Not worth the time to come here. The presentation is only typical of all Japanese sets, but the prices are exorbitantly high (no lunch set is below 1,500 yen. Each slice of eel is around 700 yen or more. When we arrived there were lots of spaces but they made us wait outside for over half an hour. Only when... More

Unagi was so so good! Best unagi I've ever eaten!!! Walked all the way to find this unagi place and no regrets. The place was warm, the food was warm good and it came quick. Love it.

Another gem and a welcome respite at Nara. Just like most Kyoto restaurants, Edogawa offers great service, beautiful Japanese tatami room eating experience and a retreat into its tranquil Japanese garden. My husband and I hunted this restaurant down for its unagi dishes, which were recommended to us. Lucky for us, we arrived just before midday and received prompt and... More

This place is supposedly specialising in eel dishes, but there was nothing special on the food. We ordered a set which consists of eel and shashimi and sukiyaki. They just taste average. Nothing stands out or wow you. The restaurant set-up is nice though (tatami/garden) and I reckon that is the only highlight of this place for us.

Eating in a tatami table is always fun. Prices were fair and food the same. Service was nice as usual in this so respectable country.

Despite the reviews I came off this place as an average restaurant. I had the shashimi and eel set lunch and it was fairly ok. That was it .. if you know what I mean. There is also another outlet at Kintetsu Mall at Kyoto Station if you are so inclined to have a go.

This place was recommended to us at the tourist office in Nara. It's a traditional japanise restaurant, nicely decorated, with a big eating room and small private rooms as well. You need to take off your shoes to enter the venue. They serve Bento box menues for a good value. Don't forget to order Asahi Super Dry beer, which is... More

We had a rice bowl with grilled eel topping, and we liked it a lot, in a nice traditional Japanese style house. It's very easy to find.
