I enjoyed the tempura rice bowl with pickles and miso soup. The tempura was perfectly crispy, and the accompaniments added a refreshing touch. The service was attentive, and the restaurant's ambiance was serene. Masaru provides excellent value for a remarkable dining experience. Highly recommended.


Must try No.1 Tempura Tendon if you are around Asakusa🤤.
We used to visit other Tendon place in Asakusa, and this time we looked for something new. We found this place from google map and the restaurant located at the dead end of an alley.
I would say this is the best Tendon we had so far. Very delicious and the seafood were very fresh. When we arrived, we were told that the restaurant only served 1 kind of Tendon which was Seafood Tendon (Â¥3800) and the Miso Soup is an option with additional charge(Â¥200).
The Tendon is expensive than other places nearby but if you looked at what ingredients they were using, the you would know the reason they charge such price.
The restaurant is very small for around 15 seats and only have 2 server and a chef. And they only served lunch starting from 11am until 2.30pm (until the tendon sold out which ever the earliest)
Tips: English menu available. Either go before the restaurant opened or after 1pm to avoid the long queue.


They have two menu. One is this Tendon (Â¥3700) and another is miso soup(Â¥200). Taste was great and the ratio of the sauce and rice was perfect.
Their pickles and tea were delicious too.

One thing I’d like to ask is to serve Miso soup with Tendon lol

However, it would be very nice to take your friends when you are touring Asakusa since this is kind of hidden and it’s fun to go to the place like this.


Translated from Japanese:

I will never forget the shock I felt when I ate it for the first time. Tendon is a unique style of serving rice with a lid that cannot be covered. This year's first review is Tendon. I arrived at the store around 10:15 early in the new year, but there was still no one in line. ...


Translated from Japanese:

I went sightseeing in Asakusa on an unseasonable midsummer day, and the restaurants were all packed with people, so I thought I'd have to be prepared to wait another hour or two at the restaurants that were highly rated on Tabelog. But surprisingly, just two groups made 20...


Translated from Japanese:

Oiri Edomae Tendon...3,800 yen + Miso Soup...200 yen A famous Asakusa restaurant that I've wanted to go to for a long time. The time zone didn't work out for me, or I was overwhelmed by the crowds... ️On this day, I was miraculously able to sneak in and my wish came true...
