A small cozy restaurant in the center of Nara.
Main specialization, as the name implies, eel.
However, everything is delicious here. Everything is made from very fresh products. Despite the fact that you will have to wait until the free space is vacated, since it is always crowded, I advise all Japanese food lovers to visit here.

People said it's a must visit restaurant when in Nara. Tried out the grilled eel set - average to good, not so value for money. Price is slightly on high side. Ambiance is nice & staff are friendly. Absolutely good service. Can try out if you happened to visit Nara.

It is situated at the street corner of the end of Shimomikado, a covered shopping walkway with shops. Please come as early as possible. The tables are limited and customers need to queue up. We arrived at 17:45 and get tables by 18:15. We saw long queue the whole night. Visited the souvenir corner around the cashier when you wait. There are tasty dishes other than eel but the eel is a must-not-missed menu. Order the eel set for 3 eating methods : rice, rice+spicy, rice+spicy+tea. Japanese tables. We ordered the pork also. Professional crew.

we came after read many good reviews for this place in the evening at 18.00 pm after visit nara park. no queue and there were only some customers. the service was great, the place had beautiful ambiance, but for the food, it was not as good as we expected. i ordered 1 package of small grilled eel and my husband ordered the sukiyaki and eel package. the grilled eel was so so, not bad but not too delicious, small portion came in 8 small slices of eel,the sukiyaki also not too great with only 4 small slices of eel, but the worst is the prawn tempura which came with the set of sukiyaki and grilled eel package, it tasteless, the inside of it feels like the flour not fried well,feels like they just put there only to complete the package. for only 2 type thing we ordered, we paid around 5800¥ which was not worthed for the taste that we get.
