Ganso Motoyoshiya

Reviewed By Princess_Pudding - Hong Kong, China

We passed by this restaurant during our canal boat cruise. The end of the cruise is actually just a few minutes walk back to the restaurant. Our friend told us that this restaurant is 300 years old, and it made Yanagawa's Unagi no Seiro Mushi dish famous! The menu is quite simple. Basically, the steamed eel dish is all there is on the menu. And it did not disappoint. Just the aroma of the dish alone made our mouths water. We loved the sauce they used for the dish - we found it perfectly balanced with the eel. Needless to say, we diligently polished off our food to the last grain of rice.

有明海にしかいない海産物を販売する魚屋さんが、隣接しています。この店では、隣の魚屋さんで売っている新鮮な魚を料理して食べさせてくれます。お薦めは「クツゾコ」(舌ひらめ)の煮つけです。

Tachibana Udon

Reviewed By arakimi - Fukuoka, Japan

柳川では知らない人がいない位、有名なうどん屋さんです。西鉄柳川駅から国道に出て、どんこ船乗り場の方に行き、それを通りすぎます。かなり広めの駐車場がありますが、昼食時などは一杯になります。一番人気は「肉うどん」のようです。お店の人は、日に500杯はいくと話されてました。自分はもう少しボリュームのある「ゴボ天肉うどん」また「まぜめし」はこの店の名物で、大変美味しいですよ。

こちらの古連は、西鉄柳川駅のすぐ近くにあります。柳川は鰻のせいろ蒸しが美味しいと聞いてきましたが、本当に美味しいと思いました。鍋もありましたが、やっぱりせいろ蒸しに決定。ふっくら柔らかい鰻が美味しかったです。後に気がつきましたが、本当に鰻店が沢山ありました。

Uangino Daito

Reviewed By IchiroTA - Fukuoka, Japan

 This restaurant is very big and many diners may eat delicious eel dishes at the same time. One of popular eel dishes is “Unagi no seiromushi”, steamed rice mixed with eel kabayaki and dense sauce in a steamer. You can enjoy its nice flavors of the Spitchcocked eel and the sauce. This restaurant was designed to look like an old Japanese house and has a gift shop. You can enjoy Japanese atmosphere, traditional Japanese meals and shopping. It may be very convenient for people who don’t have enough time to enjoy Yanagawa.

Wakamatsuya

Reviewed By Yapahloy - Singapore

You can buy the Yanagawa and Dazaifu package with meal from Nishtetsu Station. With the meal coupon, you may choose one of the participating restaurants to have your lunch. Wakamatsuya is one of the participating restaurants. Judging by the queue, I think Wakamatsuya is certainly attracting both local and foreign visitors. You must be prepared to wait. At the end of the day, it is really worth the wait as the unagi rice is one of the best I have ever tasted. It was steamed in a wooden box with a fragrant sauce. Well. You have not come to Yanagawa if you have not tasted it.

Motoyoshiya Okinohata

The eel rice in Yanagawa is legendary and so is this restaurant. Was sceptical about eating eel which I had never tasted before but the dish is so beautifully prepared and the experience of eating it sitting on the floor is incomparable. Do try this after your river boat ride!

Saray Fukuryu

Reviewed By cliffman33 - Singapore, Singapore

We detoured to Yanagawa en route from Kagoshima to Fukuoka, specially to try this famous steamed/grilled unagi dish. Saray Fukutyu was a perfect choice. Not only was the fish done to perfection, the unagi sauce infused rice was very yummy too. The lovely ambience here, coupled with good services made the dining experience complete.
