We arrived for late lunch at around 3pm to avoid the crowd and was ushered immediately to a tatami-styled dining room. The unagi is one of the better ones I ever had but slightly pricey. The eel is fresh and grilled to perfection. We had a sashimi platter too but that was really just average. So go for what they... More

Edogawa is a chain of restaurants specialising in eel dishes. From JR Nara Station, if you make a right turn into the shopping alley, this branch is at the end of the long street. It's opened from 11 am to 10 pm throughout, so we were truly glad when we reached at about 2 pm, famished, to find it still... More

Close to our guesthouse we had lunch in Edogawa Naramachi that specialises in unagi. We had an excellent lunch ofcourse with uniga as well as tempura.

Queuing takes about 30 minutes but the ambience and food is definitely worth the wait. A large set of eel rice and side dishes (cawanmushi and mochi deserts) cost around 1800 yen. Staff speaks basic English and are friendly.

We came here following recommendations on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed, this place is excellent. For the little ones, there is a very good Children menu including mini hamburger steak, sausages, tempura and even a fruit. Our oldest daughter, aged 9, took a classic Japanese menu with sashimi, tempura and vegetables and she almost finished it all: very fresh... More

There is a great tendency to review decent places as 4 or 5 on Trip Advisor because there is nothing between "Average" and "Very Good" - how abput "Good?". This tends to exaggerate the quality of some places. This I believe is one of them. The ambience is pleasant, the staff polite to a fault, the restaurant spotless. The food... More

Our eel was dry and tempura was limp. Sides where good but I felt we paid way to much for the quality we received. Nice building though.

We came here after reading reviews and recommendations online and found the food average. There's nothing special about the eel rice and egg eel rolls. We'd had more delicious eel at other restaurants in Kyoto. Luckily we didn't have to wait when we visited this place on a Friday evening and it was around 6:30 pm. Would we go again?... More

Visited here for dinner the evening I got I to nara, what attracted me to it was how busy it was! Especially when at that time in the evening the surrounding streets were all quiet. I ordered a set meal which included grilled eel over rice, eel omlette, salad, soup, and some weird savory custard thing which I didn't care... More
