The restaurant is situated in a small alley in Shinjuku 7-Chome.
Tenhide is currently run by Hiroki Ishinabe, a second-generation chef. The history and tradition of this restaurant dates way back to the Meiji era (1868-1912). The original store started as a food stall under the name Tempura-no-Kenchan. The first in-door restaurant was known as Tenkane. Kenkichi Ishinabe, the great grandfather of Hiroki, established a foothold in this business in 1903. Hiroki’s father worked at Tenkane until he became independent and opened Tenhide in 1989. Hiroki took over the business in 2014. The two restaurants – Tenkane and Tenhide – continue to preserve the classic techniques of Edomae style tempura. For those that are interested, Tenkane is located on the first floor of Odakyu Halc in Shinjuku.
A modest exterior belies the elegant interior with its calm and soothing ambience. There are 6 counter seats and a horigotatsu (Japanese style sunken floor seating). The horigotatsu, with a capacity of 16 people, allows diners to sit comfortably in a tatami room.
If you plan on visiting during lunch hours, try their tendon, a bowl of rice topped with four types of vegetables, one prawn, and seasonal fish. The tendon set comes with miso soup, pickles, and dessert. For dinner, only three courses – A, B and Omakase – are available. Select a course according to your budget and preference. Course A, for instance, comes with a seasonal appetizer, sashimi, 8 pieces of tempura, and a dessert to finish your meal. Tempura pieces, which are the best available ingredients of the day, are purchased from Tsukiji Fish Market every morning. Dishes are deep-fried in a sesame oil blended with salad oil. This combination enhances the flavor of the ingredients.
The restaurant can be used for a variety of purposes such as entertaining business clients, celebrations, or family gatherings with small children.
