Tempura Tendon Tenya – Affordable Japanese Food in Singapore

Tempura Tendon Tenya, a popular restaurant for affordable Japanese food in Singapore, has four locations available, one within Orchard Central shopping mall (181 Orchard Road).

Founded by Yoshio Iwashita in 1989 in Asakusa district of Tokyo, Japan, and in Singapore since October 2020, the chain offers delicious, affordable & authentic Japanese tempura and tendon (rice bowls topped with tempura) meals.

Throughout their history tempura and tendon has been classified as one of the pricier Japanese cuisines due to the skills, techniques, and experience associated with the preparation.

However, since its inception, the restaurant chain, colloquially known as simply “Tenya“, has changed this perception thanks to the introduction of the Auto Fryer.

The computer-controlled Auto Fryer, a special tempura-frying machine, has made it possible to serve tempura & tendon faster (customers typically wait only for 5 minutes before they are served), in greater quantities, and with much cheaper prices, while maintaining the original quality.

In Japanese cuisine, tempura is prepared and consumed in many ways and variations, including as Tempura Soba, Tempura Udon, and Tendon, the last of which is signature range for the restaurant chain.

Tenya’s Signature Tendon is a donburi bowl of lightly battered, crispy seafood, meat and/or vegetable tempura atop steaming premium Japanese Aomori rice with an umami tare glazing sauce drizzled over.
