“Nice cozy restaurant with good eel ”
A nice cozy restaurant in the Gion district: small pedestrian street, little difficult to find. Downstairs are some tables with chairs, upstairs you sit on the floor. Very simple but really nice surroundings. The eel is really good, it’s worth trying also some of the other smaller dishes, and by all... means I recommend eel liver. Service is extremely efficient and polite.

“Such a disapointing experience, I would recommend not to go there”
What can I say, really disappointed. Had good expectations for a restaurant specialized in Unagi (eel). It ended up average food (really average), expensive for the quality, and the waiter was the worse I had in Japan, criticising clients in front of other clients. Even if you re lucky to avoid the ...bad service experience, price/food is not good. You ll have better Unagi in good sushi places for cheaper.

“Good food in simple but cozy surroundings ”
This is a restaurant for unagi (eel) dishes. It’s in a small street of the old district of Gion. It’s a small simple restaurant, quiet, nice atmosphere, very polite efficient staff. The menu is small but all dishes I tried are really prepared with care! A place I shall certainly return to and can re...commend unreservedly!

“First time to eat eel in Japan”
We went there to have dinner after we visited whole Gion area. This is a Michelin 1 Star restaurant. We loved 2 dishes we ordered. One is the grilled eel on rice for 4 people, and another once is skewered eel. Both dished are extreme delicious. Their price is not cheap, but reasonable.

“Excellent service and great food”
The restaurant service staffs are attentive and friendly, trying hard despite language barrier. The restaurant manager and owner are professional and responsible, even paid the shipping fee to return our missing umbrella expeditiously. It speaks volume about their transition and culture in treating ...their guests properly. The quality and grade of the unaghi eel is top notch and worth coming back for. Highly recommend this restaurant.
