We made lunch reservation through our guide/travel agency and did not have to wait too long for our table. The restaurant was small but my brother in law managed to drive his motorised scooter to the table. Have to say that there was a long queue when we finished our meal. The food came quite fast, the unagi was cooked... More

We had reservation for eight people and arrived on time. However, there were tons of people waiting outside the door and we were told that since they have too many guests waiting they are unable to arrange a table for us ! It is unacceptable and such a dishonest behavior is also rare in Japan! Very disappointed !

The worse experience in Japan ever, we had made the reservation, but due to the waiting line was long so the reservation was cancelled and they did not make an announcement . Once we had arrived on time, the reception told us have to wait for another 2 hours! Although your food may be delicious and famous, your services is... More

This shop has a designated carpark which is very convenient if you're driving there. If this is your first time then Hitsumabushi is the definite dish of choice. You get grilled unagi (eel) in a large wooden bowl, and they also provide instructions in English how to experiece it in different ways (on its own, with condiments, and with green... More

My wife reserached on famous Nagoya food that we had to try, and we visited this restaurant after our stroll in Atsuta Shrine area. We visited the restaurant about 4;30 pm and to no surprise, a long waiting queue already established. Staff politely informed us of about 30 min waiting time. The restaurant provided a small living room for waiting... More

Had only one night in Nagoya so decided to take the family to sample their most famous dish. We were not actually that hungry, so ended up ordering 2 of the most expensive dinner sets in extra size, which turned out to be more than enough. We had previously sampled Japanese grilled eel in Japanese restaurants in Hong Kong, but... More

This was a fun experience. Don't know if I "get it", what all they hype is about, but it was good food, and it seems to be a place the locals love. It is considered a local specialty, and that's why we came. It sounds like you can have quite a wait without reservations, but we seemed to catch it... More

We wanted to try the grilled eel in Nagoya as it is a local specialty and this restaurant was recommended to us by the lady at the airport tourist office as well as being mentioned in the Lonely Planet. We arrived at 4.30pm just as the restaurant was opening and after looking around the Atsuta Shrine. We were seated straightaway... More

It is suppose to be the most famous food in Nagoya. We went to the Jingu shop and try the standard Hitsumabushi set. However it is disappointing. The grilled eel rice itself is just at a normal standard, you can easily find eel rice that is better than them. Perhaps because I am from Hong Kong and there are lots... More

Located in a beautiful area, so when I got there at 1:45 and was told to wait until 2:45 to get in, I could spend an hour wandering around the shrine grounds to build up an appetite. I was seated at a Japanese style table, (tatami floor and pillow to kneel on) so I felt a little bit awkward regarding... More
