Not expecting a Japanese restaurant so close, our school faculty had lunch there with an exchange teacher from Japan. We had a nice experience, and because of the group size, did not have extremely fast service, but that just gave us more time to talk. Not a fan of Sushi myself, but the Tempera soup was very good, and the... More

We love their food. The wine list is small but outstanding for a good selection. Service is good and friendly.

We had dinner at the Tempura House Sat. night. We had a 5:30 reservation and they took us on time. We had to wait a little longer than normal for our food. The waitress said that our meals were prepared in separate kitchens. I was a little confused by that. The service was ok.. The food was good. Overall nor... More

We showed up unannounced around 6:30 on a Monday evening and the dining room was pretty crowded. Even without a reservation, they sat us in a timely fashion (which was nice, since when I called earlier in the evening all I got was a answering machine). This restaurant is in an old home right near the downtown Lake Geneva shopping... More

Went for lunch and had an awesome experience. My wife had the Chicken Tempura, my son had the Mongolian beef and I had the Yakisoba Chicken. Everything was excellent. I tried them all, but my favorite was the Yakisoba Chicken. The service was great as well.

We were the only customers today during Oktoberfest at 12:00. We had great service. We had sushi which was incredibly fresh, beef & shrimp fried rice (like my Bachan use to make), and tempura Udon. We all received soup along with our meals. Everything was amazing and the price was perfect. My kids wanted to stay for dinner. This is... More

Amazing food. Wait time was a little long. Lobster was a little chewy but steak and sushi was fantastic!

Sushi on a hot summer day is a blessiong, as was the cool interiour of this beautiful old home. Great service! We had an assortment of sushi, and the sushi chief is a seasoned, tiny woman who creates beautiful sushie. My only concern is that we spent almost $80 for a sushi lunch (one glass of wine each). I would... More

The service is horrible and food is over priced. We showed up 10 minutes before our reservation and I asked to use the restroom, but was told i could not use it. We should have walked out then. As the services only got worst from that point.

I enjoyed the food. Tempura was good but a little bland. My hibachi filet was delicious and so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. Price $28 for that size filet with rice, veggies, soup and salad was a deal. So much food I have another meal out of the leftovers. Hubbys Mongolian beef and shrimp Was just... More
