I had asked my cousin to make the reservations for this restaurant for me for our splurge dinner in Osaka. We had our own tatami room looking out onto a rock garden. I am glad I went with her because when we arrived, after our crab leg appetizer and crab sashimi second course, two large baskets of raw vegetables, mushrooms,... More

I like crab. I grew up eating large Pacific Ocean crab, went to college eating Maryland blue crab, lived in Asia eating soft shell crab and shanghai hairy crab. But THIS crab blew the others away! Just had a couple BBQ take out crab they offer on the outside of the restaurant instead of sitting inside for a full meal.... More

The food is good, the service is good...all is good. But please do reservation before you come. And dont worry, they receive any kind of credit cards if im not mistaken.

We have been to this restaurant by reading reviews from here. The service is normal (based on general Japanese quality). They might be very busy with a huge number of visiter. With about 8000yen for each, you can enjoy a set with different cooking style. For those who are not familiar with Japanese sashimi (raw seafood), please consider order crab... More

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
