Great family dinner

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.

Long time at both lunch and dinner. Have to go early to get a seat. Food good as always. Love the fresh crab meal.

Finally had lunch at this restaurant today after trying unsuccessfully to get a table on two other occasions. Perhaps it was our expectation that this restaurant would be good given the long queues, but our experience failed to live up to our expectations. We had the crab shabu shabu, one of the set lunches and a plate of fried crab.... More

I haven't tasted every type of crab there is, but this is probably one of the best. On street level they have a stall that sell charcoal crab claws (about 700 yen for two claws from memory). So we tried this first and whilst it sounds pricey, I felt it was worth it as it was cooked well, juicy and... More

It's the restaurant with the giant moving crab on Dotombori Street, and with the front stall selling take-away crab legs that looked so enticing, we decided to have an early dinner here. The set menu ranges from about Y7000 with a variety of crab dishes cooked in different ways. Between three of us, one set wouldn't have been enough, so... More

Need advance booking. Crab is fresh even the soy sauce is delicious but a little pricey. One experience is fine.

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 shabu set... 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
