This place was highly recommended in reviews for the top tempura restaurants in Shinjuku. And it did not disappoint! Perfectly cooked seafood and vegetables. Sitting at the bar chatting with the chefs is a great way to spend an evening. 5 stars!

It was easy to find the restaurant in the busy Shinjuku area. Since the ground floor restaurant was full, we were directed to the first floor. Our table was very close to the chef. It was great seeing how he fried the tempura for us!...More
