Took a friend to lunch as a celebration and found it interesting but pricey for what we had. All was enjoyable but took time due to preparation. Will go again but will use for dinner when spending a little more is expected. For lunch, other options that are not nearly as costly.

My husband and I came here tonight. The food is quite good -- we had sushi, soup, salad, and noodles -- but our server was just awful. We were at the restaurant for almost 2 hours and there was just no reason for this. It was not too busy of a night and we didn't order anything complicated. Please, Tempura... More

We were greeted by the strong odor of fish as the sushi counter is just inside the door. As we made our way to the table, the smell dissipated. Server was friendly and informative, but could have been a bit quicker since there were only a few customers. Conversation level was very loud (poor building acoustics?) and at a table... More

Bento Box is the way to go! A little of everything. Clear soup and ginger dressing salad. Cold Kirin beer to compliment.

I came here with my baby. There was only 1 waitress working on the lunch shift with a packed place.. IT IS NOT THE SERVERS FAULT FOR BEING THE ONLY ONE WORKING. It is strictly managements fault. The rolls were very fresh and the Spicy Mayo was indeed the spiciest I have ever had. The prices for rolls were very... More

My husband and I visited Tempura for our 8 year anniversary and we were not disappointed! We love sushi and Hibachi steak houses and whenever we travel we look for a new one to try.

A nice restaurant for flavorful hibachi. We liked the sushi we sampled, but were unimpressed by the tempura. Service was adequate on an understaffed, busy Sat. night.

We ate here in mid July with a table of 6. The service was excellent. The soup and salad pre meal was good. The entrees took too long and came out one at a time. The entrees themselves were just ok overall. I did enjoy my hibachi steak though. The price was what you would expect at a Japanese steakhouse.
