Unagi Edoichi Reviews

Unagi Edoichi Google Average Rating



Unagi kimo (eel liver) is amazingly good! Sweet sauce that is also slightly bitter because it has been grilled mixed with a rich liver taste. If you make a reservation, let them know you plan on ordering the kimo. The unagi is soft and tasty and worth going to this slightly out of the way place.


Very delicious UNAGI (eel) restaurant in Tokyo area. I tried KIMO YAKI (well liver) and extra Large size of UNAJYU (eel volume is extra large, rice volume is same as other sizes).
The location may not be easy to find but you can walk from ZOSHIGAYA station by SAKURA TRAM.
