Nestled in a small plaza on route 18, just north of Forge Pond, Tatami is a cozy Japanese restaurant brimming with tempting aromas and tasty creations. Recognizing a need for Japanese cuisine on the South Shore, Zhi and his wife Deng opened Tatami Restaurant and Sushi Bar in 2014. Their creative dishes and consistent quality have gained them quite a following.
From sushi to tempura to chicken wings, Tatami has something for everyone. They offer amazing lunch specials that include miso soup and salad. The maki rolls are well-prepared and offer dozens of complex combinations in a variety of raw, cooked and vegetable choices. They also have non-sushi classics like sesame chicken, fried rice, and crab rangoon.
In fact, crab rangoon wasn’t on the original menu, but customers requested them so often that Zhi contacted his uncle (owner of a Chinese food restaurant on the North Shore) for a recipe. After some adjustments, crab rangoon was added to the menu and has become a customer favorite.
