Tempura Kusunoki Reviews

Tempura Kusunoki Google Average Rating



This time's photos and reviews are from after we moved to Shikemichi.
When you bite into Kusunoki's tempura, the shrimp, fish, and vegetables release steam from inside, making them juicy and the fish extremely fluffy.
Homemade mullet roe is also delicious.
Although the taste varies slightly depending on the degree of ripening, Kusunoki's mullet roe is delicious in any season.
I also like the general's calm and polite customer service, which doesn't change his attitude depending on the customer.
The atmosphere is good and you can enjoy yourself with peace of mind.
The store after the move was also great.


It took several months to finally get a reservation.
I came to the store with high expectations.
The ingredients will be introduced and a variety of tempura will be served.
The coating is thin and the exquisite way of frying allows you to fully enjoy the goodness of the ingredients.
It doesn't weigh on your stomach and has a refreshing aftertaste.
Even just the tea drinks, there are many specialties, and there are elegant ones that cost nearly 1,500 yen per cup, so you will be satisfied with everything.


Tempura Kusunoki in Nagoya. Although it is a high-class restaurant, the chefs are friendly and talkative without the approachable feeling you get from a typical craftsman. As for the food, they serve a wonderful tempura that can only be described as outstanding. Even if the tempura continues, it is light and not oily, so you can enjoy it till the end. They prepare seasonal ingredients from various regions, so you can fully enjoy the deliciousness of the ingredients. When I went there, the sweetfish was especially delicious.
