly require employees who don't feel well to stay home from work, and to frequently disinfect commonly touched surface in all areas of our restaurants. We provide hand sanitizer for customers, and disinfected pens. Face covering is mandatory when entering our store.
