unique tempura restaurant in Tokyo? in Japan: Dining Posted November 20, 2007 · Edited November 20, 2007 by kazuo (log) MJS:I don't know the place you've described, but here are a couple of options (all in the "piece by piece, cook to order" vein): Hayashi 03-3241-5367: small shop, one seating only, located in Nihonbashi and hard to find (I still get lost), you eat what the master deems best Yamazato 03-3582-0111: has the advantage of being located in the Hotel Okura, so finding it is no problem, ask specifically for the tempura counter, if you order a set, the chefs will show you what they're going to serve and you can substitute items that you dislikeThere are also a couple of chains with many shops throughout Tokyo, Tsunahachi being the lower budget place and Ten'ichi being the more upscale. Well executed tempura is generally a bit of a luxury, expect to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of 15,000-20,000 yen (more if you opt for Hayashi) per person. I'm sure you know this already, but if you're going to a shop that you've not been to before, you may want to request that they fax a map to your office/hotel. Have fun.
