If you have money to splurge, come here if you are a lover of eel on rice. The eel is very tasty and they make roast the eel in-house. Dinner for two came in around $100 cdn. The restaurant is located inside the mall, 7th...floor.More

The Japanese receptionist is very impolite and rude to foreigners. He said if you cannot speak Japanese you are not welcome to there to had meals . It is a very bad feeling . 那個接待員店長非常不禮貌和粗魯對待外地遊客,他說如果你不能說日文就不要到我店光顧,他用流利的英文叫我們去學日文

First time tried hitsumabushi and I feel in love with it. Crispy on the outside but really soft in the inside. Really delicious.

Lunch started at 11am. Arrived about 10min late and already many people queuing. Waited almost 2 hours. Ordered the biggest set - cost about JPY5,800 without tax. Outer layer of eel is very crispy and inner is soft. The combined textures together with the rice...gave its unique delicious taste. There are 3 ways of eating : scoop out a portion into the small bowl. 1) Eat as it is; 2) Eat with wasabi and spring onions; 3) Pour clear soup and eat as a porridge.More

If you like grilled eel, and I love it, you will be hard pressed to find better. Slightly crisp, fresh from the grill, served in a bowl or box. You can add extra if you order the box. Eat it Nagoya style 4 sections of...the bowl, 1/4 with wasabi and scallions, 1/4 with broth added, 1/4 plain and the last 1/4 as you liked the best. Served with miso soup and pickles as well. A treat in the train station shopping center. Not cheap but fabulous.More

We arrived with a group of friends, and were seated at a low table on a podium, with cushions for sitting (there are normal tables as well though). The food and service were excellent, even though the personnel spoke almost no English, everything went smoothly,...and we spent some very good time.More

Hitsumabushi Nagoya Bincho at the ESCA underground mall right next to Nagoya station. . It's #45 on the directory map. Again there was a long line up but you were given English menu and can order before you even enter the restaurant. One of Nagoya's...specialty is hitsumabushi: charcoal-grilled eel. Cut grilled eel sits on rice coated with a sweet sauce. First you take some eel and rice from the round lacquer bowl and place it in an empty rice bowl in ceramic, mix and eat it plainly. Then, you add green onions & wasabi, mix and enjoy. Thirdly, add seasoning & dried seaweed, mix & then pour hot broth onto it to enjoy the eel ochazuke (rice soup) style. The fantastically grilled eels were crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I don't remember which bento lunch size we ordered but we were super full as the portion was quite big. If you love eels, I would advise you not to miss out on the grilled eels at Hitsumabushi Bincho!More

We visited the restaurant in a shopping mall called La Chic which is pretty near Oasis 21. In Japan the restaurants in shopping malls are usually located at one of the highest floors of the building. The eel was grilled to perfection and was certainly...one of the best unagi meals I have ever had. You can opt for the set that allows you to eat the grilled eel in 4 different ways (this one contains a smaller portion of grilled eel). If you would like more grilled eel, you can choose the regular bento set where the grilled eel is served on top of rice. If you would like more grilled eel (because it's so good), you can upgrade for a bigger portion of eel.More
