Excellent Japanese food. I normally go to ichiban but wanted to try somewhere new. The salmon teriyaki bento box was excellent. Would happily eat here again.

I come here regularly for lunch, with friends and family. Their salmon sashimi is always fresh, their spider maki the best I have tasted. Yaki soba is also one of my favourites. My daughter loves the Bento box.I tried th eel with teryaki sauce today, which was delicious (Unagi Kabayaki). Good Miso soup, good alaskan maki and there's 20% off... More

I have been a regular customer of this place for ten years both as an eat-in and takeaway customer and couldn't praise it enough in the past. I considered it one of the best Japanese eateries in the UK. Sadly I have to review this opinion now especially after last night's experience. There has been a noticeable reduction in portion...

We have been there 3 times now. Tasty eel rice and assorted sashimi on rice. Maybe the sauces were a bit over-the-top sometimes (very sweet layer of sauce for the katsudon) but still very much worth going!

We like this sushi and noodle bar. The bento box always goes down well with me as does the chefs Nigiri mixture 10 pieces. The noodle dishes are very filling and I love the Japanese beer.

Over the last few years we have been quite regularly to Tenkaichi and the food and service have always been brilliant. The last two visits, both in January, have not been as good. The sushi is usually perfectly presented, and with perfect service. The service is not as good as expected, the staff do not seem very attentive. The food... More

Awful food, chicken was so dry that I couldn't eat it. Dumplings were also dry and can not have been freshly cooked. The noodles were slightly better.

I am not an expert on Japanese food so won't comment on its authenticity, however all five of our party expressed their pleasure at what they had ordered. The service was swift, if perfunctory. The atmosphere is non-existent as this really is a place to come to fill up rather than to dine out. However the best bit comes with... More

As a huge fan of Japanese food I was excited to try Tenkaichi and wasn't disappointed. The food was great and reasonably priced, we particularly enjoyed the Philadelphia Maki and veg gyozas. Staff were also very friendly and efficient. All in all a great experience!

I haven't been here for a while;but I remembered having a lovely meal here a while back. I recommended it to my family last week and we went for dinner. I don't know if ownership has changed;but the food certainly has,I ordered the same meal that I really enjoyed on my last visit,sadly it lacked flavor and was lukewarm. My... More
