Why Go?

The tempura served by chef Hasegawa is some of the lightest and most refreshing you'll ever taste. The batter includes no eggs, and is created with the chef's secret mix of various flours. Although the chef trained for many years at Kyoto's 'Kyoboshi,' one of the most famous and highly-regarded tempura restaurants in the world, he has his own style of cooking, and isn't afraid to experiment with new and non-traditional ingredients. The chef's 'Tencha,' shown below is one of the dishes that is a particular stand-out.

Hasegawa has only been open since 2012, yet has earned quite a reputation, including a Michelin Star. The restaurant is unquestionably one of the best places to eat tempura in Tokyo, so don't miss a chance to visit if you get the chance!


The only item on the menu is the chef's 'Omakase Course,' which costs ¥13,500 and will leave everything up to the chef. Drinks are separate, and can be ordered from a varied menu of beer, wines, sake, and other beverages.

Reservations / Access

Tempura Hasegawa is only open for a few hours during dinner each day. As such, it can be a bit difficult to get a reservation, so plan in advance! See the link below to get help making a reservation if you don't speak Japanese.

The restaurant is located about 3 minutes from Tokyo's Kinshicho Station. The door has a white curtain with a circle drawn on it. If you want to eat some truly outstanding tempura while in Tokyo, check this place out!
I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
