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.

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

It is a popular restaurant. I arrived there at around 11 am and need to wait for nearly an hour for my seat. They have a large waiting. I have fallen asleep while waiting and the staff wake me up when there is seat for me. They have make a mark on their customer list, so that they communicate with... More
