Very low-key, traditional space, pretty no-frills. The unagi main dishes are the stars. There is also a good selection of sake.

I dare not to go to Japanese restaurants in Paris except 2-3 real good ones, because most are run by Chinese only serving 'sushi' (but away from real sushi from Japanese prospective). However Nodaiwa is definitely exceptional for me and I go there frequently. They do even better job than most eel restaurants in Tokyo, of course their head shop... More

We had lunch here and i have nothing to complain about. Unagi was very very good, not fishy at all!! It was not cheap but definately worth it. 가볼만 해요 장어가 하나도 비리지 않네요 세트로 먹었는데 참치회 3 조각, 절임반찬, 미소시루 나와요. 꼭 새트로 안드셔도 될듯.

I know one should never compare Unagi don in Japan to one in Paris but with this kind of price tag sometimes one must. Nodaiwa is a good restaurant and I often visit myself. Though it is very pricey and you should be aware that the waiting time once you order the food is rather long, sometimes up to 40... More

We came here based on the tripadvisor rating for a lunch. The eel was really fine, but it was the first time I ever ate eel, so I can't know for sure how the quality was. The rest of the food was good, but not extraordinary.

I went several time to this restaurant and the unagi they serve here can't be compared with the common grilled eel you can find around... it's just perfect! I love it.

According to my Japanese friend, this is a well known unaki restaurant even in Tokyo, Japan. I even went there several times and it never disappointed me. All the appetizers are good although the portion is little. The most delicious part is Unaki bento. There are several different size... Ladies, you can pick up the smallest one. Gentlemen, pick up...

This place is the branch of the one in Japan. I am told that eels come from Amsterdam and since I like smoked eels from Holland, thought we would give Unaju a try. Their kimosui soup was quite good but disappointed with the eels. Wasn't fatty and plump. There was no bite and firmness to it. This unfortunately is true... More

We can't make up our mind. Let's start with the positive side: The tea was good, the rice was good, the eel was good quality, some of the other little pieces that came with the menue were also good, service was good - so what is the problem there ? Well, first of all - this restaurant is very expensive... More
