If you are looking for the real tempura with outstanding crispy battered coating that makes the local gourmet patrons completely speechless, go ahead and take the good 8 minute walk to visit Tenhide. The delicious tempura brought directly from the Tsukiji fish market beautifully prepared on a dish has a stunning impression that amazes customers with every aspect. The Edo period way of making the exceptional tempura oil for their specially made tempura blended with sesami and salad oil is traditionally called "ou jime shibori" which brings the flavor of the deep fried even deeper. Once you taste their deep fried seafood with a bit of their special salt, you would realize there is something different compare to the ones you have eaten before in the past. The restaurant is a very quiet place where you will not hear any bustling sound of Shinjuku which makes an outstanding ambience of having the tempuras of the highest quality. The recommendation is the A set course which includes a seasonal appetizer, the fresh raw sashimi, 8 splendid pieces of deep fried, and a refreshing desert to finish your perfect meal.
