If you are on the lookout for an authentic, tasty, but affordable tempura experience, you MUST visit this extraordinary place.

Dining here was a very special experience. The restaurant is family run and has been in business for over 100 years. The service was impecciable, the dishes delicious and very carefully prepared. If you are looking for top of the line tempura drenched in tradition, this is your place.
