First thing you may notice is that all the trip advisor reviews are in English. I am all those who want to make food accessible to other cultures so long as they are loyal to their roots. My experience here is they are playing to the ambiance (which is great) but not so concerned about the food. The hibachi grills... More

My family and I finally got to eat okonomiyaki at this terrific little restaurant. The staff were very helpful as we had no idea what we were doing and the other patrons were very helpful by letting us watch what they were doing! My kids were a bit skeptical at first when I suggested this place but after arriving and... More

This is the oldest okonomiyaki restaurant in the district. I am a non-chef, non-Japanese speaking Englishman with not the faintest clue about which end of a griddle is hot, but the staff here are so pleasant and helpful. I am also a vegetarian. This explained, it was no problem for Chef to rustle up the requisite veggie ingredients (no meat,... More

This restaurant is traditional tatami setting (so be prepared to take your shoes off, eat at a low table, and sit on the floor). Menu has loads of okonomiyaki options, and even other eats such as yakisoba. Go for the okonomiyaki! Everything was very fresh, and you can adjust flavor with several sauces and condiments provided. Very reasonable prices, and... More

One of the best dining experience I had in Japan. If you don't know okonomiyaki, it's a sort of delicious pancake with different ingredients like eggs, squid, cabbage, meat etc that you cook on a hot plate. We had to take off our shoes to be seated around a low table with a big hot plate in the middle. You... More

We came across this place because it was advertised in the lonely planet guide (otherwise we wouldn't have find it, since the sign is only in Japanese). The setting is traditional, with low tables on tatamis. There is a big selection of okonomiyaki, which then you do yourself on the hot plate at each table. The staff is very helpful,... More

It's located about a 10-15min walk from Sensoji, and will charm you with its old world atmosphere, good food, and low prices. You'll be sitting in front of a hot plate, and may be left to your own devices if the restaurant is busy. They have an English menu with some instructions on how to cook the okonomiyaki, but we...
