Description: Yakiniku Tenka is a specialized Japanese Grill Restaurant. The Restaurant is diveded into private rooms designed in Japanese style. Before entering the rooms, our guests take off their shoes . In the center of the table you will find a pecial smokless grill where the guests grill their own meat. The dining experience in Yakiniku Tenka is a unique one and very authentic to its origin in Japan. You may read more about us in our offical facebook page :-)

The marinated meat-on-the-table-grill was reasonably tasty, if bland, but the rest of the dishes were amateurish. With every course, the waiter would proudly and pretentiously announce the name, in Japanese, of the sauce, but every single dish had the same seasoning as the previous one - an unsophisticated mix of sugar and soy sauce, this time with a bit of chili, and that time with a little sesame. The stir fries were watery and the salad was just ridiculous: iceberg lettuce with carrot.
The dinner reminded me of the kind of "Japanese food" you would get in provincial American cities in the 1980s - an approximation at best.
The seafood stir-fry was particularly bad - rubbery frozen product. Could not eat it.
The place itself is clearly fraying and unkempt with terrible acoustics between the "private" rooms. The service, though, is attentive.

We´ve been yesterday again in this restaurant. We had the Taste-Menu and then took Kobe-Beef extra :-) With the stroller our stay was not so comfortable, because the rooms are small. But all in one - our visit was very good.

Excellent! The meat is as lean as one could hope for, marinated in delicate spices and it is a pleasure to grill it oneself. First-class cuisine. The service is extraordinarily friendly, even though the restaurant has existed for over a decade. The setting esthetically pleasing. One point to be made: in some of the rooms one hears the conversation in the kitchen rather loud. That is rather distracting. A meal is not cheap, but good Japanese restaurants never are and the price level lies below that of the few other restaurants of similar quality in the area.

Ate there at 2 different occasions - Each time the experience was very special.

A short intro - Yakiniku Tenka is a Japanese grill restaurant where you get the meat and grill it yourself on a special traditional grill (Mongolian if I recall correctly) in the center of the table.
Each table is a room where you sit with in a very traditionally styled Japanese setting with rice paper walls.

If I recall correctly - on both cases we took a multi course meal comprised from all kind of meat, fish and a seafood entry.
The meat was very good and the general experience of grilling the marinated pieces of meat was very fun.

The rice btw - as trivial as it seems - Is amazing - don't skip it.
So is the warm sake.

In short - great place for a fancy meal on a special occasion for whenever you feel like a japanese place - but a different.

A restaurant that I like to go should have a tranquil atmosphere and courteous staff, and it's not easy to find in a loud packed hob-a-nob Israel. So ever since I found Yakiniku Tenka, it has become a default place for birthday celebrations and important dates. And the food - it's just so tasty!
