Tempura Kondo Description

Tempura Kondo is one of the top tempura restaurants in Tokyo, known for its exceptional tempura and Japanese cuisine. The basic course offers a delightful selection of nine different ingredients, including options like kakiage tendon, tencha, or kakiage with a side of rice. Each ingredient is meticulously coated in a thin, light tempura batter and expertly deep-fried, with precise timing to ensure a perfect crispness. Diners are treated to a pair of each ingredient, allowing them to savor different flavors by choosing between tempura sauce with grated radish and salt with lemon.
The food at Tempura Kondo is characterized by its freshness and cleanliness, with a thin and light tempura coating that's not greasy in the slightest. The tendon with sweet sauce is particularly tasty.
What sets this restaurant apart is its outstanding vegetable tempura, where the sweet potato tempura stands out as crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The seafood ingredients are fresh and meticulously prepared before being fried. The Anago (conger eel) is a standout with perfect frying temperature.
Tempura Kondo offers an exceptional tempura course that's among the best you'll find in Tokyo. The ala carte clam tempura is highly recommended. The staff works in harmony with the chef, ensuring that all food is incredibly fresh, and nothing is prepped in advance. The attentive service includes English-speaking staff to assist you. If you're seeking top-quality tempura in Tokyo, this restaurant should be at the top of your list.

Best tempura meal I've ever had! Really fresh seafood and perfectly cooked veggies. Ended the meal with a kakiage ten don.


Original techniques invented by owner chef makes for a traditional yet playful meal experience. Especially noteworthy is the carrot tempura at the end, its a thing of beauty and unexpectedly sweet.


Possibly the best tempura i have ever had - the lightness of the batter and the attention to every detail is amazing.
