Unlike many Tempura restaurants, each piece is served one at a time to enable the eater to relish the freshness of the batter and enjoy the single piece of shrimp, prawn, sea food and vegetable. A pleasurable experience and a must try.

Two things all TripAdvisor reviewers seem to agree on about Tenichi Ginza Honten is the supreme quality of the tempura batter and the similarly supreme price. I guess you get what you pay for. In this case, the the batter covering each and every seafood or vegetable piece was sublime. It was not too flaky but somehow was not too... More

It has been around since 1930 and the quality is obviously why. It is very expensive but also a lot of food if you choose the set menu's just know you will get a lot of food. The sevice is outstanding and it is well worth finding out what good tempura tastes like.

High end/ slightly pricey tempura? Definitely. Fresh ingredients? No doubt. So what? ...Something else was different. And the answer (at lease to me) lies in the batter and the way the chef fries each piece with concentration and skill. The tempura was soft, fluffy yet crunchy and not oily...and it sure was very different from the other tempuras i've had... More

Little has changed since we were here last. The food is still excellent, the ingredients are the freshest possible, the fish the vegetables, the seafood, the rice. Who cares if Clinton and Kofi Annen ate here once, at the Ten Ichi Honten Ginza I am the top priority guest receiving the best service whenever I put my foot in the... More

Whenever we are in Tokyo, we have Tempura at Ten Ichi. There is no tempura in the world that can compete with this almost "non-fatty" version of the dish. The ingredients, fish, shellfish, vegetables, even the rice and the fruit are picked for their freshness and authentic taste. Before being served to the customer, the tempura is well blotted to...

Tenichi is expensive even for my salary. But I love their tempura. I only wish that elderly Manager would be more grateful and less superficial.

Ate there last night. We had reservations at 7 pm. Great service, people, location, setting - 5 stars. Food is above-average tempura - 4 stars. Cost is over-priced - 2-stars. (Three choices) Multi-course meals for one-person start at about $150+. Instead, me and my 14-year old son ate ali carte for about $160 total ($80/ea). Not a lot of food.The... More

We actually stumbled by mistake to this restaurant. Found out later that it happened to be one of the famous places in Tokyo. As you can see many celebrities have visited here. Set menu for lunch starting Yen 10,000 which is not cheap. The seafood was very fresh and cooked to perfection and most important not oily at all. After... More
