Very nice traditional setting and really friendly service. The waitress even tried to teach us how to say water in Japanese (mizu).

Food is good, nothing too amazing but very good. It did take almost an hour for it to finish. So I appreciate the seriousness they take in making the best food possible.

Overall I like it.


We came here at 6:30 on Wed. It’s easy for us to find a seat, no waiting at all. We are unagi fans. The eel here is freshly grilled. The waiting time is about 40 mins from the time you placed your order till you get your meal. It’s the best unagi don we’ve ever had in our life. It’s not like the heavily sourced eels you had in other places outside JP. It’s very-well balanced. I ordered the 2-layers version and finished all of them. Highly recommended!


A 129 year old store selling some of the best unagi in Tokyo. It has a unique setting inside; with a mix of normal tables (easy on the knees) or traditional Japanese tables. I deducted one star because it’s quite expensive, even for unagi, and they didn’t have draft beer.

Tsukiji Tsukiji Miyagawa Honbu [Unadon ``Ni''] This year's eel finale After completing his training at Fukagawa's eel specialty store ``Miyagawa'', the founder of Sankiri-gashira, Sukenojo Watanabe (20), inherited the name when the store went out of business. 8 years old) built it in 1893...


Translated from Japanese:

I chose the bamboo set from the lunch menu and shared a bottle of beer with my companion. The amount was just right for a woman, and the eel was plump, had a fragrant surface, and had a light taste. The people around me were elderly solo customers...


Translated from Japanese:

I finally visited Mr. Miyagawa, a famous eel restaurant in Tsukiji. I entered the store as soon as it opened at noon. Because it is a restaurant with a long history, there are many customers for business dinners. There are four types of eel, irohani, and the amount of eel increases in order from ``i'' to ``i''.
