Located near Sensoji Temple around 10 mins walks. The restaurant is for around 10 customer. When you are walking near the restaurant, you will smell the eel grilled. It's better to wait at the restaurant before it's opened. Only 2 menu large or small boxes.

One of the best grilled eel i ever taste. It have english menu (just small of big bowl to select). The restaurant is too small it feel like eating in someone home. This place is very popular many people wait for lunch. the best way to get seat quickly is come at opening time.

We went there after visiting the Asakusa temple. The restaurant was very tiny (only fits ~10 ppl in the table/ bar area, not sure about the private rooms). Despite the long line up outside, the chef was very careful when grilling the eel and making sure the sauce covered each and every piece perfectly. It's definitely a must try in... More

I recommend this restaurant if you want to... More

Pros: delicious grilled eel; waitress speaks English/ English menu; beautiful place. You can choose a small or large box. We shared the large one. And it was enough since we had some sushi in the market before. It comes with a cilantro soup and rice. Its very simple but delicious. This restaurant looks very popular among locals and traditional.

A grilled eel rice set of Yen 1,900 is ordered. Since I select a seat in front of the open kitchen, I can see the whole process of preparing my lunch set. This is the first time I have such a short distance to the kitchen. It is surely a bonus to me in this trip to Tokyo. Frankly speaking,... More
