Chose this tiny restaurant based on TA reviews and weren't disappointed, though it was pricier than we expected (hadn't seen the latest review, which included a price). We walked by it 3 times before finally spotting the small sign above the entry. We were fortunate to get seated though we had no reservation--the staff couldn't have been nicer. We chose the least expensive of the 3 options--8 small servings of tempura, plus a small cup of miso soup, a cold tofu appetizer (delicious citrus flavor), and jellied pear for dessert. Plus a large beer and cold sake. Approximately $210 for the two of us. But it was a sweet place to spend our money. The young waiter spoke English and was helpful in guiding us and explaining the kinds of tempura we were served and how best to dress it. The chef was charming and meticulous. The tempura included shrimp heads and bodies (separate), bitter beans, uni (sea urchin) and nori, shiitake mushrooms, 2 kinds of fish, pumpkin, and a fried donut-like ball. Excellent! So glad we didn't give up on our search.
