Ten Yokota Reviews

Ten Yokota Google Average Rating



TLDR: One of the top tempura places in Tokyo, with fantastic crafts, creative combinations, but lower price.
1. The make of tempura is top-tier. The coating is light, crispy but never oily. My top three favorites were Shrimp head, Shiso with icefish, mushroom with shrimp;
2. You can experience both traditional makes but also some creative combinations of ingredients, with a relatively lower price: the course was just ~16000yen, while considering other top-tier tempura would costs nearly double;
3. The chef is handsome, friendly and gentle, and the environment is more chill. He speaks English.
4. The last ten-don is soooo good and you can pick your size from 5 sizes, without extra cost.
1. Hard to get reservations
2. I wish the size of shrimp tempura could be bigger, though I understand the concern of budgets.


Good place for tempura
