3-1 Kagurazaka, Tokyo, , Japan

Tenko is known for two things: its location inside a former, wooden geisha house on a tucked-away side street in Kagurasaka and for having the best tempura in Tokyo. Seating is available at one of the eight counter spots or in the private rooms hidden by sliding shoji-screen doors. There are no menus; servers bring the meal out in traditional sequence: tea, small appetizers, miso soup, and then the tempura (vegetables and seafood dipped in famously light and non-greasy batter), served with rice and dipping sauce.
