It’s safe to say that Unagiya Ichinoji Suntec City serves some of the best unagi in Singapore. As their name suggests, this City Hall eatery specialises in Japanese freshwater eel dishes. Their craft in this delicious food is best sampled by ordering a signature unagi hitsumabushi, the style traditionally from Nagoya in which the eel is barbecued. Unagiya Ichinoji also serves a range of other irresistible Japanese delicacies like sushi, sashimi, charcoal-grilled seafood and deep-fried karaage. With a few Unagiya Ichinoji restaurants now scattered around Singapore, it’s clear locals love the food and ambience that comes with dining here. The Suntec City branch, located within the shopping centre on Temasek Boulevard, is well-lit, modern and spacious. Yet despite the numerous seats, this place is popular and we highly recommend reserving your table in advance.

Ordered the full Unajyu set when I visited. The portion was very generous and the unagi was nicely grilled. (Diners with small appetites might want to consider getting the half set.) I love the slight bitterness from the charred parts as it complements the sweet marinade well. The clear soup was flavourful as well.
Very kind and nice staff. Food and beer are both great
