We ate here twice within 4 days, that tells you how good it is! The Unagi is served 3 ways and I loved the green onions & seaweed best. We went to the branch that was at the JR station at Meitetsu shopping complex. We...More

The smoked eel rice is a must have in Nagoya. At Maruya, you can definitely taste the smokiness in the oak-charred eel. The benefits of this restaurant is that they offer a mini version of the smoked eel rice, allowing you to try a greater...More

The eel rice was the best I had had. Crispy on the outside, soft inside, and it went very well with the ingredients provided with the set. I had never thought that eel rice could be enjoyed as suggested by the menu. It was worth...More

Broiled unagi rice at its best. Eaten four ways, on its own, with scallions n seaweed, then mixed with wasabi and finally adding the dashi broth. Conveniently located in the Meitetsu shopping complex above the JR station. Queued for an hour plus for lunch on...More

The hitsumabushi was really delicious, even I bought some package to take home. It's expensive and need to be patient with the queue but worth to try. I went there for late lunch, so the queue was not too long, around 15 minutes. There are...More

Second best unagi I've had in my entire life (first would be kyoto unagi restaurant by the river whose name I forgot :( ). First time discovered that unagi is not just plain grilled eel and rice, you can pour soup in too! We had...More

Prepare to queue for awhile. We came during the odd hours and there was still people lining up outside. We waited for about 30mins. But the meal was definetly worth the wait.

Came here during dinner time. As other reviews point out, everyone have to wait for at least 30-40 min. Even though it sounds like a long wait, this is nothing compared to the famous sushi restaurants in Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, where tourists have to...More

How to go to the restaurant from Nagoya JR station?

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.
