We decided to eat eel for lunch, this restaurant is the best place to eat eel. Remember, there is no traditional table with chairs, it is a Japanese restaurant, so after 10 minutes we felt very uncomfortable. Waiter does not speak english
After enjoying the beautiful scenery, I went to eat at this gion uokeya U restaurant with my friends. The eel rice in this restaurant is really super famous in Kyoto, and the big eels are very appetizing.
The restaurant service staff are warm and attentive. Although the language is not fluent, they tried very hard to communicate with us. The restaurant manager was very professional and quickly returned the umbrella we lost in the store, and also paid for the freight, which fully shows how good their attitude towards customers is. The quality and grade of the eel is top-notch and it is worth coming again. Highly recommend this restaurant.
We did not make a reservation in advance. Like a very popular Michelin restaurant, the ingredients are limited every day. We prepare as much as we make a reservation. We knocked on the door with the mentality of giving it a try. There was a forty or fifty-year-old waiter inside. We politely asked if we booked. When we said that we did not book, she showed a very embarrassed expression, but she may have seen us bring the children and did not refuse us but let us come in 30 minutes. , I’m so happy, 30 minutes is already a short waiting time, we just happened to stroll around Huajian Road, it is easy to send out the time, come back on time for dinner, only をんう restaurant is very small, strollers are definitely recommended There are two floors in total. The first floor is a table and chair, and the second floor is a tatami mat sitting cross-legged on the floor. We were asked to go to the second floor. The menu is very simple. You can order eel and rice per capita. We ordered four. The set meal per person is 13,500 yen, and the per capita is more than 200 yuan. The set includes side dishes and miso soup. There is free ice water. You can also order drinks and beer. After a while, our eel rice will be packed in a big wooden barrel. Now, the bucket hasn’t been opened yet, and the smell of eel has already floated out. I’m looking forward to it. The eel rice is amazing. The eel is grilled at just the right time. The fish is very tender. The sauce will not take away the freshness of the fish. The rice grains are distinct. The sauce and grilled fish oil erodes into the rice, making the rice also have the deliciousness of fish and sauce
The famous eel rice in a cedar barrel. The eel is soft but not loose, the sauce is rich but not greasy, and the rice topped with the sauce shines with attractive luster. There are two star eel rice in Kyoto. This restaurant is slightly inferior to Guangchuan in terms of texture and taste. If you can't book Guangchuan in Arashiyama, you don't want to queue for two hours under the scorching sun. Then come to Gion to try your luck. I used to call to make an appointment when it was full of seats, but then I passed by here at noon two times. With the mentality of giving it a try, I successfully arranged a seat. [Reservation] It is recommended to come and try your luck around 13:00. It may happen that the first group of guests left on time at noon, and there are still eels left, and then they caught up with the empty seats in the second group.
