So i visited this restaurant on a Friday night. Naturally there was a waiting list, with over an hour wait. I tell you now, put your name down on the list and go wander off to Shinsaibashi or something, because this place is definitely worth the wait. As soon as you go up the lift, you're greeted by one of... More

Just adjacent to the Donburi area, a whole-crab dinner serving a 9 crab dishes prepared in different ways. We have chosen hot pot so it becomes the main dish, while the sashimi was very fresh and nice! I always think the best of all is the final congee served with the hot pot soup and rice, absorbed all the essence... More

They claim outside that it's kaiseki. It's well executed and I have no complaints but the quality I would never describe as kaiseki. It's pricey but I'd say that the materials were the major part. It was all crab - boiled, sashimi, grilled, sushi, savoury custard, tempura, soup but it was served with such rapidity that the hot dishes got... More

One of the top mission during our recent visit to Osaka was to have a taste of famous crab at the Kani Douraku restaurant. We were not disappointed. The place exceeded our expectations! When we reached the place to make a reservation, waiting time for a table was 2 hours. We decided to walk around the Dotonbori street during the... More

Busy restaurant at a prime location next to the bridge over the canal at Dotonburi. Went for lunch without reservation and got a queue number and told to come back 45 mins later. We were shown a Japanese style corner table on the 4th floor with a nice view of the bridge over the canal. Ordered the traditional multi course... More

We couldn't miss the giant crab sign while walking through Osaka so we decided to give this place a try. To be honest I'm not particularly a big fan of crab but my spouse, a seafood enthusiast, was very happy with the meal and found the crab very tasty and fresh. So the rating here is not based on my...

We reserved a table on level 4 by the window. Great view. Traditional setting on tatami, yet modern at the same time as we can still sit comfortably like how we sit on a bench. Had really good experience there. There's English menu and staff are dressed in kimono. Crab is so fresh and juicy that we ordered extras. A... More

We arrived in Dotombori for lunch with our three kids after a morning of shopping, very casually dressed. The restaurant has a very luxurious and formal setting but at no time did the staff make us feel we where not properly dressed. The staff is very professional and really making sure your meal experience is the best. Of course all... More

We ordered a set menu for three that had a variety of different crab and cooking methods. There was steamed crab, grilled crab, crab sashimi, crab sushi and crab innards warmed over a candle. The set featured both snow crab and king crab, and also included miso soup, rice, chawanmushi and fruit for desert. All of the crab was extremely... More

This is the 2nd time we go there. Last time we went for lunch while we had dinner tgis time. Service and food are good. The professional waitress there taught you how to enjoy each course with simple English. It would be better if you maje a booking and try to reserve the window seat which provide you with an...
