Loved it, so reasonable and a great experience. Must go early. The queue starts from the seats on the right of the room and snakes all the way to the left, and also on the outside. Staff hardly speak any English, but it was fine for us. My kids (4, 6 and 8) all love tempura (especially ebi), so they... More

The restaurant is actually within a building (shopping mall?) and you would need to walk a little before you see it as it's not visible from the road. I arrived with a friend and saw a line outside. So we waited there. Then we glanced to the left and saw a vending machine. The couple in front of us was... More

This is a chain restaurant, and the quality of the Tempura is universally good at all I have found so far. We went in at around 11:30am, and there were around 10 people waiting, and a full house of diners. When we left at around 12:30 the restaurant was full, and there was a large line both inside and outside!... More

We went as soon as we arrived to Fukuoka from tenjin station. It is tricky to find. Go in at the movie theater ticket booth and it is right inside the little "mall". Great food, maybe a 15 min wait at 2pm on Thursday.

Come early to avoid waiting in line. Resto opens at 10:30am and the line forms even before it opens. They serve the tempura straight from the frying pot. Excellent food and efficient service. I hope to cone back one day soon.

Other reviewers have told you location and prices. I just want to say this is a unique, fun restaurant with excellent food. It is a place you talk about for a long time and I have wanted to return since our last Japanese visit 8 years ago. Our son, who lives if Fukuoka, loves the pumpkin condiment which we missed...

My friend is the vegetarian(not very strict i guess) who works at Fukuoka for couple years. Before we left Fukuoka, he took us to this restaurant. Actually its not that kind of fancy restaurant for tourist at all, and dont give it a thought that u can speak English here or something. Also u may feel that the waiter is... More
