Tenyu
This is a tempura dining one should experience while in Japan. The chef will prepare the tempura right in front of you. Listen to the sizzling sound of shrimp, Shiitake mushrooms, and fish amongst other delicious and fresh ingredients being ready to be devoured.

Living outside of Japan, it is difficult to come by high-end tempura restaurants. The way they do tempura in Tenyu is the way tempura is supposed to be served. Light and crispy non-greasy tempura served right after it is taken out of ...morethe hot oil. On the side are condiments that can be used according to taste such as “Tentsuyu,” or dipping sauce for tempura, grated Daikon radish, lemon, salt, and Sansho peppers.

Serving multiple guests at a time, the chef is in sync with his cooking and the customers’ pace of eating. It is a skill like no other, the chef preforms with elegance. Tenyu is produced by Tawaraya ryokan, one of the finest ryokans in Kyoto.

Tenyu is a tempura restaurant produced by a well known and well appraised Tawaraya ryokan (Japanese style hotel). This is a high-end tempura restaurant that would be ideal to go on a special occasion. It will be a special experience to have eating tempura and watching the head chef prepare it right in front of you. The ambiance of the restaurant is quite and elegant. If you get a chance, I recommend this place for a special tempura experience!
Tempura course
1Must Eat !
Tempura course / ¥6,000 ~ ¥10,000 Depending on availability
Courses range in price depending on the amount and type of tempura being served. The type of tempura served changes frequently to match what is in high quality that day. The course will come with appetizers, tempura, Miso soup, choice of a rice dish, and a dessert. Rice dish is served right before the dessert.
Uni tempura
2Must Eat !
Uni tempura / ¥6,000 ~ ¥10,000 Course depending on availability
Small plates will be placed in front of you at the counter. Tempura will be placed on top of the paper lining, absorbing excess oil, as the chef prepares them. If you love Uni, or sea urchins, you are in for a treat! Uni is wrapped in a blanket of seaweed and then fried. If you are a devoted Uni lover, it is a good idea to ask if Uni will be served ahead of time. The availability of ingredients changes, though Tenyu will answer your requests as best as possible.
Ten don (tempura rice bowl)
3Let's Try !
Ten don (tempura rice bowl) / ¥2,376
Ten don, or tempura rice bowl, contains about 7 to 8 different type of tempura on bed of rice. Sweet sauce is already poured on the rice making it very easy to eat. If you are short on time, ordering the Ten don is a great option.
Dessert
4Let's Try !
Dessert / Included in courses
Another happy part of the course meal is the dessert. Eating this apple gelatin dessert is a refreshing way to finish a tempura meal. This cold dessert is just what is required to make an already great meal perfect.
