Review of Sakura Maru

Reviewed 30 March 2018

The place was full when we got there, so we had to wait (the good thing, in front of it there is a store where you can make time go faster). The main dish and the one that they cook in front of you (hibachi style) is the Okonomiyaki. In the traditional way or change the noodles for spicy noodles, this dish is amazing, all the ingredients combined are just the best, totally recommended for adventurer that want to feel the tradition in a bite.

If you want to try a good okonomiyaki you should definitely try Sakura Maru.
The place is really small, so be prepare to wait a little bit if you go at noon or at dinner time.
The best spot is the one in front of the grill that allows you to see how the okonomiyaki is done: we had the regular one and it was really good.
The service was really friendly even though it was at the same time very polite in pure Japanese style.
The bill was quite cheap so, if you are on the island, please stop and eat an okonomiyaki!

Tasteless, scrappy making, no attention to details whatsoever... I tried the spicy noodles without the sauce on top. A complete disaster and pricey while we're at it: 900 yen. Avoid!

After the A-bomb obliterated Hiroshima, the remaining population had nothing to cook with so they used metal sheets over wood fires to make this excellent pancake dish - out of destruction comes innovation. With a base of pancake, followed by cabbage, any meat and egg topped with a sauce, this food helped the survivors of the cataclysmic event. And the best in the world is cooked here.

This place, despite the staff speaks not much English, has English menu (some people will consider it basic menu, but it's enough), and is prepared for people who don't eat fish and/or meat, allergies, and others. Great surprise. The main dish, popular in that part of Japan (in Hiroshima as well), called Okonomiyaki, kind of cabbage, egg, and other ingredients pancake topped with sauce, was delicious. I went for the oysters topped pancake, popular in the island. It was delicious, made in front of you, delivered with superb service, extraordinary experience. To be added, many local people went there for lunch, so it means is a good place indeed for eating. If you are in Miyajima, go there for a good local experience.
