We loved the meal we had at Chibo and understand why there is so often a queue. We opted for one of the Chibo sets to share which included a salad and pork omelette which we served first, followed by the okonomiyaki and yaki soba. It was really enjoyable watching the food being cooked right in front of you and... More

I'm no expert on okonomiyaki, but the meal I had here was excellent. Seated at the counter with the food theatre right in front of me was a great experience. After a hot morning exploring the city, it was a pleasure to relax with a draught beer and a delicious Osaka style pancake of beef, prawns, pork, squid and cheese.... More

Absolutely delicious Okonomiyake made in front of you by chefs on a teppanyaki grill. Great performance and experience. The food was outstanding and great value for money.

Delicious Osaka-style okonomiyaki (prefer it to the Hiroshima style). We stumbled across it early afternoon and it was still open for food (some restaurants close at 2 or 3pm) and reasonably busy but got a seat without waiting. Great staff, nice atmosphere and delicious food - a great find. Have already recommended it to other travellers we met.

we had to wait 15 minutes or so to get in and it was worth it. The line goes quickly because it has several floors. Good food, good service. Just nice

We were walking through Dontonbori late one night after a long day of exploring Osaka. After deciding to eat Okonomiyaki, we happened to walk by Chibo where there was a short line. The line got us wondering if it was actually good (we waited about 10-15 mins at 9:00PM). After getting seated, we decided to get a combination meal for... More

We came here as a group from work with a tour guide. We came and were immediately seated on the 4th floor (just us with no other customers). It took 45 mins before our noodles came. Then it took an hour before our first batch of Okonomiyaki, that's 30% of our group. Then we waited another 45 mins for the... More
