“Nice cozy Japanese joint”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

It is a little pricey for local standard. However the food quality is good. They carry some exotic fish from Japan.

Their wasabi is the best I have had in Chiang Mai.

Service is good. Parking could be a little challenging.
Overall, I'd come back from time to time.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Right across from Mandarin Oriental, the decor is fab and food even better. The wagyu is to die for.
Thai food in general is wonderful but nice to have some good Japanese food in a great little restaurant.

“Average food, for premium price.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Average food, for premium price.

With all the high praises on Tripadvisor, I expected superior food and even better quality. The prices are quite high for the Thai standards, and the food is not that great.

I would not recommend to go there.

“Sublime”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Tengoku is in a league of its own in Thailand in terms of quality, authenticity and attention to detail. My wife and I have dined here dozens of times since Tengoku opened and we always enjoy the same superior level of service. It helps that the owner visits Japan, knows the seafood market there and gets the best fish delivered to Tengoku, so patrons are not getting the same fish as in chain restaurants, it's amazing that such a modest restaurant can have access to the best fish, more so than most five-star resorts. The most interesting aspect of Tengoku is the recently opened Omakase (literally "up to the chef") bar area, where the chef prepares the best of what's fresh. Outside of Japan, it's hard to find a restaurant that cares so much about authentic preparation and presentation as Tengoku.

“Wonderful time and food!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

The service is exceptional! Very good japanese food...excellent service and they are always smiling! Would definitely recommend it! Very very good experience. Eggplant wit miso sauce is fabulous and the tekka don is very good. Ask for the spicy chilli sauce and the tengoku wasabi.
