Excellent Tempura

I wanted to try a tempura specialized restaurant whilst in Japan, and I was recommended another place, that was booked for all my availabilities. Second on the list was this one. The food was very good and I was the only non Japanese customer at the counter. Always a good sign. The tempura was... read more

This is the first time for me to have the counter style tempura cooking and I’m very excited for it. Heard some of the big name also dine here, so there must be something special with this restaurant. The tempura being freshly prepared right in front of me. We order the set menu, then it begin with the shrimp tempura,... More

We were recommended to come here by local family members. And on our first night in Tokyo we found the restaurant fairly easy. You go in and see on the walls the rich and famous that have dined here before. You proceed downstairs to the main tempura dining area in a bar counter like seating area. You pick from various...

Being our first time here, we ordered the set menu instead of ordering individual portions, so we could try a range of things. The asparagus was literally the best I've ever had (I know you're thinking it's just asparagus, but this was really very good). This isn't your typical tempura - I'm used to a more oily, heavier, pale yellow... More

We ate the Tempura there and it was just perfect. The spices were amazing and a taste that I have never experienced before. It is a quite pricey restaurant, but it is worth every penny.

For starters, this restaurant is the 'splurge' type of restaurant. I'm not trying to imply anything here but the price of the meal here is not exactly cheap. But, if you do have some to splurge on high end dining after a good shopping in Ginza then this might be the place. Well, how can you rate a good tempura,... More

We came to this restaurant relying on its reputation for great tempura. The tempura was good but not great. What blew us away was the price. For two of us eating a meal that did not fill us up, and no extras like alcohol, the bill, converted to dollars, was $312.10. I thought that I had misread the menu, but... More

Not having been to a specific tempura restaurant before it was a great experience although certainly on the higher priced scale at 8,000 yen per person for even the lowest set menu plus drinks so with a few drinks it was around 10,500 yen a head. As the venue only seats around 10 you are treated very well by the... More

A never ending flow of tempura based on fresh ingredients. Not cheap but a very enjoyable evening. I would certainly come back here.

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
