Tempura goes “high-end” at this Murray Hill Japanese presenting omakase menus starring “deliciously delicate” battered seafood and vegetables, along with small plates such as sashimi, presented in “a lovely progression” by “gracious” servers; “expensive” tabs match the “elegant” (albeit “small” ) space featuring a chef’s counter and booths.

Absolutely beautiful setting. Very helpful and enthusiastic staff. Lunch is a bargain considering the caliber of food and service, though we've never hesitated to take a dinner reservation if no lunch is available. Every time we're in NYC we shape our schedule around availability at Tempura Matsui!

If you have the chance stop by for their lunch. The menu is great and you do get a lot of food. If you make a reservation try to make it for the bar so you can see the chefs cooking up your food.

I dined here on two separate occasions with my family and friends. Staff were very consistent both times with attention paid to our dietary restrictions. The tempura was very reminiscent of what we've had in Tokyo with batter that is thin and light. We will definitely be back for more.
