The staff were very helpful and great service! Helped out a lot and were great enough to cater to my cousin's food allergies. Made her day.

1) The restaurant is on the second floor and it's entrance is marked by a red banner. Don't be discouraged by the ground floor that looks like an abandoned pub etc. 2) Interesting experience to enjoy okonomiyaki over a beer with the sound of the trains passing over your head intermittently 3) I prefer the basic savory pork and cabbage...

We almost missed this eatery because we do not read Japanese. It's above a pub that looked somewhat abandoned. You have to push a sliding door aside, climb up a flight of steps and queue up! It's small, sits about twenty, and while waiting/eating, you hear the roar of the trains above and around you. The food was good, service... More

This is certainly my favorite experience dining in Osaka. The chef was warm and personal and the okonomiyaki was absolutely delicious. The place is full of soul. I give it five stars with ease.

Never came across an okonomiyaki and yakisoba so good before! Could tell this is a long-standing establishment since there were photos even from the 1990s pasted on the wall. Not to mention the chefs were really warm and friendly. Definitely a must go esp if you happen to be around the Umeda area for the sky observatory or shopping.

We embarked on the hunt for Osaka's best okonomiyaki and yakisoba, after watching Mark Wien's video. Did not disappoint at all. Your food will be kept warm always, as they are placed on a hot plate on the table. Really fun for taking photos! Noodles were al dente and smooth, with the perfect balance of ingredients in it. Sauce was... More

Went to the restaurant at the 3rd day of our trip. The restaurant is small but the service is great. Please go early if you want to eat there as the queue was quite long when we were there at 6pm. There was 6 people in front of us at that time. The owner was very kind and inform us... More

Small and busy place for great okonomiyaki under the Umeda Sky Building in central Osaka. You'll have to wait in line at this very busy place, but it's definitely worth the wait. They know they are busy so orders are taken while you wait for a seat to eat. Very efficient at serving the customers. No English menu, but one... More

Came here because of good reviews on tripadvisor, was not disappointed as I left with a full stomach and had a pleasant experience. Chefs are extremely friendly and even though we did not speak Japanese managed to order our food without much fuss. However, I am puzzled why it is ranked the 3rd best restaurant, in osaka. Good to try... More
