An intimate six-seat tempura bar, Tatsumi is one of our most popular restaurants and plates up some of the freshest seafood from Tokyo’s famed fish market in a delightfully cozy alcove off of Wadakura’s main dining room.

Seasonal selections delicately prepared by master tempura chefs are served alongside seasonal salt pairings to enhance the natural flavors of the day’s offerings.

Pair your course menu with the special 1-1-1 sake made exclusively for Palace Hotel Tokyo by the famed Hakkaisan brand for the perfect palate cleanser.
