Heard about this place on another board somewhere. Tani's is a small mom-and-pop Japanese restaurant in Westlake Village in Daly City. It's located along the first left you take from John Daly toward the Safeway/Trader Joe's.
Tani's is run by a Japanese couple, and it feels like these mom-and-pop places in Japan. The karaage and tonkatsu are excellent - the chef gives them a good fry and they come out nice and clean. Tekka-don and chirashi-zushi are also well done - the chef seems to season his rice for sushi more like they do in Japan.
Also, it is cheap - much more reasonable than places in the City.
We head to the Joe's there on the weekend for food shopping often, and Tani's is becoming a regular stop. They even have some Japanese magazines there as well.
We drove by it about 50 times so it is easy to miss. I've never been to dinner, but it seems to get crowded.
