Excellent Cheese Cake!

The cheesecake at Uncle Rikuro is really good! Will always drop by and buy one back when I'm in Osaka, The strawberry roll is very delicious too! Only on sales during certain season.

Ordered the set with coffee and a slice of cheesecake for around 5 dollars. If I was put to a blind tasting, I'd say this tastes less like cheesecake and more like soft gelatinous scrambled eggs. This place was recommended to us by a local, saying it is Osaka's famous cheesecake. We walked past it a few days earlier and... More

My partner and I went here on our last day in Japan after it was recommended by a local and we read the great reviews. It was sadly a disappointment. I think it's best not to go expecting anything resembling traditional cheesecake but rather something that is a mix between spongecake and sweet scrambled eggs. But not as flavoursome. It... More

If you want American style cheesecake go to America, this Japanese style cheesecake is the bomb. It is light, fluffy and melt in your mouth like a souffle, it has a mild sweet eggy flavor with some raisins on the bottom. They are so light its dangerous as you can eat one so easily. especially when you would pay twice... More

We join the queue and we hear the bell ringing and I can see that hot freshly bake cheesecake are out and within less then 15... More

We had one of this every night while we were in Osaka. That's how good it is. Japanese cheese cake is different. Soft...not firm. It simply melts in the mouth. The texture and test is just right....simply delightful. At Yen 648odd...it can't go wrong. Great for a snack anytime of day.

We came here with a recommendation from my Japanese friend who loves cheesecake and raved about it. She says that they are well known in Osaka for their cheesecake. However, Japanese cheesecake is definitely different and is not firm or cake-like at all. It was very fluffy & light and tasted extremely eggy. There are raisins baked in the bottom... More

I was so excited to find a place that did cheesecake that was gluten free, only to buy an entire cake that is more like an egg souffle. If you are looking for New York style cheesecake, this is not it. If you are looking for the taste of cheese and cream, this is not it. It's neither cheesy, nor... More
