The sauce on the tempura is delicious and savory but these babies aren’t crispy. Not too sure what’s the hype about, but if we want some tempura, we want it crispy.

We are used to the golden deep fried ebi with tempura flour. But not these tempura. The tempura is soaked in black sauce and served on rice, Tendon. The texture is very different, tempura is a bit soggy. But the tempura prawn, fish are fresh....More

Went to this restaurant because it was recommended in my guide book Very disappointed as the tempura was very greasy , rather tasteless and the rice soggy. Possibly the poorest meal in our visit to Japan in 19 days

Saw a hapless diner struggling with chopsticks and attentively, unsolicitedly, placed forks alongside our noodle bowls. The tempura was good as was the complimentary green tea as starter and palate- cleanser at the end. Really pleasant after supper stroll back to our hotel.

Tempura has to be my one of my favorite Japanese foods (right there with sushi), and this is probably my favorite place to get it in Tokyo! So incredibly good, reasonably priced and an easy, quick walk from Senso-Ji Temple!

Although this restaurant is very popular (and recommended by many reviewers), it is not easy to find, since it doesn't have a clear English sign. So, be careful. Although the food (especially tempura) is excellent and I enjoyed it very much, you might find it...More

This place is known for their tempura and yes, rightfully so but if you go you must try their eggplant in a black sauce. It is scrumptious and I could have easily had an entire meal of this one dish. I ordered their combination tempura...More

For our lunch, we decided it would be tempura, but should it be the crispy variety or the soggy variety? We had planned to eat the crispier ones at Masaru, but decided to try the more popular Daikokuya [大黑家] which has a more extensive menu...More

Famous restaurant recommended by lots of people and magazines in Asakusa. The tempura was soggy...what? Yes, it was soggy...For my opinion I think Tenya still better than this and cheaper too...for those haven’t try it yet you can give it a try. Just my opinion...

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
