These are the best places to have tempura in Fukuoka, no matter your budget!

Feel free to follow favy!

Tenkou 天冨良 天孝

This 2-star Michelin restaurant is a local favourite in Fukuoka, and some only swear by this restaurant for tempura. Dinner is slightly expensive (between 7,000- 12,000 yen), but it is worth every penny in terms of quality. If you'd like to sample their incredible tempura, you can stop by for a reasonably-priced lunch (between 2,100-5,000 yen). The batter is light and delicious, as soon as you bite into it, the umami will entice your tastebuds.

Kajiten てんぷら割烹 かじ天

In the low-range category, this restaurant serves tasty seasonal fish and vegetables. Even if you are by yourself, this restaurant is not intimidating to go in alone. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality as most meals are only about 1,000 yen. You get sashimi, tempura, miso soup and small appetizers. For a quick and tasty lunch, it's definitely the place to stop by!


Takeuchi has been featured in Michelin's Bib Gourmand, which means it's a great, yet reasonably-priced restaurant. The quality is incredible, yet lunch and dinner is only about 3,000-5,000 yen.
Like a lot of Bib Gourmand featured restaurant, a reservation is required.

Naniwa Sushi 鮨なにわ

Sushi Naniwa serves incredibly fresh fish that comes directly from the fisherman. Seeing how this place is mostly frequented by locals, you know it's authentic and delicious. At this family-run restaurant, the staff speak English and are very helpful. The quality is unbeatable and excellent!

Chikae Fukuoka 稚加榮 福岡店

Chikae is possibly the best choice in the mid-price range category. The interior is simple, yet stunningly beautiful and comfortable with its warm lighting, wooden traditional design, and literally a pond with fish jumping at the very centre of the room of the first floor. You won't want to leave once you get there. It's the ideal place to have a Japanese feast and have a few drinks of sake in good company. For the food, you should try a seasonal course of "kaiseki ryori". This is a traditional meal which is served in a many small portions. You do not get only sushi and sashimi but also all kinds of delicate appetizers. Also, the seasonal courses include the "ikizukuri" type of presentation, which means that the fish is presented in its original form. Seasonal courses start at ¥5,000. For lunch, there are some reasonably-priced options that will cost you around ¥2,000.
