A small unagi restaurant recommended by my Japanese friend. It was not crowded when we arrived.

They only serve unagi rice set. With a standard, special or double set. I must say this has to be the best unagi I have ever eaten so far. The unagi melts in the mouth. What I also liked is the very light taste of the sauce. I believe this is the Kanto style unagi where it is steamed before grilling.

The price is on the higher side but it is worth it! Highly recommended!
