In addition to the branch mentioned in other reviews, there is one on the restaurant floor of this department store, a bit hard to find as it was not listed on the directory. It is in the rear of the restaurant floor. Very fresh food prepared on a hot surface, with courses featuring mushrooms and beef and egg pancake. One... More

We bumped into this place during our recent visit to Osaka. Walked along the Dotonbori and looked at the menu. Prices seemed reasonable. We didn't realize the restaurant has a view of the canal. Chefs make your order at a central cooking area within view of all diners. They then transfer meal to your table and put food directly onto... More

It may not be do it yourself, but as a food experience it's pretty good. We made a special evening trip from Kyoto , dotonburi is a great food street and so much to choose from. This place seemed a bit corporate, but it was full so must be good. We were given a ringside seat at the hot bar,... More

I decided that I must try okonomiyaki when in Osaka and we hit the jackpot with Chibo. We were there fairly early in the evening and given a choice of sitting at an individual table or sitting up on bar stools at the teppanyaki grill overlooking the chefs. All four of us ordered the same version and sat mesmerised while... More

It's an high-class teppanyaki restaurant just located in dotonbori. They start to serve at 17:00 and you should certainly make an appointment before going there, otherwise, you should wait for an half an hour at least. The restaurant has 5 floors but only one floor is serving teppenyaki, other floors are serving okonomiyaki. We were four people and we chose... More

This place is quite easy to find, when you enter from the river turn left at the place where there is a big moving crab and look for Chibo on your left. The restaurant is divided into floors which serve different menu - okonomiyaki, teppanyaki and a bar. We went on the okonomiyaki floor as it is famous for this... More

This place should really have its rankings bumped up! Excellent authentic atmosphere and food. The chefs were all very attentive and entertaining. Great location too. Just a short 3 minute walk from the Glico Man. Kudos to the team!

I love okonomiyaki and this is probably the best place in Osaka to get, and they have several floors dedicated to okonomayaki so they’ll be plenty of seats. The only negative I can fault the place is that they make the actual pancake for you, and its not the traditional way of making it yourself, although they do serve it... More
