The tempura batter was not terribly crispy. I suppose it might be a particular style but I didn't love it. This was sort of soft and almost granular, the texture of fried superfine sugar, perhaps. The amount of food you're served is scant. One scallop. One mushroom. Two shrimp. One asparagus spear. Little more. It was hard to believe it... More

Was last night in Tokyo and had not checked the tempura box. Was rated very high and recommended by the hotel. Anytime you walk into a restaurant and see pictures of presidents and singers you know it will be expensive, but the tempura did not disappoint. We did the set menu Sakura which was the middle of road selection and... More

Had lunch for 6 pax, 2 children, had 3 set meals and 3 tempura bowl. I was expecting an over the top tempura experience which I did not get. Tempura was OK, a bit soggy when served to us. The prawns were quite small. We were not seated at the counter as they don't allow parties that order the tempura... More

Had the set tempura dinner at the Ginza restaurant. Tempura was fresh and most importantly, does not taste or look oily. Really great skill. Had many famous personality dined at this restauarant.

Four of us ate here. I suppose I am not a connoisseur of tempura, I simply enjoy it very much. This was the freshest, tastiest tempura I had ever eaten. It was quite simply delicious, well presented, and consumed with enthusiasm. With a beer it made a reasonable and delicious lunch.

I went for lunch and before being seated, the menu was presented, as if to confirm I knew what I was in for. They even had me pick my set before being seated. Thankfully I read the TripAdvisor reviews and knew I could afford the cheapest set, just under $50. Service was impeccable. I got a seat at the bar... More

Visited the place upon invitation from our local Japanese friends. The place is full of locals, the tempura lunch set are quite good and filling. Price a bit on the high side. I would say it is an ok place...

I've eaten at the main restaurant as well as the branch restaurant in the Isetan Department Store, at the table as well as the counter. The tempura served here is not the tempura you would see in the US. It is very light, not greasy and preserves the freshness of the ingredients. It is served one at a time and... More

Second time in this restaurant. Spent 6,000 Yen per person for set lunch. Wonderful food and setting. The chef and owner presented the many dishes well and made us feel very welcomed. We found out that the salt they were using was from my Slovenian friends home. I will come back to this restaurant next time in Tokyo!
