Tensuke is reason alone to visit the cool, off-the-beaten track neighborhood of Kōenji. Super local place, definitely worth the wait - line moves fast. Just order the “egg tempura” and you get a full course of various types of tempura served up straight from the...More

The tempura here is delicious. They are obviously using fresh food and the batter is crispy but not overwhelming. The rice was sort of sweet, and there was plenty to fill up on. The main chef was extremely charismatic and friendly. This is an intimate...More

In the heart of Koenji (IMO the best Tokyo neighbourhood) sits this amazing tempura bar. Great service, great value and most importantly great food! A must try!
