Had the specialty for dinner. Did not disappoint at all, though bad to wait for about an hour. Staff were polite even though the restaurant was busy. Recommended for the Unagi.

One of the best unagi I had in my life. Abit pricey but it's definitely worth the queue and the price! Great service too.. and staff can speak English!

Response from 天才イチロー |
You go out to the east side of JR NAGOYA( SAKURA-DORI side) and you can find MEITETU departmentstore infront of the gate. MARUYA is on the 9 floor of the departmentstore.
