This is the second time we're gone to this restaurant and it is stunning for it's variety in crab dishes. Both times we've gone for the lunch time slot although this time we had to put our names down as it was so popular but waiting 50 minutes isn't a problem as you can give your name be allocated a...

I am a very regular visitor to Osaka and I always wanted to go to this restaurant. Finally, I have taken the time to visit this well rated restaurant and must say that I am very disappointed. In my view, this is by no means one of the best restaurants in Osaka and I found it more of a tourist... More

We tried a few crab sets and were generally very happy with the food. But as we arrived late (after 9:30pm) and the store closes at 11:00pm, we weren't given enough time to study the menu. The servers don't speak much English and we had problems communicating -- apparently she was trying to tell us that it's late and they... More

The special thing about this restaurant is, it count on the original taste of the fresh crab itself. If you like original crab taste, this place is a must for you. I recommend a set menu, so that you can taste a various way to serve a crab. It will cost about 8000 yen per set. It's worth to try,... More

Food was super tasty. I never knew crab could be made in so many variations, it's a must-try. And this place is too popular with everyone (locals and tourists) that it made getting a seat quite a wait. If you're willing to wait and crowd around with people at the lobby, it's a must-try.

We traveled to Osaka in March. this restaurant wasn't in our plan but we though we should have something luxury (?) during this trip. So we chose to have the crab meal in Kanidouraku in Dotombori. it was only 15 minutes walk from our hotel. We chose the seasonal menu (cherry blossom period) cost only 3500 yen plus tax for... More

Upon arriving was told that the place was full and needed to wait for 20 minutes. When we were finally called upstairs, half the tables were empty and throughout the meal no one arrived at these empty tables so was not too happy about that. Went there for dinner and ordered the specials set menu of around 8000 yen per... More

I went there with my mum based on the recommendation in the TripAdvisor. And we are not disappointed by it! ☺ Since we are already there and after a long queue wait, we decided to try one set grilled and one set hotpot. And it is Oyishi!!!😋 the crabs were simple so fresh and so sweet!! definitely will go back... More
