A must in Hiroshima, very good selection of Okonomyaki, cooked freshly. Plenty of flavour accompanied by a friendly atmosphere.

We highly recommend this place for the food and experience. When you enter, just take a seat - there is no ordering machine here. Ideally choose one of the seats by the long cooking plate so that you can enjoy looking at the okonomiaki being cooked. The staff does not speak English but they have English menus. We took the...

I get so frustrated when I visit great local restaurants with good food and good prices but they forget about customer experience. If this restaurant had amazing service and really cared about the customer by acknowledging them and appreciating them it goes from 3 stars to 5 stars. Food was great. Experience was non existent.

Loved this place. Sat at the hot plate whilst the very friendly chef cooked our okonomiyaki. This was delicious and cheap. No frills needed. The staff didn't speak English but communicating by pointing on a English menu was easy

Good little restaurant where the food will be cooked in front of you. From the outside there are no English signs or words. Don't let this intimidate you. Just go in and sit down at any of the free seats at the counter. The staff will then give you a menu in English and you can select what you want,... More

Had a great okonomiyaki dinner, great food , nice staff and good value . One of the few authentic places that has a separate non smoking dining room, I am not big on eating where others are smoking in front of my meal being cooked so this a great place for me and my family.

Pretty easy to find. Look for the photo posted here of the outside of the restaurant. I was denied entry to a higher-rated okonomiyaki restaurant, so I headed to this one, since it was only about .4 miles away. I sat at the counter and watched the cooks prepare my okonomiyaki on the grill in front of me. I have... More

start with a crepe, add shredded cabbage, protein, secret ingredients, cook on grill, flip, add egg and other ingredients. Top with special sauce. A lot of fun, great filling meal and great staff.

Hiroshima is revered by Japanese as the best place in the country for okonomiyaki. My wife, who is Japanese (from central Honshu), was keen to try a local okonomiyaki-ya while we were in Hiroshima...and Henkutsuya proved to be a terrific choice. We perched ourselves on the counter as soon as a couple of seats became available and watched our okonomiyaki... More

Hiroshima is famous for its okonomiyaki and this restaurant doesn't disappoint. Gansu is located in the centre of the city about 3km from the train station. We were seated at the counter with a number of other locals on a busy Friday night. The menu is short and basic but the results are great. I went for the soba special... More
