It may have been the few asahi's we had, but this place was unreal. A true Hiroshima experience. Ask for a seat at the grill. Have a beer at the bar across the road if you need to wait. The girls there were lovely.

This is a great place to have okonomiyaki. I have had it a few times before, and I never really saw the appeal. This place has changed it for, their food is cooked to perfection. Staff is friendly and accommodating, one of the best meals I have had in japan.

No doubt about it, this place is where we had the best Okonomiyaki (Hiroshima-yaki) in the whole of Japan. So tasty, and such a nice atmosphere in the restaurant! Craving for a piece just writing about this place now! Must visit!!

We really enjoyed Hassei and would recommend it. It is the consummate hole in the wall that only TA could identify for you. We are a family of four and enjoyed the back table, writing on the walls and food served on the hot table. The staff was terrific with us as we fumbled with English. The local food is... More

Got into Hiroshima a bit late and was looking for places that would be open. Hassei was super excellent in every way. Food was made on a grill right in front of you in massive portions that will definitely ensure that you're full. Lots of cabbage, and my buddy got the special and all the extras was delicious. Very reasonably... More
