Restaurant Details

One of the best-rated unagi specialty restaurants in all of Japan is located in the heart of Tokyo, with a Tabelog rating that places it among the top 50 restaurants in the whole country. The former chef and founder of Kabuto has been featured in various magazines and television shows, providing publicity for this restaurant and making it even harder to secure a reservation — it’s rumored that you might have to wait up to a whole six months for a seat! Freshly killed unagi is served on the course menu offered, preserving the rich flavors of the exquisite eels with expert cooking techniques. Some other parts besides the main flesh of the unagi can be sampled here too, including the belly, collar, and liver. Similar to yakiniku, unagi can be seasoned with salt or glazes — the dishes at Kabuto are presented so that the customers can try various combinations of both. Despite being arguably the best unagi restaurant in all of Japan, it’s pleasantly surprising that Kabuto is actually extremely affordable. Such delicious and well-prepared unagi dishes, priced so honestly, more than make up for the potential six month wait.
