5 Sublime High-End Kushiage Restaurants In Tokyo


Kushiage, also called kushikatsu, is a type of Japanese cuisine which consists of battered, deep-fried ingredients on skewers. For some outstanding kushikatsu in Tokyo, try out these restaurants.

Feel free to follow favy!

Kushiage Hayashi 串揚げはやし (Kagurazaka)

Hayashi in Kagurazaka is one of the best high-end kushiage restaurants in Tokyo. The secluded restaurant with just eight counter seats is extremely popular so you are better to make a reservation beforehand.

The ingredients are seasonal and of extremely good quality. You can enjoy some of the best quality cuts of wagyu beef, with beautiful marbling, made into kushiage style. If you're looking to try high-end kushiage in a cozy authentic atmosphere, this is the place! Expect to pay between ¥10,000 and ¥15,000.

Ginza Rokukakutei 銀座 六覺燈 (Ginza)

Ginza Rokukakutei is was a Michelin-starred restaurant that serves some kushiage that are as beautifully presented as high-end sushi. The restaurant uses ingredients that are typically Japanese and also some that are European and Chinese. For about ¥10,000 to ¥15,000, you can have an omakase course, which means that the course is left to the chef who will cook with the best seasonal ingredients. The specialty of the restaurant is also wine, so you can enjoy the perfect pairing with your kushiage.

Rokkakutei Azabujuban Location 六覺燈 麻布十番店 (Azabujuban)

Rokakutei also has a location in Azabujuban with some 20 seats, which is about half the size of the Ginza location. The menu is essentially the same so just go to the one that is most convenient for you.

Nakameguro Iguchi Noboru 中目黒いぐち 上ル (Ebisu)

Iguchi Noboru is a clean-lined modern, Japanese-style restaurant which consists of a large counter from which you can see the chef at work and one 4-seat table. It has an incredibly peaceful zen ambiance! There's a bonzai as the centrepiece decoration behind the counter that is particularly attention drawing!

As for the kushiage, they are little works of art, so carefully prepared and arranged in the chef's own original way. The restaurant is as much a tempura restaurant than it is a kushiage restaurant. The two are similar cuisines but the batter is different and tempura is usually not on skewers.

Kushitei 串亭 (Ebisu)

Kushitei, near Ebisu Station, is the most affordable restaurant on this list, with people paying on average ¥5,000 to ¥6,000. The quality is still excellent and they have some really irresistible types of kushiage such as their popular salmon one with salmon roe and tartar sauce toppings.

The restaurant has some counter seats and some "horigotatsu" seats (Japanese low table with a hole under it for the legs).
