This unagi restaurant is just marvellous, the ideal place to experience a traditional and high quality feelgood meal for everyone interested in trying the Japanese way of preparing eel. The Lady that runs the dining room may not be the best in speaking English, she makes an effort to make you feel welcome and tries to communicate with you none the less (using her phone as a translator). Please try to not be loud inside this restaurant, and enjoy your unagi in a serene way to heighten this beautiful experience.


Recommended to reserve a table in advance (via phone call) as the restaurant is small and seats are limited. It was my first time to eat Unajyu in Tokyo, and it was worth it! It’s a cozy warm place and the friendly service. Btw, you can choose the volume of your rice (it’s quite full-filling: I should’ve down-sized it hehe)


It seems pricey (the cheapest option is 3,200 yen), but it's worth it. Tastes good and they've been around for decades. People are wonderful and friendly (although not English language proficient), too.
