Best neighborhood sushi, even if its not your neighborhood – I used to live in the neighborhood and waited for months for this place to open, and even after moving away come back here a few times a month. This place is the best neighborhood sushi you will find. Go here for sushi, because while the "Asian" of the "Asian Bistro" is ok, you are here for the fish. Its always fresh and glistening, with very skillful and generous cuts. Rolls are inventive and delicious, and I'd suggest the Montague or Spicy Girl.
The place is unpretentious and very hospitable, the lights and music low and sweet and the waiters attentive and plentiful. You rarely have to wait for more green tea or very long for food. This isn't Yasuda (you'll be able to tell by the portions and prices), but usually when I go to one of those places I have to come here the next day to get that "full, satisfied sushi feeling" that those lack.
The sushi entres usually give you a very nice selection, no room wasted on omelets or shrimp, and if you come here often the chef/owner scores you toro sashimi.
Its rarely very full as it's a popular takeout place (delivery is prompt and presentation is not sacrificed, btw). Wonderful garden in the back in the warmer months, too.
Editorial Review – Cuisines of India, Malaysia, Thailand and Japan come together at this Brooklyn Heights restaurant.
ok food, unwelcoming service – I have been twice now to Tenda and both times have been akward dining experiences. The food is not bad, but I found the service to be rude and incredibly slow. The first time I went I asked for no fish eggs on the sushi and the waiter acted as if that was the hardest thing in the world to do. The food took forever to come- it felt like one of those seinfeld episodes where everyone who arrived after you got served first. I decided to give Tenda another shot, and frankly, I was not impressed. The food was average and the service awful.
Good Food – When I went there the food was really good. the service was ok,they forgot drinks, they got them mixed up,but other than that it was really nice. i would love to go there on a date. i went with family. you should go and try it out. its really good though.
We will never go again – You know any "Pan Asian" restaurant has a jack of all cuisine chef (but expert of none) in the kitchen. Yes people don't know about the food will comment on the "nice atmosphere", which is pretty standard like a new construction. My beef udon was nothing but clear broth, lots of broccoli and 3 thin slices of beef. There was nothing beefy about it at all. It was more like vegetable udon but came with a beef udon price tag. At $10 a pop their margin must be huge given the meager ingredients. The food came very late. They took back the bill to throw on a gratuity charge for our party. There's no problem with gratuity charges when the customer is satisfied with the experience. But we were not happy with it at all. The place was a Montague St tourist trap, just like the Heights cafe. Will never go again.
Good little new Asian Bistro in Brooklyn Heights – Very nice little Asian Bistro with a lovely Garden in the back. Make sure you go through the rather dark restaurant and check out the backyeard.
Service is very friendly (much better than Lantern down the street) and food is rather good. I would certainly recommend this place.
Pretty Good! – Foods are pretty good and fresh. very cozy, but has quite comfortable atmosphere.
I recommend this place.
