  • Experience the real taste of unagi at Unakichi
  • There’s only one place to go if you’re looking for authentic unagi in Metro Manila: Unakichi at Makati Cinema Square.

    Unakichi specializes in serving unagi or eel. Most restaurants that serve unagi in the Philippines have to thaw them out as part of preparation. This takes away some of the taste from the eel, giving it a flavor that doesn’t quite fall within the standards of the Japanese. There are those that have eel shipped from Japan, but that still doesn’t beat something taken fresh from the farm.

    Unakichi solves this problem by getting their eel directly from the same farms that Japanese restaurants get their eels from. Combine their fresh eel with a special unagi sauce from a 100-year-old unagi restaurant in Tsukiji and put these in the hands of two excellent Japanese chefs and you have the best-tasting unagi in the metro.

    For first-time diners, we recommend getting their Unajyu Jo or grilled fine eel in unagi sauce with rice for only P980. You can also get a half-serving of their unagi for only P490 with the Unajyu Shou. If you’re looking to splurge, then get their Unajyu Gokujo or grilled excellent eel with rice for P1,580.

    You can find Unakichi at G/F, Parking Area, Makati Cinema Square, Amorsolo St. Makati City. They are open every day for lunch (11:30 am – 2:00 pm) and dinner (6:00 pm – 11:00 pm, last call is at 10:30 pm). For reservations, please call 02-728-2072.
