Third visist in 3 years. Quality is consistent as always. Chef was friendly towards tourist and even recommended yakiniku and sushi places he visited

I never saw the logic of paying for deep fried food until I saw how much tempura can really accentuate the freshness of the ingredients. Have visited four times and it is consistently excellent - lunch is better value and they do not compromise on...the quality. The amadai, uni wrapped in shiso and shirako are highlights.More

We thought we knew Tempura amd Fukamachi proved us wrong. Sitting at the counter watching the father and son duo preparing the food for you is watching art in the making. If you think that deep fried food is simple to make and thus supposed...to be cheap, an experience here will change it. Not only the ingredients are really of top quality, the chef make sure the temperature is always right, you don't really hear the sizzling sound as he maintains the oil temperature. He also maintains the balance of the tempura batter. All these attention to details result to an extraordinary tempura meal. If we have to pick a favourite, the uni tempura is our pick. A generous portion of Hokkaido uni is wrapped in shiso leaf, fried just enough so the tempura batter is crispy and so that it's just hot enough but you can still enjoy it directly, resulting in an umami taste that's out of this world. The baby squid deserves a mention as well, as it tastes unlike any squid we've ever tasted before. What a great dining experience and definitely worth it's star!More

Tempura is truly an art form here. The chefs frying the various pieces of vegetables and seafood really are performing works of art. We were seated for a late lunch, no reservations, so we were seated at a table not the bar. A server brought...over our pieces after each round was fried to our cute set of small plates and dipping sauces/salt. There was an interesting assortment of Japanese vegetables, while the seafood was so fresh and delicious. The tempura batter is so light and airy, it's just enough without overdoing. You finish with clam miso soup, ice cream, and hojicha. Great experience, though quite pricey, especially for lunch; hence the -1 star. It came out to $85 a person, and we didn't even order drinks.More

This was one of our favorite meals, maybe even more than some of the three star Michelin restaurants. Our concierge at the Tokyo Station Hotel was able to get this reservation for lunch. The food was amazing and truly special. The chefs spoke limited english,...but would give us food and then say 'salt' or 'sauce' to know how to eat the food. We loved it and will go back againMore

First-rate ingredients. Light tempura batter. Perfection from start to finish. Professional service. Would recommend early booking.

If you like Tempura, there cannot be many better places than this. Only 14 seats at the counter, so you see everything (and a few things you might be squeamish about) but the food just fabulous. It is also for silly money (and you have...to pay cash!), but then this is quality in Tokyo.More

We were able to get reservations through our hotel, which recommended this as a top tempura place. Most of the seats were at the counter, although none were left when we arrived, so we sat at a table. We had the tempura menu + sashimi...for about $150pp. They serve a reasonable number of pieces of carefully prepared tempura (fresh oil, so nice batter), most were very good, although a couple of the veges were boring. The fish tempura were the best. The sashimi consisted of a few small pieces of boring white fish for an extra $20. They served a small tasty dessert with tea in the lounge after the tempura. Overall, the food was good and service excellent, but nothing really special to justify the very high prices.More
