Husband and wife run this little shop. If you like tempura, pop in. 8 seats at the bar and a table on the side. It is not earth shatteringly good, but gets the job done.

The food is super delicious, very fresh and very tasty tempura. The owners are very friendly and explain how to eat and what you eat. Very welcoming atmosphere. Just go and enjoy!

Dedicated to tempora cooking, this this tiny restaurant with an eight person counter, is well worth a visit. The menu features a choice of several set tempora combinations plus your choice of individual items. The chef (owner?) cooks each item in front of you and then describes it before serving you. The food is fresh and tasty and the service... More

Ebihachi is a lovely, cosy little restaurant with counter-style service. We both had a tempura set and the food was amazing. The people running the place were both really friendly and happy to explain about the food.

Takayama is a very quiet place at night. We had left it a bit late, about,8.30pm,to look for a place to eat but we finally stumbled upon this warm and cosy tempura bar tucked away in an alleyway, on a cold April night. The Chef/ Owner was very friendly and explained which accompaniaments to eat with the tempura , his... More

One of the few tempura restaurant amid all the "hida beef restaurants" in Takayama. There was 3 ways of eating the tempura with one dipping in either salt, curry powder or tempura sauce. The chef fried the tempura pieces by pieces so that one get to digest the flavor. The squid wrapped in miso leaf, pumpkin and onion karaage were... More

Firstly, the tempura is exquisite. I normally avoid tempura because it's usually oily and poorly cooked. Not so here. Perfect tempura, crisp and tasty, is whatbyou get here. But that's not all - the place is tiny and you sit at a bar where the chef/owner cooks for you and explains each course as he prepares it. We learnt a... More

I knew about beef restaurants in Takayama but not about Tempura restaurant. So, I asked a local guy, was told about this, and recommended this restaurant. Next day the... More

We were so glad we found this place. Takayama is a rather sleepy place after the sun goes down and we were looking for a nice local restaurant to have our dinner. We found this restaurant in a small alleyway. The cosy restaurant is run by a husband and wife team. We loved freshly fried tempura and the rustic ambience.... More

Food wise, I would say I do enjoy. The mix of... More
