Company Profile

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.

代表取締役社長 半田 廣行

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.
