We ordered two normal size sets and felt too much. Very delicious and highly recommend to all. Always have a long queue in the weekend.

I ordered the extra large size unagi one and got really stunned when they brought me the food. The bowl was huge!!! But since the food was so delicious I ate it all. That was the best unagi in years. Worth the visit, anytime.

We arrived at 11.20am and we were informed that the waiting time was 1 hour (it turned out to be 1 hour 15 minutes). The restaurant opens at 11.30am and those who came at... More

After a morning of sightseeing, our Japanese acquaintances thought we might enjoy this restaurant because it is one of their favorites, and they were absolutely right. I have never eaten eel and was not sure what to expect, but it was absolutely delicious. My teen son thoroughly enjoyed his meal as well. There is a certain way to eat your... More

It seems a japanese angel descended upon earth and decided to reside in the kitchen of this restaurant. Partaking in the simple pleasures that us humans enjoy so as to introduce what heavenly cuisine may await those worthy of it.
