King of Tempura Bowls

Masaru is tucked away in an alley next to Nakamise Street. Don’t be put off by the line! It is well worth the wait.

Tendon is a bowl of rice with tempura topping. The price of a tempura bowl (tendon) is more than the average tempura shop, but it is well worth it. In the past, Masaru only used the best seafood caught at Tokyo Bay; but nowadays, seafood comes from different prefectures in order to guarantee uniformly high quality in sufficient quantities.  

Masaru’s menu is very simple: they offer only four types of tendon. The most popular dish is Oh-Iri Edomae Tendon (plentifully topped tempura bowl). It is served with one prawn, conger eel, whiting and flathead. If you only fancy prawns, it is best to order Kuruma Ebi Tendon (Japanese tiger prawn tempura bowl). 

Masaru is open only during lunch hours between 11am-2pm. Please be aware that they might close earlier when they are sold out or unable to procure sufficient quality seafood from the fish market on that day. They have high standards! Only food fit for a king is served.

Masaru does not accept reservations so we suggest lining up before opening hours.
