Tempura Endo is a restaurant providing Kyoto-style tempura located close to Rodeo Drive, the high-class shopping street of Beverly Hills. This is the first overseas location of the long-established tempura restaurant by the same name with nine locations around Kyoto, opening its doors in 2015. A look through the restaurant’s glass show window reveals decorations reminiscent of a Japanese garden. As soon as you step through the store curtain hanging in the entrance, you will feel as if you have stepped into Japan. The interior resembles a Japanese home and the walls are adorned with decorations such as handheld fans and tea cups for use in tea ceremonies. Much of the bamboo and hinoki cypress wood used here is said to have been brought in straight from Japan.

The restaurant includes a counter-seating area with eight seats where customers can watch the chef frying tempura while they eat. There are also four tables as well as a private room which can seat up to eight customers. The seafood used for tempura here is naturally brought in from Japan, and much of the oil, flour, salt and other ingredients come from Japan as well. Customers can enjoy seasonal ingredients for every season. The restaurant is very particular about the oil used for frying their tempura as well and they have three different carefully selected varieties of oil. They mainly make use of cottonseed oil, which is slow to oxidize even when exposed to flame. Their tempura flour is also made with chilled hard water with a touch of white wine for flavor.

The menu here includes three “Chef’s Omakase” course meals for $150, $200, and $280. All courses include an appetizer and salad along with seafood and vegetable tempura, as well as rice and dessert. The $200 and $280 course meals include palate-cleansing sashimi dishes and matcha green tea after the meal. Customers can also enjoy Japanese sake and wine which pairs well with tempura. Tempura Endo is the perfect location to enjoy the best tempura available in an authentic Japanese environment.
