Stopped in on A work visit and I must say the food was good. I have had better, but i have had much worse. I had a meal from the "Chinese favorites" section of the menu "General Chicken" (separate menu item from General Tso chicken). The chicken was tender and tasted fresh. The broccoli with it was... read more

Tempura delivers to the local hotels - what a great time savings for a true quality restaurant. And the food was superb. We ordered the chicken curry which was outstanding, 4 spicy tuna maki rolls, the recommended Nebraska rolls and the namesake vegetable tempura. Actually, the Nebraska roll was my least favorite as it is not true sushi (raw) but... More

Tempura would rate a 4 or 5 rating for it's food and service which are excellent. Unfortunately when I went to the restroom I discovered the back emergency exit was blocked. Not a little blocked but seriously someone could die in a fire blocked. The 8 feet or so from the men's bathroom to the emergency exit was completely blocked... More

Found this place highly rated on Trip Advisor just cannot believe anyone couuld comment with anything good? dirty wait staff, rusty lettuce, cold soup, small portions, slow service and no flavor to the Chicken? At leat the weakest example of Asian Food I've experienced ever. Just stay away from this place!

Food was cooked fresh and was wonderful! I find that it is hard to find good Asian food that doesn't seem like it has sat on a buffet line. Tempura was definitely freshly cooked with fresh ingredients. Highly recommend!

Love love this place but would love it even more if it wasn't so expensive. The food is priced a little more than I like considering we are in north platte. I'll go no matter the price just not as often.

Our waiter didn't understand english and screwed up our order and didn't understand our question about where is our Tempura Shrimp? That explains why the word appetizer was misspelled on the menu. Definitely authentic Chinese. It's off the beaten path from the expressway, but there was no wait unlike all of the roadside dinner places. We get great Chinese food... More

A very courteous and conscientious staff with a good selection of oriental inspired entrees. The Nebraska roll has a nice kick and the beef and broccoli was delicious. Along with a broad selection of out of the ordinary appetizers Tempura is a fabulous selection for a family meal out!

Tempura was as delicious as it was surprising! Quiet, spacious, with superb service, and independently owned and operated by a Japanese American...what a delightful relief from the usual highway-associated chain restaurants!
