Located at Suntec City Tower 1, Eat at Seven, #03-310/311!
Q for 40mins to get a table and given a choice I would do it all over again! Ordered their Signature KOHAKU Tendon (Vegetables, Chicken, Prawn & Other Seafood) for only SGD $15++. Very big portion bowl and it’s so super awesome! Everything was so good, even the corn, long beans, etc! They were freshly deep fried too! We sat at the bar counter which we could see the entire process.. the Chef treat each bowl with pride and an art, he would patiently stack these ingredients on the rice! This is why I love Japanese restaurant and their attitude! @kohakutendon #hungryunicornsg #kohaku #letsmoreenjoytendon #tendonkohaku #kohakutendon #tendonkohakusg

FINALLY TRIED THIS AFTER HEARING SO MUCH ABOUT IT!! Loved the rice and tempura and yes mushrooms of course hahaha! Pretty worth it for such a generous serving as well! Definitely gonna come back often to satisfy my cravings hehehe! 8.5/10😍👍🏻

Very filling, I couldn't even finish my rice. Tried my luck with the spicy version and it was surprisingly milder than I remembered.

Comes with yuzu-flavoured salmon, 2 prawns, and a whole load of mushrooms (yay)! Enjoyed the salmon, tho I wished the yuzu flavour was stronger. It remained moist and flaky and the batter was just right. Can't say the same for the mushrooms though. I love mushrooms, and I like how the different mushrooms give a different mouthfeel but sadly the batter of assorted tempura mushrooms was rather inconsistent - some had a slightly thicker batter, and my bowl of tempura seemed to be greasier and less crisp (some were actually soggy and nope I didn't leave it untouched for too long) than I recall from my last visit here.
Hoping it's just an off day!

Yuzu salmon and mushrooms tendon at $17.50++ 😍 Besides the salmon flavoured with yuzu, there’s also 2 prawns, a Japanese green pepper and SIX different kinds of mushrooms, like oyster, shiitake, enoki and a special flowery one that’s my favourite! Too bad the spicy version had toned down considerably, but you can still help yourself to the chilli powder (and tendon sauce!) at the side 😁
In general, we could only detect one mouthful with yuzu flavour, so more yuzu please! If only the big juicy prawns also came with yuzu flavour 😋The enoki mushrooms was the greasiest, so I didn’t really enjoy that, but the portion is so generous we find it really hard to finish one bowl by ourselves 😅
Here’s some tips to avoid the perpetual queue:
1) Mondays are better than Fridays
2) 1:30pm or after 6pm is the best on weekdays
We queued for 40min outside the restaurant and waited another 20min for the food to be served. Nonetheless, this remains my favourite tempura place in Singapore! If only they can do a poached egg 🤤

Albeit a long queue, totally worth it. Bumped into an old friend too, while waiting. #burpple #tingzieeats

"Salmon with Yuzu Flavour, Prawns x2, 6 kinds of Mushrooms, Japanese Green Pepper" Of course, Kohaku Tendon manages to fit all of that into one bowl. 😋

Available until December, this autumn inspired bowl is definitely one for mushroom lovers! I particularly loved the thick cuts of Erinji mushroom that had a lovely sweet flavour to it. The salmon was also well done and still moist while having a good hit of yuzu to keep the proceedings from being overwhelmed by tempura batter. Another reason to revisit Kohaku, make sure you head down early to avoid the queue! 🏃

This is something worth queuing for. The kohaku original tendon bowl ($14) contains so many pieces of fried pieces of vegetable, chicken breast meat and seafood that I left half of the amount after finishing up the rice. The rice used is of a premium kind, and hence good enough to eat on its own. The chicken breast meat is extremely tender and succulent. The seafood, as usual, did not disappoint as they were fresh and perfectly cooked without being too tough. A wonderful dining experience indeed!

Sometimes it just amazes me how food bring same-same-but-different people together. Even when there's only a limited menu like this at Tendon Kohaku where you have the signature Kohaku Tendon and vegetable Tendon, both in original and spicy versions, the 3 of us ordered different combinations. From left to right: Spicy Kohaku Tendon with 16 multi grains + nanatsuboshi Hokkaido rice, Original Kohaku Tendon with 16 multi grains + nanatsuboshi Hokkaido rice and Original Kohaku Tendon with nanatsuboshi Hokkaido rice.

I have always been curious about the long queue but ever since trying this after a 40-min wait, I was pretty impressed by this tendon. For $15++, you get 10 pieces of tempura that include prawns, squid, chicken, baby corn, portobello mushroom, pumpkin, long beans. Seated at the bar counter, I witnessed how each bowl of Tendon was carefully prepared, how the ingredients were meticulously dipped into the batter before frying and how professionally the tempura were placed before drizzling the sauce.

The tempura batter felt greaseless yet retained the crispiness. What surprised us the most was the chicken breast that we thought would be hard and dry, turned out to be moist and tender. As a seafood lover, I enjoyed the succulent prawns and squid the most. But I would have preferred if they added more of the sweet savory brown sauce to the rice as it was quite dry at the bottom. I am glad I chose the original version as the spicy one was really spicy for me!

Before leaving, we had a closer look at the 16 multi grains placed at the counter, attempting to identify those we ate in our bowls. But the staff explained that they were all mixed thoroughly, especially with the white rice, and it wasn't possible for us to find all 16 types.

Delicious tendon bowl! Limited choices for the menu, but it is worth a try

Need no intro! One of the best tendon in Singapore. Still queuing after opening for so many months.

Love their spicy version. Tried the Tanjong Pagar one too and this is still no. 1 on my list! TG no. 2! Won't go wrong with any of these two.

And still I can't understand why they're hailed as possibly the best tendon spot in town. The batter's as soggy as the first time I tried, even though sitting right at the bar I can see each bowl freshly prepped and dished out quickly. I'm guessing it's a combination of the sauce, piping hot rice, and the extra plate, that kinda gathers all the steam at the same spot and causes the batter to lose its crisp even faster. Can't say I'm right though, just a guess since other tendon places don't really seem to have this problem.
.
The sauces however are undeniably good, the batter not too oily despite its thickness and sogginess, and the Japanese rice perfectly cooked and comforting. I figure the way to get the best of both worlds, is to request for your tempura be served separately on the side.

I ordered the spicy tendon set which comes with a small bowl of udon. Trust me its not spicy at all for S'pore standard unless you belong to the group who don't touch spicy food at all. However the sauce is way too salty and i can't balance off the saltiness as the tempura were drenched with the sauce and some part of the rice also had the sauce. The best tempura is the chicken breast as all other reviewers commented; it was very tender and juicy despite it being fried. The rest were normal. I still prefer Tendon Ginza Itsuki at tanjong pagar though one smell like the fying oil after but the tempura and the onsen egg tasted so fresh and awesome! Its just worth smelling like the frying oil.

2 pieces of tender chicken, 2 king prawns, and a whole assortment of colourful vegetables to balance out the diet...

Had the signature tendon with multi grain rice! Portion was big, worth it for the price. Q for probably around 10 mins before is our turn! The sauce was quite flavourful and the fried items were quite alot. Kind of jelak to my bf towards the end. The spicy flavour one have kick, those who really cant tolerate spicy food pls do not attempt to try hahaha!

Super filling and super good ! Definitely coming here again for another bowl of this heaven
