My dining adventure at Tempura Hirao was nothing short of spectacular!

Firstly, the unique ticket-purchasing system added an air of exclusivity. The menu, brilliantly translated into English, presented a delightful array of set meals, each intriguingly labeled from A to D.We indulged in the fish set and the prawn set, and oh, what a culinary triumph it was! Each bite of the expertly fried fare was a revelation – crispy yet astonishingly devoid of excess oil. The fish's flesh was tender beyond imagination, melting effortlessly in the mouth. The tempura cuttlefish was a new experience for me, and it was an absolute delight.At the heart of this gastronomic temple was the chef, a maestro orchestrating a symphony of flavors.

The waitresses were the epitome of attentive service, seamlessly presenting each dish as soon as it reached its pinnacle of perfection.I am eagerly counting down the moments until I can return to Tempura Hirao to relive this extraordinary epicurean experience before my journey concludes.


I like the energetic vibe from staffs' voice! waited for 45 mins but very worth it! all foods were very delicious👍 I would like to recommend to my friends who visiting Fukuoka soon😄


Excellent tempura! Michelin star quality but at McDonald’s price! Super good value! All locals go to this restaurant and they have another one in Tenjin area! Delicious! Highly recommended! Just go and try!
