I was recommended by local to this best tempura place in Fukuoka. Originally we wanted to visit Tenjin's branch but it was closed. When we arrive on a Sunday night, there is quite a long queue and we waited for at least 30-45mins for that....More

Fukuoka is not known for its Tempira, but it is actually very well made here. The flour and batter used is very light and tasty. The oil is carefully removed to leave you with only crunchy fried vegetables. Definatelly a good good restaurant.

The only downside is there is always a long line up. Be prepared to spend at least 45-60 minutes before you get yourself seated. If you are okay with that, you are about to experience a very high quality tempura fast meal. Absolutely great value...More

Followed the recommendations from the group and did not disappoint! It is quite a distance from the city, and will take 30min by taxi. We arrived at 6pm and there are ample seating inside, bar top style. The meals are pre-paid by vending machine, drinks...More
