24-1 Ebiya-cho, Gokomachi Sanjo-Sagaru, Nakagyo-ku


One of the top restaurants in Kyoto for tempura, Tenyu has a 20-seat dining area that serves light tempura made with cottonseed oil, which results in less greasy dishes. The best way to dine at Tenyu is to order the tempura set menu, so you can try an array of dishes (miso soup, rice, small appetizers) and several varieties of tempura, depending on what’s fresh that day. One of the more expensive tasting menus has uni tempura, which is a highlight for foodies who like sea urchin.
