We had okonomiyaki in Tokyo but it turns our that the Hiroshima version is very different and this restaurant is a great place to sample it. It's very small and busy so arrive early. The best seats are at the bar so you can see the chefs at work, but avoid the seat next to the door in winter! Portions... More

The okonomiyaki was excellent, but I must say that they do these oysters fried with butter, soy and sake and they are spectacular. I think there was 8 large oysters in the dish for 800yen. I'm going back tomorrow for them again.

From Osaka where the Okonomiyaki was born to Hiroshima, the Omonomiyaki has evolved. Instead of the flour filling, the filling is consisted of good quality soba, partially boiled and then stirfried on the table sized flat cooking surface and right before your very eyes, the different layers of the dish is created.in front of you, if you choose to sit...

We went here to experience Hiroshima okonimiyaki and it was amazing. We had beef rib and praws in mayo teppanyaki and then shared an okonimiyaki - all of it was delicious and cooked right in front of us. The staff made us feel really welcome and the place had a great atmosphere. Not the most obvious place to find, but... More

Small restaurant serving fantastic okonomoyaki. Don't be fooled by the cheap prices into ordering more than one dish per person, the servings are very generous. Spent about 30 AUD for two people including 2 glasses of sake and a beer! Loved it!

This is a very small restaurant so make sure you get there early if you want a seat. We arrived at about 6.30 - 6.45 and by 7pm it was full. We sat where the chefs prepare the meals so that we could see them in action. I recommend doing that but it does get quite hot! The food was... More

Seriously the best Okonomiyaki I have ever had. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful! We ordered 2 different types of Okonomiyaki and the staff asked if we were going to share and we said yes- turns out they will separate the 2 different types and have it served to us! Wow!! What an amazing evening! Get a marker and... More

We went to hassei for dinner on a Saturday night during our one night stay in Hiroshima. And we don't regret it! It is difficult to find, the trip advisor map location is actually one street off the actual location. We ended up asking a lady for directions who happily helped us. We arrived at 20:15 and were politely asked... More
