A nice place with sunken tables and a friendly staff. The price is right and the food is good. Try the eel dishes popular in this area.

We ended up here through trip advisor and we didn't regret it. Good food (check out the eel) in a nice atmosphere. Sit on the ground with typical Japanese music on the back ground. You could say authentic with a modern twist.

We chose to have lunch at Edogawa because of all of the positive comments made by so many contributors, and as soon as we were seated understood why it has been rated it so highly.

We came to the restaurant because it was the best rated in nara. The eel was no as special as expected and the rest is like a common menu in japan. I would recommwnd other restaurants.

You won't be disappointed, eel was delicious, and ambiance was a flashback to what one would have experienced even a few hundred years ago, with traditional Japanese seating, sliding doors, and music. If in Nara for two nights, would highly recommend this as one of the dinner choices. Was great with young kids.

I celebrated my girlfriend’s birthday here, and both of us ordered the famous eel meal. The pirce of my meal there with my girlfriend worked out to be around 5,000 Yen for the both of us.

We went to this restaurant based off of reviews and were not disappointed. Originally a bit put off because there was only one other group there. However it had great food, presentation, and environment. The staff had minimal English but this was not a barrier due to English menus. Price was 75USD for 3 people.

Based on Tripadvsier reviews, decided to give this restaurant a try being a bit more upmarket than and specialising in eel. Formal Japanese seating in traditional environment Had good choice of set lunch. Would recommend to those who want to try the eel in formal, traditional settings. Don't forget to remove slippers (provided), when sitting down to your table.....

Located at the end of a shopping district, this restaurant offers affordable and nice food in a traditional Japanese restaurant. It offers dishes with eel and other Japanese food. Highly recommended..
