Maybe I just don't like Okonomiyaki or maybe the flavors aren't so good... it's very hard to find the place (just like a lot of things in tokyo), the area isn't that attractive to visit and you wait 30 minutes in a staircase just to...More

We came here 2 years ago when we were on holiday in Osaka. This time when we came back to Osaka, it was on our to-do list of places to visit. Still as yummy as 2 years ago, in a quaint little basement that is...More

This restaurant is located in the very quaint underground food court of the Umeda Sky Building. If you think mall food court, think again. This basement level is a recreation of an old street, it even has a small shrine! The restaurant also has an...More

The okonomiyaki I had was spectacular. So simple, yet so good, and I got to see it made first-hand from the bar. The atmosphere was also wonderful! The chef was super friendly and attentive, and even gave someone sitting at the bar a fan when...More
