Come here on a weekday and at lunch time and you can probably save some money, however, you won't save much because the meal is still expensive but worth it for the experience. Do take note to book and reserve seats as it's rather popular.
The waitresses are all in kimonos and it's almost as if you're escorted to Japan in an instant.
I ordered the mini-eel and Kabayaki style as I couldn't bear to spend more than I needed in order to obtain this experience ($68 before GST and service charge). There are 3 different choices that you can choose from and the most expensive option is when you can eat the unaju in 3 different ways.
1) eaten the normal way: unaju and rice.
2) eaten with spring onion, wasabi, and other condiments which they provide
3) eaten with soup
I think my favorite is option #2, but be experimental and try all 3 ways if you've never had the opportunity before.
If you're confused, do ask the waitresses as they are quite helpful.
Salad and Tofu as appetizers
The condiments that you add to get Option #2.
Freshwater eel that apparently they raise themself and isn't outsourced
Green Tea ice cream to finish off the meal
