Tadashi is at the helm of Chef Sun Il, a native Korean who grew up fishing in the Sea of Japan. Now living in Austin, Sun is flying in fish and delicacies from Japanese fish markets namely the Tsukiji Market, the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world. The results are beautiful and delicious Japanese fusion dishes such as Tuna with Goat Cheese (pictured below), Wild Game Gyoza, Baby Tako with Chile Mango Salsa, and live fish. Yes, live fish. Live scallops and clams are sliced and prepared in a manner that compliments their fresh taste.

Tadashi, meaning “the right way,” boasts an extensive and authentic Japanese menu that is unlike anything else in the Texas Hill Country. Located in the Hill Country Galleria, Tadashi features traditional Japanese sushi and delicacies with a contemporary twist.
