Hands down, hand on heart the bestest best unagi I have ever had. So yummy! Perfectly seasoned and grilled to a slight crisp. Do yourself a favour and order at least 4 pieces. There is no difference between the different options for the unagi. Either...More

Absolutely delicious, for someone who doesnt really like unagi. They have unagi sets or unagi donbori for order. For 1st timer, sharing one set and one donbori is good choice. Go in between meal times to avoid long queues. Restaurant is easy to find and...More

I’ve been around parts of japan eating unagi and this version is really quite good though I still prefer Nagoya’s unagi. Thin slices of unagi grilled with a slightly charred taste, sauce is separate so it’s not too sweet. Though the rice doesn’t have the...More

After our unagi meals in Nagoya and Yanagawa, we were hoping this restaurant would be a climax of fine tastes. Indeed we found it so. We ordered rice with three pieces of unagi, and eel chazuke, and loved it. The grilled eel had a good...More

Looks rather traditional but so friendly and warm. Simple menu with wonderful options. The eel is amazing ! Complimentary sencha tea and hot towels... along with plenty of sake and plum wine. Last orders are rigid.

Hi, I don't think they accept booking as everybody queue up for their seats... Not sure if they accept credit card as I paid cash.
