    The tempura here is amazing. This is the only tempura restaurant on the entire West coast. I believe that the only other tempura restaurant in America of similar quality is the only tempura restaurant in New York (Tempura Matsui). Other than these 2 places, tempura of this standard can only be found at the best tempura restaurants in Japan. The batter is perfect. The oil is pure and just the right temperature. The cooking time is just right. The result is the thinnest layer of crispiness, nothing at all like most Americans are used to. The underlying ingredients (whether vegetables, shrimp, scallops, uni) are top quality and perfectly fresh. True, the restaurant is expensive, but to see how perfect (and greaseless) tempura can be, Temura Endo is the place.

    Amazing dempura selection. One and only. Service was awesome. Value is lacking given the price of $240. Little bit old interior and vibe now. But chef’s food was great with excellent service throughout the course.

    Decent tempura, good non-tempura dishes, excellent service, but perhaps not the extraordinary experience expected at this price point. FYI, there is no more a la carte pricing at 9pm, set menus only, cheapest starting at $180 as of September 30, 2023. Parking is free after 6pm in the public lot just up the street.

    Tempura Endo is a very special place. It is quintessential Japanese tempura - light, crisp, and fresh - and not the chewy, heavy fare that is typical of most places. The services is attentive and unfailingly polite. It's a unique dining experience that you will want to repeat often.

    No valet parking. Love the idea of a tempura bar but disappointed with the food and service. Nothing stood out as exceptional except maybe the tempura uni. We paid over $1000 for 3 people and for it not be wonderful was a let down. Service was not warm

    Indulged in a Kyoto-style tempura feast at Tempura Endo in Beverly Hills. 🍤🍃 From corn to uni, every bite was a delight. Highlights included the mouthwatering Amaebi and perfectly crispy shrimp toast. Ended the meal on a sweet note with a mesmerizing Matcha by Tea-Ceremony Style.

    They made us wait for a very long time just checking for the oil to heat up. They should have done this before the guest arrived as there was nothing to look at except for the big chef with the black mask who did not engage with us and only came out to check if the oil was heated and kept going to the back. They forgot to give us one of the course and did not bring it out until we had them bring out the menu and read it to them that the item was on the menu. They kept bringing us other people’s bill to sign. They even followed us to the street to sign someone’s else’s check. The food was pretty good but not something that you could not get somewhere else. It was very expensive. It would have been fine if the service and food matched the price.

    There is no other restaurant in LA quite like Tempura Endo. It is a uniquely wonderful, completely authentic experience in Japanese dining. Every dish is unique and it will redefine your understanding of what tempura is, and can be. I’ve been to both locations (the other in Kyoto) and I can’t wait to go again!

    So, we went here under the impression that the set menus were at least able to serve two people, that was not the case. After a glass of wine and observing the only two other people’s portions in the restaurant we determined that this probably was as not the place for us - especially on empty stomachs - so we left.

    Unlike any tempura you've had elsewhere. If you're a fan of this dish, this is the place to go. The coating is lacy and barely covers the food. And so crunchy. The place to sit is at the bar as the chef hands it over to you the instant it's done so it loses none of its texture. The chef has found ways to even make uni tempura and mozzarella cheese tempura! It's a lot of money here. We ordered the Kiyomizu menu (the middle priced one) and were very stuffed. This is a special occasion restaurant for someone who adores tempura.

    We booked the first seating at the bar. We had an excellent view for the food prep and we were able to converse with the chefs. The food was excellent- a great mix of tempura and non-fried items. We loved grilling the wagu and all the directions on how to enjoy eat bite best (they tell you want condiment to pair). It felt very special and we had such fun. I visited the Kyoto main location and wanted to come to the stateside. It didn’t disappoint!

    Thanksgiving Dinner at Endo in Beverly Hills. Must say it could have been Ginza, Shibuya or any other swank locale in Tokyo. You get the real deal here without paying for plane fare to Japan. Three of us ordered the Kiyomizu Course which was a showcase of refinement, excellence and creativity by the Japanese chefs behind the tempura bar and copper dome. The presentation, timing and attention to detail of each course was perfect as was the outstanding service by the staff upon entering the front door to departing in your car. Our tummies were fully satisfied but not uncomfortably stuffed….:my daughters and I will relish this most enjoyable holiday dining experience. As for my wallet……ouch!!!….but you are in Beverly Hills and rent must be paid!!!

    A very unique dining experience for an omakase tempura feast. Every ingredient was simple but great quality. Highlights were the halibut, tofu, eel, and the dessert potato with vanilla ice cream. Despite the small team, the service was impeccable and warm. Tip: Parking in The Flats neighborhood is the safest and easiest location close to the restaurant.

    I took my girlfriend here, and I was not all too impressed. We chose the most expensive selection, the HIGASHIYAMA Omakase, thinking we will get what we paid for, but I was a little disappointed. What attracted me to come here was the Wagyu Tempura. The photos on yelp and even on their menu shows it. When asked if they serve this, they no longer have it, and they have changed their pre-set fix menu. To me, this is false advertising, if they charge so high, why can’t they at least afford to update the photo on their menu. What they have instead is a 3 paper thin slice of Wagyu, that we have to cook over a hot stone. It was good, but the amount was a tease. Yes it’s true the tempura was probably the lightest and crispiest I’ve ever eaten in my life, but the amount of food offered did not equal to $320 per person. We were only given one piece of shrimp. Other than the tempura batter that was light and non-greasy, I will give them that, but the seafood was mediocre. There was no awe moment for me. The lobster was a little dry, and did not bring the sweet and fresh ocean taste for an expensive restaurant. People who eat fresh seafood knows what I mean. I understand frying might lose the freshness, but they need to figure this out to retain it, by not overcooking. I believe the chef missed this time control. Also the group of patron at the bar was very noisy. I believe they were Indonesian, but was very loud. Just to be fair, it was only one guy in the group was speaking very load in their native language. It totally ruined the ambience, and our enjoyment of our meal. It was very distracting on every bite of my food! I would not recommend coming here. You can get better quality food and ambiance elsewhere with only a quarter of the price. For example, Yama Seafood Market in San Gabriel, you can get Hokkaido Scallops for less than $2 a piece. 🙂

    It’s so good. Don’t try to think it as the other tempura. You will get mind blow if you first try omakase tempura. The environment is quiet. Th food is super good. I like all the fish tempuras and vegetable tempuras. The fish is so fresh and juicy. I don’t even believe that vegetables is dried. However, the sashimi is not as good as the other omakase on the same price level. But, of course, is better than other sushi. The only thing I will consider is parking. A little bit hard to find parking. Advise is Linden Dr have meters parking. And another advise is try cheapest tempura omakase first.
