I just walked in after a few rounds in that area. I loved my sushi. It was fresh and tasty and much much bigger as the sushi in europe. Very friendly service. They a menu with pictures so its easier to choose. Also do take away from 10 am.

This restaurant is one of the least expensive fugu (pufferfish) restaurant in Dotonbori area. Staffs are friendly and helpful and speaks pretty good English and English menu is available. Food is good and the nicely presented (set menu). The set menu price is pretty reasonable. Advance reservation is required as this restaurant is very popular among the locals and tourist.... More

Picked this restaurant over others as quite good recommendation from online...price no cheaper. Turned up at the counter and this guy looked at us and ignored us...calling the next group to go in and while we patiently wait he ignored us and took payment from a Japanese businessman just came out to pay his bill. I interrupted him in English... More

Our group of for cane here for dinner. Each of us ordered a "set" (the one that's about 5500JPY). The fugu sashimi has good texture. It was followed by a hotpot (with the remaining parts of the fish, tofu and vegetable). The finale, which was my favorite, was a thick porridge made from the remaining broth, rice and egg mixed...

We stumbled upon this Fugu restaurant while walking the streets of Dotonbori. As we didn't have the opportunity to try this delicacy at Kyoto, we immediately walked into the restaurant without reservation for dinner. On first impression, we noted that there were lots of local businessmen in suits patronizing the restaurant. We though it should be quite good as they... More

We ate from the Fugu menu and picked the option to experience as many different ways of eating the Fugu fish as possible, from sushi and sashimi, to boiled and BBQ'ed (which was rather delicious as it happened!). While, like other people I personally found that the Fugu sashimi tasted rather bland for my liking, my partner enjoyed that dish... More

This is the best place to try Fugu (blow fish). They fry it, grill it, make sashimi from it for tens years. Yes, its famous blowfish which you actually can die from but... not here. The superior quality, freshness and reliability are trademarks of this restaurant. Excellent service and a lot of fugu options to choose from. And please choose... More

The display in the windowshop case was enticing, you we gave it a try. The fish was not of the best quality and nether was the beef. The amount of fishmeat is ludicrous. There is no effort put in arrangement, the atmosphere is bad and so was the service.

Always wanted to try the blowfish and it was worth it! Succulent, with just the right amount of texture similar to meat. Excellent!
