Nodaiwa (1 Michelin Star) is known for serving wild eels (Not farmed).
The Unaju ; Grilled eel with sauce served with rice in a lacquered box starting from as low as 2,200¥(but served in a bowl) to 5,400¥. Any request for dishes more than 5,400¥ can be requested. Basically it is the amount of eel that is being served.

As you may know, the cost of unagi is not cheap, and seeing as Nodaiwa is a Michelin starred restaurant in Tokyo, I was surprised that the prices are not exorbitant. Total damage for 2 pax was under 10,000¥ for lunch.

Reservations necessary. English menu provided. Request for a private room if available.
