I tried the Tokyo branch in Ginza and I must say that as a big tempura fan, I was disappointed. The food was OK but way over priced for what it is.

I know this is unfair to Ippoh Osaka. to write a review about Ippoh Tokyo. I have to say this is the worst meal in my life. The tempura is soft, I never have soft tempura in my entire life. I guess the tempeture of the oil was not right?! it's really soft. the prawn inside is soft ( not... More

My visit to Ippoh in Osaka this time brought me new experience about tempura. It was not only the quality of food, but also the artistic mind and practice behind the dishes. We had the set menu of 12,000 yens. The appetisers were subtly done; the main course tempura was deep-fried piece by piece with the chef cooking right in... More

We went as a party of 3 as a special treat for one of the friends with whom we were travelling. It was a Saturday night and there were special (reduced) prices! However, for the full menu (appetizer, sashimi, sushi, soup, tempura of 16 pieces and dessert), with 3 beers each to drink, the price was Y62,000 - so quite... More

This is the easiest way to go back to old Japan as this charming restaurant was opened some 200 years ago and is run by a charming 5th generation daughter of the Seti family. We ended up in a delightful Japanese house and in a private room with our own Tempura chef. The food was delicate and exquisite. The batter... More

My wife and I never had tempura this good. We had 12 types of tempura, each one cooked to crispy perfection and yet so delicate with nary a hint of grease. The batter was light and crispy, and each ingredient chosen was so fresh. We especially loved the maitake mushroom for its earthly taste and the pumpkin which was sweet... More

2 chefs cook immaculate tempura in a private dining room. Makes you feel special! Not cheap but still well worth the experience. Superb unobtrusive service.

Went there for dinner at the end of November. Really bad ventilation system and as being foreigners there, we got a mediocre chef to cook for us. Most of our tempura food was burnt. Half way through dinner, our eyes were so sore because of the strong smell of the oil. It took more than 24 hours for the smell... More

Just to be clear. This is an expensive place. Don't come here, if you are on a budget or if you cannot appreciate the precision of cooking something just perfectly. Tempura is a seemingly simple dish - however, the simpler a dish - the more difficult it is to master. Ipoh is certainly one of the best Tempura places in... More

Sushi,Sashimi,teppanyaki,udon,soba,...The Japanese dish we always think of in priority. Japanese tempura is actually the classic one which always be dropped out of the limited list. Since its appearance is easy to make the alike dish..... At IPPOH-tempura restaurant, you will be impressed with the real goodness of micron thin crispy battered fresh shrimps, small moisture fish fillets, many exotic veggies,and... More
