Shrimply Tempura: Tenya Tempura Tendon

by - Friday, April 21, 2017

I was craving for katsu or tempura and remembered that I came across this new tempura place around Mall of Asia, so we decided to go for it.




Tenya's ambiance is similar to any Japanese restaurants, except that their chairs are blue and yellow instead of the usual red/ black/ white. I did, however, admired the hanging box-shaped lights and pink and white flowers.

I was torn between their Asakusa Special Tempura Teishoku (which had 3 prawns) and their All Star Tempura Teishoku (which had more varieties). I went with the latter because it was recommended and had salmon :D

All Star Tempura Teishoku P365

 (Prawn, Salmon, Squid, Kani Stick, Green Beans, Mushroom, Kakiage, miso soup, potato salad, a cup of Japanese rice, pickles, radish, tempura sauce)

After ordering, we were served with a cup of their nice tea. Shortly after that, our orders arrived. This gorgeous basket filled with lightly battered food deep fried in canola oil was huge! But, I didn't have a hard time devouring it all (that's right, I'm a warrior) xD Everything was good, although I found it a bit bland lacking in flavor, and the sauce was a little light. Still, I enjoyed having a little bit of everything on my plate. (by the way, the kakiage is like a Japanese flat meatball consisting of shrimp, onions, chopped vegetables).


Tenya surely is a place for those who dream of eating tempura. It prides itself with its famous tempura don, which I have yet to try on my next visit. 

My score:
Pricing – 3.5/5
Service – 3.5/5
 Ambiance – 3.5/5  
Taste – 3.5/5
