The eel taste is very good and different. Normally eel is cooked to be very tendered and soft, easily melted in the mouth. How ever this restaurant cooks it with a little bit crispy outside, while still very soft inside. And the speciality of this...More

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!

Expect a long wait in line and consider quite expensive, but this is one of Nagoya's famous cuisine and I have no regrets paying almost 4,000yen for the set lunch because it was so good!

Was in Nagoya for a 2 nights. Heard about Maruya hitsumabashi (grilled eels) at Nagoya station. It was delicious 😋. The perfectly-grilled exquisite hitsumabashi was really tasty & was the best that I have tasted. We waited for 30 minutes. Service was excellent & efficient....More

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.
