Tempura Tenkane has been operating for 10 years and is probably the most popular tempura restaurant in Tokyo. The fish tempura is crispy, yet light and juicy! Watching the chef prepare these high-quality, fresh tempura was quite the delight. There are three set menus to try from; although you only get one small dish at a time, it is actually quite filling! For lunch, expect to pay ¥3,000~¥4,000; and for dinner, ¥6,000~¥8,000.

This two Michelin star restaurant in Ginza is on the pricey side, but the tempura is simply exquisite. The tempura vegetables were crisp and juicy. The clams were also delicious! The batter is light, unlike anything you've ever had! This restaurant is highly popular so it's a little difficult to get a reservation; it is easier to go for lunch, but it's still as satisfying! It is a two Michelin star restaurant, so prepare to pay accordingly.
For lunch, it's between ¥6,500~¥10,000; and for dinner, its over ¥10,000.

Tempura Motoyoshi is close to Gaimmae station, and is a high-end tempura restaurant. It is a one Michelin star restaurant and you have to make a reservation before-hand.
The vegetable tempura is incredible and is suitable for vegetarians. The restaurant is tiny, but you get to sit at the counter and watch the chef do what he does best!
The "omakase course" (leaving it up to the chef) is ¥15,000, but there are cheaper menus to choose from.

A classic in Akasaksa, this restaurant offers good quality food and friendly service at a reasonable price. For lunch, there are two menus to choose from: tendon and kakiage (both ¥1,300). The restaurant is very small (only 20 seats), you can either sit at the counter or a table.

Tempura Tsunahachi

The main store is in Shinjuku sanchome, a few minutes from the station. This area is surrounded by small bars and is walking distance to famous Golden Gai (the tiny alley with tinier bars). So before a night of heavy drinking, you might want to fill up on something consistent. Although, the restaurant has a very elegant feel, tempura sets are around ¥2,484-¥5,400. If you want good tempura at a reasonable price, this place is the place to go. You get a series of different dishes to try.
