We had a wonderful moment in this small restaurant.
The food is very tasty and the service is just perfect.
This is one of our best surprises during our two weeks stay in Japan.

Absolutely delicious and generous ! The owner works there alone and is very kind (speaks a little bit of English and menus are in English so no problem). We had a lovely evening and even had the chance to meet very friendly Japanese people. The okonomyakis are absolutely delicious, the best we had during our stay !

Although a fair way from the main attractions at Nara, this is actually very close to the JR station and is a perfect spot to end the day if you need to head back to another city.

It's quiet and the owner clearly cares about good food and good service. There's a hot plate on the table to keep the okononiyaki warm while you eat it, and she routinely checked in with advice on how to best enjoy it (despite my best efforts, I wasn't the neatest at eating this!)

Would highly recommend if you're closer to the JR station and in want of a meal.

ご来店と高評価のレビューをありがとうございます。メイン通りから離れた小さなレストランを見つけて下さりありがとうございました。
一人の営業の為にタイミングでお待たせすることがあり申し訳なく思っていますが、ご不便ありませんでしたか?お好み焼きを楽しんでいただけましたか?良いご旅行を!
ありがとうございました。

Amazing little gem I found thanks to tripadvisor - go there before it loses its charm!

The restaurant is very small so it fills in quite easily, perhaps better to visit for a later-than-standard lunch! Kazumi cooks okonomiyaki in her own style and she serves them on a piping hot grill in your table so it keeps hot throughout your meal. It was delicious and a bargain (only 850 yen!). We had a great chat because it was very quiet when I went, and she is very kindhearted. Couldn’t have been happier with my choice on that day!

ご来店とレビューをありがとうございます。私はお客様に美味しく召し上がって頂くために食材は妥協しません。しかし、お好み焼きの価格として妥当であるよう設定しています。
お喜び頂けることがとても嬉しいのですが私の利益は少ないのです。ですから、時々800円650円のお好み焼きを二人で一つお召し上がりのお客様が私にとっては残念な思いがします。
逆に、追加オーダーして下さったり、私のお好み焼き価格に価値を見出してチップをくださるお客様もいます。勿論私は受け取りませんがお気持ちは嬉しいです。ですから適正価格とご判断頂き、大人一人に付きお好み焼き又は焼きそばのメインを一つ以上ご注文頂けるだけで大変助かります。私がレストランを継続していけますよう、あなたのお褒めに便乗してレビューをご覧くださるお客様にお願い致します。ありがとうございます。from KAZUMI

I love okonomiyaki and I loved this unassuming place. It’s small as is the menu but the food is to die for. Its owner has a big generous heart and was very kind and patient with our orders. The other guests lived nearby and declared this was their favourite eating place.
