Ginza Tendon Itsuki

Japanese in Chinatown & the CBD

Life's few certainties include taxes, death and a queue outside this dedicated tendon (tempura served on rice) eatery. Patience is rewarded with cries of irrashaimase! (welcome) and generous bowls of Japanese comfort grub. Both the tempura and rice are cooked to perfection, drizzled in sweet and sticky soy sauce, and served with chawanmushi (Japanese egg custard), miso soup and pickled vegetables. A cash-only bargain.

Tip: avoid the longest queues by heading in by noon or 7pm.
