Yummy shabu shabu and zosui

We had made our dinner reservation a month ahead, so we were seated immediately when we arrived. In Hokkaido many years back, we had an all-crab meal too, and had miss the delicious zosui that we had, so we told ourselves, we had to have it again this time. For the 2 of us, we ordered the shabu... read more

Long, long wait to be seated. Worth it if you love crab. Don't hesitate, go for the most expensive set and then add some grilled crab legs. Have the kani sake. It's unique. All crabbie stuff. Excellent.

My husband and I tried this place, we went by for lunch at 11.30 and they gave us a ticket to come back at 12 so it wasn't too long a wait. Mind you this was during the week so not sure if it's different on the weekend. We chose a set lunch menu for 2700 yen which had 6... More

I would not recommend this restaurant because the woman waitress just gave me unforgettable talk. This is the first time I felt bad and upset from Japanese who I have felt friendly and admired. For the food , I don't think it is worthy to wait very long line for the just very simple taste .

We went at 11am and got a ticket for 3:45pm. That's how long the wait is. Is it worth it? If you are a crab lover, then yes it is as they will prepare it many different ways. Although I like crabs, I think the crab sashimi is a waste of the crab meat because the fine aroma of cooked... More

There were certain things that were completely on point for dinner. First was the service. Very nice and polite...yeah I know it's Japan, but it's still pleasant to experience. Second was the private room...so nice and quiet. Dotonbori is busy, busy, busy, so the quiet private room was a nice break . Now to the food. It was just okay.... More

A restaurant recommended by a friend. Each of us ordered a set dinner. The crabs were really nice but it's quite expensive. Worth trying but always long queue. Should go there earlier to grab a ticket/ book in advance if really want to try. Recommend. Nice service also.

For a quick try of the delicious Grilled Alasakan Crab, buy the 700 Yen pack. It is sweet and a must try in Osaka. It's before the Glico Man bridge and directly opposite H&M. Do try the Ichiran ramen along the river. Turn right and you can find it.

We went there on a Wed evening at 5pm to be allocated a queue no. for seating at 8.20pm. The seating is modified japanese style where you would be required to remove your shoes. For non- japanese speakers, they would present you with an iPad if you ask for an English/ other language menu. We ordered one set meal which... More

There were 5 of us (inclusive of 2 small children) and the environment was so nice and pleasant. No doubt it's a very touristy place, the food is still awesome. We ordered two sets and some ala carte to share. Enough food to go around. I recommend the set because it lets you try everything; raw, fried, grilled, bbq, etc.... More
