Very nice Anago, but a bit pricey

I visited this old established Anago restaurant on weekday for lunch. I arrived there at 1.30pm, but already over 100 people waited. A staff gave a number card, and I waited for 1 hour at waiting room where was next to the restaurant. After that, a staff called my number. We sat a table and ordered... read more

Grilled anago was good. 2 hour wait for a table and loooong line just to get to-go boxes. Final verdict: No great shakes. Not worth the hype. Of course considering the pool of options in the area, it may well have been better than the rest. In my opinion, best to make a day trip of Hiroshima and plan to... More

our family had lunch here after visiting Miyajima Island and even though we had to wait an hour to get seated, it was well worth it. The anago, sea eel, was fantastic!

While eel cuisine was well-known in Miyajima, Ueno was an old restaurant founded in 1901. The broth made from eel bones were used in cooking rice. We queued up for a long time before getting seated. Opening hours 10:00 - 18:30 , not open for dinner Only sells bento on Wed.

This place was highly recommended and well known by locals. It's near the ferry boat harbor that takes visitors to Miyajima. We had a half hour wait but it was well worth it. A bottle of sake went well with anago (Conger eel) bento. If you don't want to wait for a seat, there's a takeout window as well.

Anagomeshi is a specialty around Miyajima, and Ueno makes a perfect version.
