This is how tempura should be enjoyed sitting at bar whilst the chef places each freshly cooked piece of tempura in front of you. Tiny bar so I guess it gets full pretty quickly.

Ok but a little pricy for what You get. Very friendly owners. Very fat when You only eat tempura. All in all a Nice experience!

We came here based on other reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed! We ordered a set meal each (shrimp and fish), which also came with 6 six vegetables, miso, rice & pickles. Everything was great. The vegetables were cooked just right, and the batter was light and tasty. The owners were very friendly and explained the meal... More

I am sorry but I have to say that the tempura and tendon that we had was not to the Japanese standards that I expected. It is not only my opinion, but also my partner's. Very small portions, expensive enough, not tasty... I don't have anything else to add but that I went to a nearby supermarket to buy something... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, and it is some of the best tempura we've had. The owners are very friendly and explain each dish carefully and with great pride. Most important, the food is both delicate and flavorful. We would certainly go back.

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.

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
