This was one of the best Unagi I've had. Fresh, tasty, and perfectly grilled, the unagi sets were reasonably priced & filling. The yuzu sorbet is also highly recommended if you have room for dessert.

Housed in tatami-floored old building, Edogawa Naramachi, provides a good atmosphere and efficient, it not overwhelmingly friendly, service. English menus are easy to understand. Lots of ala carte and set menu options.

We chanced upon this place while walking in the nearby shopping street. There was a queue so we figured it would be good. They specialise in unagi, and I have to say they prepare their eel very well. It was tender and melt in the mouth on the inside, but crispy on the outside. We opted for the cheaper set... More

After walking around "Naramachi", at Dear Coffee located nearby "Daijouin Garden", we got carefully brewed coffee. The master of Dear Coffee picked and selected good beans and roast them by himself. A cup of coffee is 500 yen, not cheap but reasonable for coffee lovers.

We arrived for late lunch at around 3pm to avoid the crowd and was ushered immediately to a tatami-styled dining room. The unagi is one of the better ones I ever had but slightly pricey. The eel is fresh and grilled to perfection. We had a sashimi platter too but that was really just average. So go for what they... More

Edogawa is a chain of restaurants specialising in eel dishes. From JR Nara Station, if you make a right turn into the shopping alley, this branch is at the end of the long street. It's opened from 11 am to 10 pm throughout, so we were truly glad when we reached at about 2 pm, famished, to find it still... More

Close to our guesthouse we had lunch in Edogawa Naramachi that specialises in unagi. We had an excellent lunch ofcourse with uniga as well as tempura.

Queuing takes about 30 minutes but the ambience and food is definitely worth the wait. A large set of eel rice and side dishes (cawanmushi and mochi deserts) cost around 1800 yen. Staff speaks basic English and are friendly.

We came here following recommendations on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed, this place is excellent. For the little ones, there is a very good Children menu including mini hamburger steak, sausages, tempura and even a fruit. Our oldest daughter, aged 9, took a classic Japanese menu with sashimi, tempura and vegetables and she almost finished it all: very fresh... More

There is a great tendency to review decent places as 4 or 5 on Trip Advisor because there is nothing between "Average" and "Very Good" - how abput "Good?". This tends to exaggerate the quality of some places. This I believe is one of them. The ambience is pleasant, the staff polite to a fault, the restaurant spotless. The food... More
