Unagi Kawasei Reviews

Unagi Kawasei Google Average Rating



Their unagi was nice and fluffy. Other small tapas dishes are also great. I enjoyed their nuta (tuna with vinegary miso sauce). I got a bit too full after eating all the rice that came in a unagi box.


Good quality Unagi.
Relaxing inside if you come before 12:00.
If you take Tokujo 6,000yen, and waiting time is around 20 - 35mins.


One of best "KABAYAKI" (unagi recipe) with soft and tasty unagi meat and good kabayaki source "TARE"
