Authentic Japanese Cuisine

 
Satisfy your appetite for good food with authentic Japanese cuisine from Tanpopo Japanese Restaurant in Palm Desert, California. Our family-friendly restaurant is ready to serve you and your family a delicious meal.
 

What Is Sushi

Sushi is much more than just raw fish. Rice, vegetables, seaweed, and many more cooked items go into making it. In addition to traditional sushi we bake, grill, and saute seafood and vegetables.

Our sushi bar is the finest Japanese style in the desert.
