A bit pricy for lunch but very nice Unagi

This shop has a designated carpark which is very convenient if you're driving there. If this is your first time then Hitsumabushi is the definite dish of choice. You get grilled unagi (eel) in a large wooden bowl, and they also provide instructions in English how to experiece it in different ways... read more

My wife reserached on famous Nagoya food that we had to try, and we visited this restaurant after our stroll in Atsuta Shrine area. We visited the restaurant about 4;30 pm and to no surprise, a long waiting queue already established. Staff politely informed us of about 30 min waiting time. The restaurant provided a small living room for waiting... More

Had only one night in Nagoya so decided to take the family to sample their most famous dish. We were not actually that hungry, so ended up ordering 2 of the most expensive dinner sets in extra size, which turned out to be more than enough. We had previously sampled Japanese grilled eel in Japanese restaurants in Hong Kong, but... More

This was a fun experience. Don't know if I "get it", what all they hype is about, but it was good food, and it seems to be a place the locals love. It is considered a local specialty, and that's why we came. It sounds like you can have quite a wait without reservations, but we seemed to catch it... More

We wanted to try the grilled eel in Nagoya as it is a local specialty and this restaurant was recommended to us by the lady at the airport tourist office as well as being mentioned in the Lonely Planet. We arrived at 4.30pm just as the restaurant was opening and after looking around the Atsuta Shrine. We were seated straightaway... More

It is suppose to be the most famous food in Nagoya. We went to the Jingu shop and try the standard Hitsumabushi set. However it is disappointing. The grilled eel rice itself is just at a normal standard, you can easily find eel rice that is better than them. Perhaps because I am from Hong Kong and there are lots... More

Located in a beautiful area, so when I got there at 1:45 and was told to wait until 2:45 to get in, I could spend an hour wandering around the shrine grounds to build up an appetite. I was seated at a Japanese style table, (tatami floor and pillow to kneel on) so I felt a little bit awkward regarding... More

Things to note if you plan to visit for lunch. I arrived at the place slightly late and discovered that the restaurant have a preparation break between 1430-1630hrs. Had to wait about an hour outside the place for them to finish up their break and dinner preparations. There is the Atsuta Shrine jus 5mins walk away from the restaurant, the... More
