If you’re looking for a fine tempura dining experience during your time in Japan, you’re unlikely to find a better price to quality ratio as in Shintaro. Here you can enjoy all of the tempura favorites done to Michelin star quality (at half the price as in similar joints).
Simplicity is key to their approach, with no seasoning added except salt. This means that the fresh flavors of the ingredients don’t get lost in any loud dipping spaces or superfluous additions. Two chefs man the kitchen — the owner and a young fry cook who he is mentoring to become a future industry great.
Together they serve up unbelievably reasonable lunch sets, and set-course dinners which will give you a full showcase of fine tempura dining without destroying your budget.
