  • Our Unagi

    Funaya's unagi are all Japan-produced. We choose high-quality eels bred in good firms in Aichi, Shizuoka, Mie, and so on. Because the quality of eels varies from season to season throughout the year, eels that are best in each season, has thick body and is rich in good fats, are carefully chosen.

  • Grilling

    Best grilled unagi are crisp on the outside but tender on the inside. There is a difference between Kanto (eastern Japan) and Kansai (western Japan) in the way to cook eels. While in Kansai an eel is slit open along the belly and grilled directly and then with sauce, Kanto style is to slit open an eel along the back and steam the eel before grilling with sauce. Funaya employs a unique mixture of Kansai-style of slitting open along the belly and Kanto-style of steaming before grilling, to achive both crispness and tenderness simultaneously. In the steaming and grilling, our chefs carefully adjust the time of these processes in consideration of the conditions of eels of each day. In these processes the chefs show their skills.

  • Sauce

    We inherited a confidential recipe of sauce from our predecessor. The heart of the sauce adding rich flavor to Funaya's unagi is a special Tamari soy sauce, which was finally found after visiting more than ten soy sauce manufacturers. Our original sauce, uninterruptedly replenished for over 80 years, is full of rich taste of unagi.

  • Customer Satisfaction

    We are always encouraged by customers' comments on our dishes. Our mission is to provide the best unagi dishes with reasonable price, for satisfying the customers. We keep visiting various unagi restaurants in all over Kansai to find a hint for further improvement. Based on our 80-year tradition, Funaya never stop evolving.
