Average and a bit overpriced!

perhaps the location which is so close to kaminarimon gate makes it an easy tourist trap! We have been here years ago and the food was delicious. But returning here again after 4 years plus perhaps the quality has deteriorate. Two of us ordered the tempura don and 3 ordered the cold soba with... read more

Conveniently situated near the Kaminarimon gate, this establishment serves the old-school tempura with semi-crispy, breadcrumb-less batter unlike any other modern tempura. The tendon that we ordered came in a very simple rice box with no decorations whatsoever. It was very simple, tasty, and old-school. The seafood bowl on the other hand was naturally colourful thanks to the various type of... More

I had a list of restaurants near Asakusa that I wanted to try but when we arrived Nakamise dori was so crowded and we were hungry so we ended up having lunch in the first restaurant that could accommodate our party of 15, although we had to break up into small groups. Sansada is very close to the Kaminarimon gate... More

I came to this restaurant as it was close to our hostel and it boasted of traditional Japanese Tempura. However, for the average quality of the food, the prices were extremely high. For example, the cheapest Tendon cost ¥1600 and a dish of 3 Tempura prawns cost a shocking ¥3500. To put this into perspective, the Tendon at Tenya down... More

The restaurant is just right next to Kaminarimon and short walk from the Asakusa subway station. It opens at 11:30 am, we reached around 11:15 am and there was already a few persons lining up outside of the restaurant. The service was a bit slow but it didn't bother us at all, we were enjoying the traditional setting of the... More

I have experienced Hanyun's experience where the waiter was rude. We've been waiting for long time for our table and food, hence we have to give a couple of strawberries for our kids. Immediately the waiter shout "No fruit in restaurant" and push away our strawberries out of table. Very impolite indeed.

Despite not speaking japanese when we visited Tokyo, the staff were really helpful, and recommended some really great tempura dishes for us! We had tempura prawns with hot soba, kakiage and a rice dish. It was so good that we ordered a second round of kakiage. We eat a lot of japanese food, and this is the best tempura we've... More

My wife is Japanese and had an acceptable meal at this restaurant previously so suggested we try it again. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the woman who greeted us was so rude it has permanently tainted our impression of Sansada.This is the only poor service experience I have had during two visits to Japan spanning some 6 weeks. I think the... More

We ate here upon the recommendation of our guide, and she said that the Japanese usually ate here to celebrate a special occasion, hence the prices are a little more expensive than usual. The special thing about their tempura is that it's fried in sesame oil, which you can smell from a mile away. Upon entering the restaurant, it was... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
