Went to Tenkai Jap Restaurant on the evening of 2nd May 2013 (Thursday) for its buffet. I was really pleased with the ambience of the restaurant. It was cozy and comfortable. We started off the buffet with the sashimi, which was truly fresh. The food was generally good, especially the teppanyaki station which made me drool with their wagyu beef rump and grilled corn. My only gripe was that there wasn't enough variety. Or maybe it's just me coz I don't eat some of the food offered in the buffet. But for the price tag, I was expecting more variety, honestly.

Another thing about the restaurant was the impeccable service that we received. The chefs, waitstaff were all so accommodating and friendly. They made you feel welcome and at ease. If I ever visit Bali again, I'll go back just for the fresh sashimi and the wagyu beef!

We went for the buffet. Best Japanese food in Bali. Come very hungry as you will want tho go back again and again. Sushi/sashimi is made fresh, service is great, atmosphere authentic but it's the food that will make me go back. A bit pricey for Bali standards (still heaps cheaper that Australia) but definitely worth it.

This is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Bali. Whilst the inside restaurant can be a little chilly due to high air-conditioning, the outside terrace is a lovely vantage point to take in the nearby lit pool at night and soak up the night air. The food on Buffet nights is outstanding - the freshest and best sushi and sashimi you will find and freshly made in front of your eyes. A huge array of salads and fresh vegetables, large selection and variety of hot foods and freshly cooked tempura to order as well as cooked to order Teppanyaki. There is literally something for everyone and the price is very reasonable. Don't eat lunch before you go as the variety of food will keep you going back for more to try. A dessert bar proves a lovely end to the meal. Drinks are a little pricey but don't miss this restaurant.
