Charming little place

We visited this place after seeing the excellent trip advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. Friendly service and beautiful food at a great price. Unfortunately there were no seats left at the counter so we couldn't see the chefs in action but we were able to catch glimpses of them preparing... read more

We went there yesterday at lunchtime. Only 3 tables used. Atmosphere not great. Cooking lady was watching TV while preparing our food. We ordered a spicy Korean pork dish and a squid dish. To be honest, not really special. The pork stand for a couple of very thin but fat slices of bacon added to cabbage, soy sprouts an a... More

The staff were super helpful and have a book with pictures and English translation of the menu, we had Okonomiyaki (700¥) and a potato,... More

Such a great setting. The chefs are constantly working with many okonomoyaki on the go at once. If possible sit at the counter so that you can watch them work because it is truly fascinating. The food is cheap, delicious and as traditional as you could ask for. Hiroshima is famous or it's okonomoyaki and prior to this experience I... More

We had Okonomiyaki. Very goid plate, served in a "pan-table". Nice staff, friendly. Unexpensive and recommendable.

When you go in you're greeted and you can sit at the Bar or at a Table, the Bar area is connected directly into the skillet, to where you can watch your food being made. There is English menus available, so you know what you're ordering. I ordered the Traditional Hiroshima Food, and it turned out to be very good.... More

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 little gem is worth the trip to Hiroshima (well almost), one of the best and certainly the cheapest food we had in Japan. Its not pretty but it is superb comfort food. Just check out the pictures and don't get too hung up on the names of the dishes. we had the large fried dish made on a pancake... More
