very small local place (seats about 8 at the bar) recommended to us by the ryokan we stayed at; 5 pieces of assorted prawn and fish, plus 5 pieces of vegetable tempura - the costs was 5,400 yen for 2 people including a small bottle of Asahi beer. Reasonable prices but the food came too quickly and was very heavily... More

We went here at a recommendation and we were so happy we did! Little place which sits about 8 persons at the counter, and a small tatami room for maybe a few more guests. The place has such a nice warm, welcoming vibe. Chef is friendly, and food is great. Pricing is good value as well. Please come here for... More

Ebihachi is located about 10 minutes walk from the Takayama train station towards the old town. The tempura is light and crisp, and one of the best I have ever tasted. The chef has some English and explains a little about how he cooks the tempura and the traditional options of eating tempura. This is a small cosy restaurant with... More

Hidden away in a Takayama side street, this Tempura restaurant is a must for anyone travelling in the area. The owner is very welcoming and along with his wife talk you through each tempura dish as it is made fresh in front of you. They are served with delicious tempura sauce, salt and curry powder. The quality of the ingredients... More

Sat at the bar and had the tsuki menu. 2 shrimp, 2 fish (1 unknown and 1 eel), squid, 5 vegetables (pumpkin, aubergine, peppers, onion and asparagus, shitake mushroom), mist and rice for ¥2250. All cooked really well. Chef explained we could eat the tempura with salt, curry powder, salt and curry powder or dipping sauce but never dipping sauce... More

Tempura at its absolute best. Most seating is at a counter in front of the chef. So we watched as he dipped fresh vegetables and fish into a batter he had just made, cooked it, and served it directly to us after it was done. He told us what each item was in English. The dinners we ordered came with... More

Best Tempura meal I have ever eaten, complete with a lesson on Tempura etiquette. Enjoyed every moment of our meal. Friendly hosts and a good time visiting with our co-diners. Thinking about our next visit already.

Recommended by our host at The Rickshaw Inn. Lovely little restaurant run by a couple who've been doing this for over 40 years, so they've got half an idea. Took the time to explain what each piece served was in decent English. The food was fantastic, as good a tempura I've eaten. Served curry powder as an accompaniment which I've... More

After having quite a bit of hida beef in Takayama, we decided we would go for something else. This place was an excellent choice. The outside of the restaurant looks very smart and inviting. There is a row of probably 8 seats at the bar, where the chef cooks, and there might be another 3 or 4 tables inside. it's... More
