Came here on a cold winter night and this time made a reservation through my hotel concierge. Last time I was in Tokyo this place rubbed me a bit on the wrong side when I entered and there was nobody there and they told me...More

I was firstly impressed by the exterior-looking of the restaurant, old & tyical japanese style surrounded by modern building in that area. Inside was cosy and authentic. The service was fast and kind. The taste was worth as its cost.

Perhaps one of the best anago I had. You may see a long line during the lunch time but you won't wait too long if you are solo. Highly recommended.

You can only have eels but it's definitely worth trying. Go early as the last order is taken at 9 and lask for the starters as they are not written om the English menu. Highly recommended.

Hole in the wall small restaurant serving mostly barbecued and boiled eel and rice in bento boxes. Very delicious and smooth-taste eel. The sauce is to die for. This has to be an attraction in downtown Tokyo.

Had high expectations of this Michelin bib gourmand-rated place. The restaurant is in a atmospheric old building not far from the Nihombashi station. We had the medium-sized set meals with half simmered and half roasted eels and additional soup. Despite a generous eel to rice...More

Very unassuming little shop in the middle of nowhere. Hard to imagine that it serves one of the best Unadon in Tokyo. Ordered the medium set which allows you to chose the mix flavor - both steam and grilled. And like what some has alluded,...More

Just a few minutes walk from Takashimaya Department Store in Nihombashi is a quaint and traditional restaurant noted for anago (sea-eel). Arrive early to avoid the queue and you will be rewarded with the unique experience of boiled or broiled sea-eel in the typical box....More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
