We went there on Monday Evening but still need to wait for 40 mins for a table for 2. We shopped nearby before our turn at 8.20pm. We order 2 sets (8-course sets & 6-course sets) but still too much for us! The crab was very fresh & delicious. The different crab dishes were awesome! The service was good though... More

I have been there around 2 pm to avoid crowed so I got the sit next window. View was good. Lunch sets was really good. various crab cooking was served. The crab is little expensive in Korea and Japan. If you come from the country which eat a crab cheaply, you might be disappointed.

I always go there when I am in Osaka. Tasty crab dishes, quick service and simple but nice jp interior. Most of the waitresses nice except one who has been there for years but always grumpy.

The first time I've eaten raw crab.... But it taste quite fresh it tastes like really fresh soft scallop.. The baked cheese crab was good.. The price was quite high but his was quite fine dine and there's a lot of tourist coming here so it's quite touristy . Overall should try a least once if u visit Osaka

Great food, great service! There are a lot of set menus that you can choose from. They have the freshest crab and cooked in different ways for you to enjoy. We had 8 of us and chose the set including steamed, grilled, hotpot and sashimi ect. Everyone of us enjoyed it very much! I haven't been to any other restaurants... More
