If you would like to eat the genuine Tendon, I recommend this place. I think it was a bit higher than other tendon but it's worthwhile to go to eat here. My friend and me were very satisfied :-)

We came for lunch. There was a line to get in but it moved fast. We were seated in the front room, Japanese were escorted to the back rooms. I ordered one of the tempura plates and it was delicious although I prefer a lighter...More

The service was not up to usual Japanese high standards. We took a ticket and wandered around for 20 mins whilst waiting for a table - then they tried to seat us on the floor which we find too uncomfortable. The food service was slow,...More

I've had plenty of tempura here and this is just not great. The breeding is very heavy and it is so fried that it's soggy and sitting in grease. I prefer my tempura lightly battered and not greasy. The pickles were fine but I won't...More

I have eaten lots of great tempura but this was by far the worst tempura I've ever had. The batter was heavy and greasy with oil dripping as you bite into it and it was nothing like light and crispy batter that you can expect...More

Here because of a review. My opinion is the tempura is abit too soft. I do like the sauce on top of the rice anyway. Good to experience it. Nice location too near senso ji temple. Asakusa

Stumbled upon this place as there was a long queue outside and a good smell from within. Glad we did. Food was tasty and different to tempura we have had before. It wasn't greasy and meal for 2 with drinks came in at just over...More

If I could do zero stars I would! Came here on the recommendation from trip advisor and I still feel gross! Absolutely greasy and flat. Feel so sad that the fish and prawn died for nothing. No vegetable tempura either! Absolutely overpriced and service was...More

Chance upon this place after visiting senso-ji. Saw a long queue outside the restaurant, so as a typical tourist, we decided to joint the queue too. We didn't regret. It is the best tendon! Tempura is fried with sesame oil. It is not oily at...More

The portion is big. With a big prawn, pepper, mixture of 3 prawns and vegetable mixture and a seasonal fried fish. The rice is piping hot with sauce. End the tendon with cold sake. DELICIOUS.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
