FOOD REVIEW BY WONG

Despite all the raving reviews I've read on the internet about this place, Tengoku Yaki didn't charm my heart and tongue.

Tengoku writes as 天国 in kanji or in Chinese, literally it means heaven and country. Freely translated, it could mean: country of heaven, or realm of heaven.
But I didn't find the food heavenly.

The decorum, the house, the atmosphere are all very pleasant. A mix of Japanese and Chinese style, in fact, even with some Chinese music, but not everyone will notice that.
The food is well presented but it lacks something ... great smell, great texture and sometimes great taste. One feature that makes a Japanese great is fresh and high quality sashimi. You can tell that from taste and especially from smell. But the sashimi served here is rather average. I suspect the source of the fish isn't the best, certainly not the 5 stars that you would expect.

Other dishes are average too: the zaru soba doesn't have a fine texture. The tempura wasn't crocky, the gyoza are the same as the frozen stuff I can heat up myself, and the saba doesn't seduce.

The only fish I didn't have somewhere else was the so-called engawa. The way Tengoku makes it, is by grilling it and serving it as sushi. The meat is tender, but the smell is almost gone.

This is a problem of buying the best ingredients as well as mastery over cooking, which is not top here.

Considering the prices, I expected more quality. Overall, it's a mid-range Japanese with high prices.
