About us

Making our customers happy
with Uoi’s safe and excellent Unagi

We believe that most people are not really fussy about food.
If the customer finds the eel or any kind of vegetable is safe and cooked properly,
we believe that customer will enjoy it. There might be a possibility of people
who have likes and dislikes have had a bad first impression of a particular food
because it was not cooked properly.
Some of our customers didn’t like eel until they tried our eel, and turned out to
be eel as one of their favorite food. This sort of feedbacks make us very happy, but
also a little disappointed finding out the fact that there are still many people who
have never experienced the taste of good Unagi.

It is our joy to serve the best eels by selecting, preparing , and grilling the finest
eels, as we always have been doing.
We will strive ourselves by maintaining and gaining professional skills to continue
serve the safe and delicious food for our customers.
