Tempura Yoshikawa

Tominokoji Oike-sagaru kyoto


See Website

Lovers of tempura will have some of the best deep-fried dishes of their life here. The batter is light and perfectly crisp, and it’s served kaiseki-style, meaning you will only have one or two of a particular item that’s spaced out in courses. Reserve a seat at the 10-seat bar to see the maestro at work in this restaurant that’s renowned as the best tempura restaurant in Kyoto. Yoshikawa is a ryokan, or a traditional inn, and its century-old restaurant is perhaps more famous than the inn itself.
