Once in a while, I crave japanese food so when we were in megamall, we tried Tenya and I got the set (picture above), it was good and very filling. 127836127844 I also got to try their appetizer cheese with nori, yum!128523 and the panda-like sweet bread with chocolate filling. 128060127838128523128523

I got All Star Teishoku (365PHp) which includes a basket of assorted tempura (squid, salmon, prawn, etc.), cup of rice, miso soup and potato salad.

We liked it, I mean it's not bad for the price and the taste was good as well.

A casual dining tempura restaurant. Lightly battered deep fried goodies. Started of with the appetizer sampler which had small for sharing servings of potato salad, agedashi tofu, isobe cheese and chicken karaage. Everything was good but the isobe is what stood out. Be sure to try that if you like cheese. For the main Asakusa Special Tempura Basket which had 3 black giant prawns, 2 green beans and a small kakiage. The winner is the size of the prawns and light batter that it was covered. Do not eat here if you want an all shrimp tempura basket because they don't have any of those. Price is relative to serving size. If you want more try an eat all you can spot. Tenya definitely has a better quality tempura though.

Late dinner tonight. I treated myself to an old favorite - tempura! Since I was bummed the Macbook sale was sold out, I decided I'd eat a proper meal na lang.

Tendon (short for tenpura donburi, meaning in a bowl) is their specialty here. I decided to try the Asakusa special tempura teishoku (P430). It has 3 tiger prawns and beans plus the whole set of miso soup, rice, and potato salad. I also ordered the orange lime smoothie (P180). I originally wanted the iced lemon tea pero Sola lang pala. The smoothie is surprisingly good. I like the sweet and creamy + tangy flavor. It almost tastes like it has yogurt.

The miso soup is extra hot! Looove it! Tempura dip lacks that sweet tinge I am used to. But it's still good. With fresh radish and ginger. Potato salad looks like an ice cream scoop. Yummy too. I'm a bit on the fence with the tempura coz I like the coating super crunchy and the dip a bit sweet. Just not my preference, I guess.

It's still a good dining experience for me. Servers were very attentive and accommodating. Nice place coz not too crowded on a Thursday evening. Good for solo diners like me.

Late post.

Had our super late lunch here. My friend craves for something Japanese, hence, we dined here!

I normally don't eat seafoods because of my allergies. But because my doctor forced me to eat sometimes for "immunity" so I tried. Hehe.

I love this meal overall! My friend's strawberry shake was highly recommended according to him. Need to mention that I really loved their miso soup - really good!

Fair service.

We settled at Tenya last friday.my 1st visit in this place.I suggested to order their Ooedo sets, the one we have is actually for 4 pax for only P895 (we are just 3). The set has 4 cups of rice, basket of tempura (shrimps, eggplant, fish & other veggies), 4 small bowls of miso soup. The resto has house tea, which I prefer to order. We also had, Spicy Salmon Salad, which is recommended by the server. And we love it! the crunch all over the salmon is so good and love the spicy taste.

Nothing spectacular in the tempura set we got, but I find it cheaper than other resto. Servers are cheerful and attentive.

"Table for 2", thats the first thing I said to the service crew when we entered #TenyaPh Megamall branch. Tenya's Staff and Crew are very accommodating and provided good service. They offer and served us complimentary Green Tea when we were seated. Aside from that we really had a great time and tasted the food for FREE. 127844127862127831 Thanks for the GCs @carinacastle and @tenyaph 128536128515

After a long long long long long while, I indulged myself to some tempura (plus extra rice). I can't think straight right after. I'm still floating. Diagnosis: food coma. ;D

I've been a fan of tempura eversince i was a kid. I guess for me the tempura was the 1st japanese food i learned to eat as a kid. So when my friend told me she wanted to try this new tempura place, i immediately said Yes!

So all the food here are cooked using tempura crumbs/style. So expect it to be all fried and oily. Although i noticed the oil wasn't dripping so much unlike other tempura i have tried which was a plus points.

I ordered the classic tempura basket which didn't include rice (tempura is better to be eaten with rice but i was on a diet due to the holiday feasting/eating) although it was a good thing i didn't order the set/donburi as the basket itself was already enough. We also ordered the Isoba cheese for sharing as our appetizer / sides.

