If you see the exterior boarded up at the downtown Tuta’s Teriyaki, do not be alarmed. The restaurant is still open. Somebody decided to shatter their windows and vandalize the locally owned business. With all the shortages going on in the world, it may take some time to fix the windows, so the owners needed a temporary solution so they could get back up and running soon.
Please note, this review is for the downtown location on Broadway. There is another location out west as well.

For the first part of lunch, I had a half order of steamed rice and teriyaki chicken. If you’re a fan of portion sizes, you’ll love it here. Even a half order did wonders for my appetite. As usual, the chicken was tender and extremely flavorful, with nice thin cut slices spread out over the bed of rice. Big props to the rice as it was very fluffy.
I also had a bowl of pho. I figured with fall coming soon, why not get my body ready for the liters and liters of pho broth it’s about to endure. While the chicken teriyaki is the star of the show, the pho was more of a benchwarmer on the team. The broth wasn’t as rich as many of the pho competitors on Broadway. While it was a satisfying bowl, there was certainly better to be had nearby. But don’t let that deter you from giving it a try for yourself.
I hate it when bad things happen to locally owned businesses; things beyond their control. The owners have been running Tuta’s for quite a while and have always been kind and appreciative people. They deserve better than to have their business vandalized.
If you’re all about paying it forward, go give them some support, tip well and show them some love.
Here’s the menu:
