I am not a fan of unagis but my friends are. One of the reasons why my taste buds do not fancy the serpent like fish is because of its accompanying teriyaki sauce. Yes, I am part of one of those rare breeds of Japanese who cannot do sweet and sour. Well, at Nodaiwa, they serve it without sauce and... More

A friend recommended this place to me and I am the biggest fan of Japanese food. Super delicious unagi bowls and friendly staff, very authentic. Pretty steep on the price though.

I had the unagi with broth to try; having been to their other branch in japan the taste is comparable. Price wise a bit expensive. Make sure you make reservation. They are full during lunch time and doesnt take walk ins.

Very low-key, traditional space, pretty no-frills. The unagi main dishes are the stars. There is also a good selection of sake.

I dare not to go to Japanese restaurants in Paris except 2-3 real good ones, because most are run by Chinese only serving 'sushi' (but away from real sushi from Japanese prospective). However Nodaiwa is definitely exceptional for me and I go there frequently. They do even better job than most eel restaurants in Tokyo, of course their head shop... More

We had lunch here and i have nothing to complain about. Unagi was very very good, not fishy at all!! It was not cheap but definately worth it. 가볼만 해요 장어가 하나도 비리지 않네요 세트로 먹었는데 참치회 3 조각, 절임반찬, 미소시루 나와요. 꼭 새트로 안드셔도 될듯.

I know one should never compare Unagi don in Japan to one in Paris but with this kind of price tag sometimes one must. Nodaiwa is a good restaurant and I often visit myself. Though it is very pricey and you should be aware that the waiting time once you order the food is rather long, sometimes up to 40... More

We came here based on the tripadvisor rating for a lunch. The eel was really fine, but it was the first time I ever ate eel, so I can't know for sure how the quality was. The rest of the food was good, but not extraordinary.
