Crab of all cooking styles

Collected our ticket at 18:15 for a table at 18:50. We loved the crabs! Our favourite was the strong-tasting gooey stuff in the top shell, it sounded disgusting but very presentable when arrived at the table. Grilled crab claws and legs were my love's favourite as well, while I preferred them... read more

Restaurant was very busy on a recent weekend night and reservations is a must. While waiting for our table, restaurant had sign outside indicating fully booked and we saw many people turned away. Food was good and we enjoyed ourselves but perhaps over priced and bit over rated.

We took my parents out for dinner to Kani Doraku while visiting Dōtonbori. Since I read somewhere that this place is busy, we made a reservation a few days prior to our visit. They have several restaurants close-by in Dōtonbori area (within walking distance!) I think there are three branches: Honten (main), Nakamise (center), and Higashi (East), so make sure... More

We wanted to enjoy some delicious restaurant snow crab on our last night in Osaka. We ordered one of the sets with the hotpots and another set which had raw crab. It was quite enjoyable but if I had the choice to go back again I wouldn't. The raw crab was an interesting new experience but the dishes were mainly... More

Please go early to avoid the long waiting line. Food was good. I just wish their waiters can explain how to eat the food in a better way.

All the menus are crabs, covered the pot, sushi, deep-fried, baked roasted, Chawanmushi, sashimi. Dinner package is more expensive, but rich dishes, two people together to eat a sufficient. Recommended hot pot, soup is delicious, with crab, vegetables, etc. Recessed tatami very comfortable, very friendly waiter.

We had a nice family dinner there last night. There were 12 of us and they placed us in a nice room upstairs. Good food, building is a bit old but the decor was appropriate.
