Excellent quality of food (the best unagi, I ever have),

Staff Not friendly but polite ( auntie who is owner is very Japanese manner, however more friendly when we are polite in her shop ),

Shop is very small ( only two tables ), look messy with decoration but clean and no smell, feel cold with natural wind ( like thai wooden house ),

Strongly recommend to anyone who like to have a true Japanese unagi.
