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

Was here for dinner, and tried a few things from the menu - all in all the food was great and had massive portions and the atmosphere (and the staff) were very very friendly,

We had diner here after reading all the great reviews. And we were very happy we chose this restaurant. The food was great. They prepared it right in front of you and then you can eat it from a hot plate. It was the first time for us we ate okonomiyaki and I loved it. The staff was great!!! Highly... More

Very good Okonomiyaki, with very friendly staff who spoke a little English. Managed to get a seat at the counter so got a great experience with the chefs cooking the food on the hot plate infant of us. Will go straight back when in Hiroshima.

I loved this place. We tried to get in early on a Saturday night but the place was booked up until 9.30pm. We were exhausted that day so tried late on the Sunday and got in. Staff were some of the friendliest we've come across and the okonomyaki was the best we've ever had! Would highly recommend. Great value too... More

Hiroshima is well known for its Okonomiyaki and we were told this place was one of the best. However we did have to wait a little for a table as we did not book. The place is only very small but is very popular with both tourists and locals. It was the best Okonomiyaki i have had by far and... More
