The food here is very tasty. Mr. Lopez, originally from Guatemala is a very friendly and talkative guy. He speaks fluent English, Spanish and Japanese and he will gladly help you with explanations if you're not that familiar with okonomiyaki yet. My girlfriend and I...More

Terrific okonomiyaki, great flavors. Can add jalapeños, cheese, and other non Japanese ingredients. Chips and salsa are available along with tequila and mezcal. Mr. Lopez was happy to engage in conversation and made the visit fantastic.

I was surprised when I found the restaurant back in 2014. It is owned by Lopes, a super nice guy, that welcomes foreigners speaking English, Japanese, Portuguese or Spanish. The service is as awesome as the food is. Looking forward to eat more of those...More
