Are you sceptical that a tempura joint can earn two Michelin stars? Kondo will convince you. The humblest ingredients but of the best quality, lightly battered a la minute then fried and presented for immediate consumption. The eye opener our night - lotus root. Creamy...More

The booking was made several months in advance, and the lunch was eagerly anticipated, given the restaurant’s excellent reviews. And we were certainly not disappointed. Seating was for fifteen, and because it was lunch, I guess, only three of the customers that day were men....More

Upstairs in an office building off Ginza, this little tempura restaurant is one of the best tempura places we tried within Tokyo. Must try: White bait, Uni, White asparagus, and Sweet potato.

Came to Tempura Kondo for lunch (we had a reservation). My fiance and I each ordered fixed-style menus (Sumire for me and Tsubaki for him plus some sweet potato which they are known for). Sat at a bar while the chefs tempura'd: prawns, fish, eel,...More

We went during a lunch service and was lucky enough to be seated at the counter with Kondo-san himself (though we did book in advance). In short, this is the best tempura I've ever had and I'd highly recommend it. The batter is lighter than...More

I love veg tempura and this restaurant serves excellent ones. I especially enjoyed spring wild plants! Sweet potato was amazing too. Kondo san's tempura wasn't greasy at all and ingredients were cooked perfectly. The only criticism I have about this restaurant is that the 9th...More

Absolutely overrated restaurant. Tempura without any variation. Same sauce, same tempura style regardless of ground product. Very boring, without any creativity. I do not now where the Michelin rating comes from. I would even say, everybody who learns this for 4 weeks can do it....More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

I pre-ordered my set lunch when booking and wasn’t even presented with a menu on arrival. I think they only serve set courses but if you have any favourites I can’t imagine they would refuse to make them if you make a... More
