Great place although misled by one review saying second floor however only waited 15 mins once we found it in the basement. Queuing out the door before we were seated though! ( 18.30 on a Friday evening) Missed getting the Yaki soba as the menu wasn't in English but beef and prawn okonomiyaki were excellent. May well try this again... More

Coming here because all the good reviews and definitely agree. Small restaurant with amazing food. Many notes from all the guests as the shop wallpaper. Staff can speak english and really kind. Try the seafood okonomiyaki and soba okonomiyaki ( I guess) and it was amazing. This like the best okonomiyaki that I ever had!

It seems that TA reviews are really hit and miss. This one is a miss... We were excited to sample the food here and happy to wait the hour it took to get through the sliding door based on the previous reviews, but can't honestly say the place deserves to be rated #3 in all Osaka. The menu was only... More

Very small place, but the okonomiyakib there is delicious. Even better still, the yakisoba was the best I've tasted so far. Fed 4 adults for about 3200 yen. So very affordable for some nice food.

Nice place to visit especially during sunset. A lot of locals gather for coffee chit chatting and most tables taken half hour before sunset. Breathtaking views during light and dark can be appreciated. A must if in Osaka.. at least you have seen one of the 20 must see buildings in the world!

Skyline towers are always a must do in cities like Osaka. The line was fairly big to get up there but it was organized efficiently enough so we only waited 10-15 minutes or so (we were there in the off season though). Cost 1000yen each to get up to the sky deck then we could wander and take photos as... More

We arrived around 3 plus and managed to get a seat at 4. We ordered an okonomiyaki and a moden yaki. The moden yaki is a yaki soba with egg. Both costing us less than ¥2000. The moden yaki is super super good. Absolutely delicious. Totally worth the wait. Go at an odd timing. When we left the queue snaked... More

As trivial as it sounds - it is an experience and not just a meal. Was lucky enough to get a "front row seat" and loved every minute of it. It is THE place to get okonomiyaki in Osaka and the restaurant itself has a lot of charm and is as authentic as they can come. You will have to... More
