First of all, I should say that I'm Garlicmike's buddy referred to in his review. I think I would echo his sentiments. The food was quite good and enjoyable, although for me there were other Japanese dishes I enjoyed more while we were in Tokyo from a flavor perspective. The whole experience, however, was well worth the visit and the... More

Frankly, our wives didn't like Japanese cuisine at all. My buddy and I decided on a guy's night out and choose to dine here because of the "old Japanese" descriptions we found here on Tripadvisor. If you want to experience the "real deal", try this place. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You sit on cushions on the floor, indulge in... More

We loved the servers dressing in Kimono and local food. We took a risk in ordering eels set and Dojo, which were well-known dishes here. Neither my boyfriend nor I could eat eels! And...beyon...

One of my husband's Japanese co-worker's took us for lunch here. It was great to experience such an old and traditional place to eat. I loved sitting on the floor in a communal eating space. The restaurant is famous for a small eel-like fish called Dojo, and while I'm not a terribly adventurous eater, it was an experience to try.... More

Great and very special experience eating in a very old Japanese restruante . From the atmosphere to the servers dress , to traditional food ( we had baby eels) to outstanding service . And at a great price . This s a must do if in Tokyo.

Great experience in this old japanese old style restaurant, and for a very reasonable price! Located in Asakusa area, it`s the perfect stop after visiting Senso-ji temple. Their speciality are: eels! Little ones, cooked on a special furnace with chives, miso soup with eels ... and eels` bones!!! MIAM!!!

Komagata Dozeu, has been around for more than 200 years, is one of the oldest restaurants in the city. Together with iidaya, are the top old school dozeu restaurants in the city. Very cozy with everyone sitting on the floor in a common room. Food is served on bench wood in between. Customers were relaxed and friendly. People sitting both... More

My driver told us, she even never tried this place, the interior is wonderfull and very famous. So its making me more anxious. The fish like eel, is small, but they ate it with chives. A lot of chives. It cost 1500yen, and it was buttery melt in your mouth. I personally like it and wanting to have more in... More
