In Japan if people are queuing outside a restaurant you know it’s gonna be good. This Okonomiyaki place is better than just good, it’s hitting the awesome mark. Can’t say I’m a big Okonomiyaki fan, but after trying a few bites here, I realised probably...haven’t had a great one. This place feels like a bit of an institution, judging by all the tourist photos with the old owner on the wall. The owner was charming and friendly and very eager to engage in a chat and entertain between working hard over the hot plate. The food itself was great, we tried different styles of Okonomiyaki and found each combination of meat or seafood moorish and both crispy and moist depending on how well done the noodles were. So despite the queue the wait was really worth tasting all the different flavours and the charming hospitality of the owner.More
Fantastic food! Hard to find and the door is shut so it looks closed but just walk right in. Look out for the red flag on the door! We didn’t have to wait but went quite early. (5:30ish). They asked if we had ever done...okonomiyaki before (we hadn’t) so the boss said he would make us something, checked now allergies and produced two awesome dishes! Would recommend!More
Great Okonomiaki! It was my first okonomiaki ever and I've really enjoyed it. I've waited about an hour but it's worth for. The staff is very friendly and explained the only in japanese written menu.
I've had a really nice chat with the owner and...a super tasty okonomiaki for a great price.More
This is seriously the best okonomiyaki I ever had. The sauce they used is savory. Staff are friendly. The store is a lil bit rundown from the inside but the food is the focus of this restaurant. Price is totally reasonable. One downside of the...restaurant is that you need to wait for at least 30-45 mins or even more for a table if you are not early enough.More
Came here specially to try the Okonomiyaki. It is not easy to get to the Umeda Sky Building itself. Go from Osaka station and Grand Front Osaka, cross the road and go straight all the way.
It is at Basement 1 and look for number...7 with the red banner as shown. When we arrived, it was around 1pm and there was a queue of about 2 groups. We were waiting outside as the door has to be closed. When customers leave the restaurant, the next group can proceed in and take a seat inside while waiting for them to clear the tables and assign you a seat. We waited for about 20 min.
The place itself is quite small and as we are a couple, we were given the seat at the counter. Not a bad issue except the smoky smell gets onto your clothes. You can put your bag and outwear in the space in the chair under the cushion.
Good thing is you can to see the chef cook your food and others in front of you. They can't really speak English but one chef told us there are pork, beef, seafood and noodles option. I believe there is more options as we saw many more on the Japanese menu. Still happy to just order one pork and one with soba noodles.
Price came up to 1680 yen for both our food which I find affordable. It is also delicious too. However, I likely won't make another special trip down again since I have to wait and okonomiyaki can be found in most places too.
Nonetheless, good experience for tourists.More
Food is great, experience is great, service is great. They don’t take bookings because they don’t need to so allow so time for waiting or go before 5pm for early dinner.
Surprisingly really cheap so enjoy
