Tempura is a really popular dish in Japan, and since it is beloved among many people, there are numbers of good tempura restaurants just in Asakusa, Tokyo. Check the following places out!

Feel free to follow favy!

Akashi

If you are looking for tempura lunch at a reasonable price, check Akashi out! Their lunch menu is available around ¥1,000~2,000, and you get to try their exquisite tempura. You can see the chefs frying tempura for you, and you are served with freshly fried tempura. You may have to wait in line for a bit, but it is definitely worth the wait. Try to be there early, and you'll be all set! Light, crispy and delicious tempura is a must-try. Their tendon (tempura topped on bowl of rice) is also worth trying too! Just a few minute walk from Tamachi station.

Daikokuya

Their famous menu is Tendon, and Tendon cannot be completed with good tempura. Their tendon is really famous for its huge portion and the amount of tempura topped on rice, and tsuyu (sauce) makes the tempura flavorful and juicy. If you are looking for a place to try tendon or tempura, you should definitely stop by. Just a few minute walk from Asakusa station.

Tentake

One of the oldest tempura restaurants in Asakusa, this place offers exquisite tempura and tendon! Along with their tempura menu, they are really famous for kakiage - a type of tempura where seafood and vegetables are cut into smaller pieces and mixed together, dipped in batter then fried. You should definitely stop by when you are in Asakusa! Less than a 10 minute walk from Asakusa station.

Masaru

Masaru is a tempura restaurant that serves good quality tendon. It is a small restaurant, and it is slightly hidden in the street. A lot of people line up to try their tendon, which tells us how good and popular it is. Their Edomae tendon has huge shrimp, anago, megochi and kisu's tempura on top, which is available at ¥3,700. It may sound expensive than other stores, but it's definitely worth a try because it is a top-notch tendon!
Just be careful with open hours and date because they close as soon as they sell out, and when they were not able to prepare good toppings they are going to be closed. Around a 5 minute walk from Asakusa station.

Nakasei

Established in 1870, Nakasei has been serving delicious tempura for almost 150 years! Their must-try menu is called Raijin-age, shrimp and scallop kakiage, which is available at ¥3,000. It is usually full and people line up to try their Raijin-age, so be sure to be there early! Around a 7 minute walk from Asakusa station.
