Great cozy unagi joint, food is very nice! It’s just 3300 yen for a very good set meal.

Do note they have a 2 hours break between lunch and dinner serving (it was closed between 2.30 and 4.30pm when I was there)


The staffs service was ok but the food is super awesome.


Had a great time trying all the different eel parts. The nihonshuu and sake is great too! Would recommend for the tasy eel dishes and finding out what parts can be eaten! Interior is cosy and staff are friendly.
