A small restaurant but clearly very popular and a good sign when you see Japanese customers arriving.
We were exhausted after much sightseeing so popped in an ordered sushi to go- they made it to order and the wait was well worth it. Great fish, quality rice - perfect. Next time will eat in and explore the whole menu.

The choices in Barcelona for japanese cuisine are quite wide. From top class as Koy-Shunka or Shunka, to casual ones as Kibuki or Secret Samurai. But Tempura-ya is a top class among those for people with experience in japanese cuisine with controlled budget. One uniqueness among mid-high ones: japanese chef (available only in top ones in Barcelona). Great coocked dishes and a far more than acceptable raw fish. Japanese customers are common (that means something...). My recommendation for up to 40-50€ per person in Barcelona. Within that budget and below you can really enjoy.

The mixed clientele suggested a number of loyal customers who have discovered a lunchtime favourite. No dithering with the menu, plenty of confident ordering. I count my daughter among that crowd as she and her friends make frequent midday visits here.
We let her order and sat back to enjoy a tasty selection from the fixed price half of the menu.
Nori, udon, sashimi, crispy squid and tempura'd veg all were offered and gratefully accepted and all exquisitely prepared.
never one to turn down a sweet, I had the remarkable ( and completely more-ish) Red Bean Ice Cream.
This is my new Barcelona favourite restaurant. But keep to yourself.

I waited until the second time that I visited this place to properly assess it. And it didnt dissapoint for the second time in a row. Original and truly japanese, this place offers a wide range of specialties out of which a bunch arent westernized at all. The service is very good (i love the waiters, always treating me well) and japanese is the predominant nationality.

They also offer three kinds of japanese beers.

Book in advance as its usually fully booked.

P.d: try the grilled salmon with teriyaki sauce.

I'm a sushi lover, and this place didn't disappoint me.

Good gyozas, good rolls, good sashimis, and good nigiris. Rice was on it's point, good flavor, just the way it is. Tempura was a "little" oily, it could be better, but not bad.

Overall 4/5, will be back here on my next trip to Barcelona.