The classic tempura basket was composed of 1 tiger prawn, 1 kiso (fish fillet), 1 small kakiage (mixed of shrimp, celery and onion slices), 1 squid, 1 sweet potato slice and 2 string of beas. Food didn't taste too oily or fishy. The basket also includes a tempura sauce which you have an option to decide on how much shredded raddish and ginger you'd like to put. The sauce was also refillable without a fee. On the table, they also have another tempura sauce but mostly used for donburi (the rice topping ones). The one for donburi has a stronger taste.

The isoba cheese was cheddar cheese wrapped with nori/seaweed and deep fried with tempura crumbs. It was actually like cheese sticks but in squares. It was delicious, melted and oozing out as you bite on it. Better to eat it while its hot and it compliments well with the mayo served with it. It also wasn't salty so you won't feel umay even if you eat 2 or 3 of it.

Even though the rice is limited and the prawns are expensive, the special sauce is amazing at bringing the tempura to its best form and brings out the soul of the prawns.

Good place if you want to eat tempura. Price reasonable and the taste is good. It serves tempura the way do it in Japan. The tempura sauce is soy flavored which is different from most Japanese restos where the sauce has a sweet gingery taste. The size of the tiger prawns are ok and is not to breaded. I also like the agedashi tofu. It was tender yet firm. The sauce was a combination of sweet salty and gingerlike went well with the tofu. The place is worth a try.

I wanted to try Ooma the first week it opened but the line was just so long and the receptionist wasn't present so it was just so chaotic! I was really hungry so I just walked away. Good thing though because I had a chance to try Tenya!

I'm still on the hunt for the tempura that's closest to what I had in Osaka. Not the best tempura, but pwede na. 9786️ Maybe they should change the rice too, as I like mine a bit more malagkit than the usual. 128517

The staff are really nice and courteous, and won't make you feel uneasy when dining alone. 128514

i ordered all star set with cold soba, for my son is asakusa set also with cold soba.
the tempuras are all perfectly cooked, crunchy and juicy, the sauces is spot on, cold soba is refreshing, everything taste good. the only thing i didn't like is, "bitin" sa rice at sa soba hehe, pricey so i hope unlimited na lang yung rice, and be more generous for the soba.

servers are very accommodating and friendly, even play & baby talks ;) with my 1yr old son so i can eat well. kudos for that!

overall:

Experience Authentic Japanese Tempura at Tenya Asakusa Tokyo.

I've been hearing a lot of this place and went here with mom last September 4, it's my birthday lunch treat for my mama Elaine P 127880127881

Just like mom, I love also Japanese food. Mom was a shrimp tempura addict, she will never get tired eating it. So when I learned about this place, I know this is the perfect place to treat her on her special day since they are specialized on tempura.

It was a weekday so I decided to go there early coz mom needs to go back at the ofc after lunch. Sharp 10am I got there and reserve a seat for two. Glad mom wasn't there yet so I talked to one of the staff to reserve my chosen seat coz I have to buy birthday candles first.

Went back to Tenya after buying candles and gave it to their staff and glad mom wasn't there yet, she arrived after I gave the candles so she have no idea about my surprise.

We waited for 15 to 20 mins and it's worth the wait. The Asakusa Special Tempura Teishoku is infront of us. It consist of 3prawns, small kakiage, greenbeans, mash potatoes, rice,soup for only 400. It's a complete Japanese meal. Everything was so good. Mom was really happy. Then drinks is not included so we order softdrinks in can around 60 pesos and requested a glass with ice.

After we finished our meal, I gave the go signal to their staff. This is the main reason why I chose Tenya for moms bday. Two cute Ningyo Yaki Sundae was served. The candles was put on top. I ordered both flavors , Nutella and Dulce de Leche. It was laid on a thick scoop of vanilla ice cream and sprinkled with caramel popcorn and topped with cute bear on top. This cute sundae cost 125 pesos only. It's so cute to eat.

Good authentic Japanese food, price is justifiable , I love how they present the food especially the tempura was placed on a cute basket and of course this cute Ningyo Yaki sundae. Staffs were so accommodating , they sang bday song for mom when they served the Ningyo Yaki Sundae.

They are located at the 4th level of SM Megamall. Come early because they were full on lunch time and dinner.
