This place seems to be good at cooking eel as there are many eel dishes. However, I’m not a big fan of it, so I ordered tempura set which contains shrimp, bell pepper, sweet potato and fish tempura. The fish was the most outstanding for me as it was tender. The taste is average, price is quite affordable compared to other stores, especially for dinner in Roppongi. There is English menu available.


I’m a fan of eel :)) this one was quite good quality and valuable price. Also the tonkatsu was very good taste as well. The auntie staff are so supportive for overseas people. There is an English menu, please try if you near by


In the middle of Tokyo's Roppongi district is this gem of a place. Not expensive but very good food at a very low price. It's like home cooking but Japanese. We had three plates and sake for about $35.00. but you have to use GPS and ultimately ask someone to help you find the place. It's in one of those places where there's several stores all in one area so you have to read the signs and you'll find it.
