According to Tempura Makino, it is known for serving "premium quality tempura at affordable prices".

It added that the chain offers 'Tsudoage"-style tempura which is usually priced "much higher". This style of tempura is made to order and served one by one.

Its outlets in Singapore will also import and utilise the same flour, dashi and dipping sauce used in Japan to achieve the same light batter.

Here's what's available:
