Ayame Reviews

It was around 11pm on a weekday and I was the only customer.
Considering the eel price is around 3,000 yen, the quality and quantity are satisfactory.
I received yuzu radish as a service,
The pickles were also delicious.
The couple seemed to be having fun talking and the atmosphere was good.


You can eat the highest quality eel in Tokyo. The fresh incense is also exquisite! And the price is also reasonable.


(210920) 7-8 minutes walk from Kiyosumi-Shirakawa Station. This area is a temple town, and because it is in the middle of the equinox, there is a constant stream of people visiting graves. “Ayame” is also very busy! ️This restaurant is popular for its delicious and relatively cheap eel dishes.
The husband and wife run the business, and the stubborn Ittetsu father, who is from Fukagawa, continues to bake kabayaki for half a day from morning, even though he is caring for his injured back, and the mother works all day, from serving the customers to the counter. Well, sometimes I get in a bad mood. I hope the customers understand this too. Once you start talking, you will find that they are a wonderful couple with a tasteful Edo style.
The sauce is sweet but slightly spicy, and the grilled meat is fluffy. This unagiju is irresistible.
