Great Resteraunt

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

We found this restaurant through tripadvisors app and thought we should tried it. We were a party of 4 and we were sitted in at a table with a hot surface. We where brought an english menu and tried to order through that. Everything tasted great and service was fast. We used google translate for a bit more communication with... 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

I would strongly recommend this restaurant and try to get a counter seat if you can. We got 4 seats at the counter and got to watch the preparation of the okonomiyaki and then eat off the grill. Their English was good enough to point out our options on the menu (and there was a little English on the menu,... More

Went here tonight and it was great!! Amazing food, so tasty, lovely staff, great atmosphere. Head chef took great care of us, team obviously had good camaraderie and this came through in the lovely meal we had. We had one of the signature pancakes, slightly altered to add cheese and a side of mushrooms. Was all excellent. If in Hiroshima... More

Great atmosphere, great people, great food! I really recommend people check out this place while in Hiroshima. First and best okonomiyaki we had during our visit to Japan (we ate at two other places during our travels). Hiroshima special has cabbage in it and it's so yum. We also tried the egg, Asian greens and pork one and that was... More
