“Excellent eel, good service. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

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.

“Must try eel set lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

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.....

“Enjoyable traditional restaurant worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

We had a great meal in this restaurant that specialises in eel. Enjoyable sashimi and eel with beers and hot sake. Lots of pointing and smiling worked well. We sat at the table with a well for our feet and the next table was a Japanese family of grandparents, daughter and grandsons - one of whom was doing his maths homework once dinner was cleared. There's a bell on the table to press when you want service. Shoes left at the door so remember your socks. We asked our hotel to book it. Make sure you take Japanese characters for the restaurant name so you find it ok.
