We dined here as a tour group and enjoyed it. Not sure of the prices as our dinner was part of the tour. There were queues outside the door when we got there, which is a sign that the food is good. Fortunately we had reserved tables. We loved the open kitchen feel, and the BBQ plate in the middle... More

We spotted a line in front of this place at around 1am(?) after loading up on yamazaki, schochu and sake, and decided to try some okonomiyaki before heading back to our hotel. The stuff was not at all bad, it was hot and tasty. The only downside is that the strong smell of okonomiayaki being cooked on the griddle tends... More

There are lots of other okonomiyaki places around , this one is just on a very central area . Not bad at all but very pricey for it

We had a great meal at Chibo in the Shinsaibashi-suji area of Osaka near the Namba subway station. We enjoyed the Okonomiyaki or savory pancake cooked on the griddle in the centre of the table. The portions were a very large pancake or there was an interesting noodle dish. It would be nicer if there was no smoking allowed in... More

My friends and I ate our first dinner in Osaka at Chibo. The okonomiyaki was delicious and the sirloin steak was tender. However the servings was little and the service took some time. Worse of all, diners were allowed to smoke inside the restaurant. The only thing we liked about the restaurant is its proximity to many stores which were... More

The batter and filling at Mizuno down the street is tastier in terms of okonomiyaki and costs less. The line here is much shorter though. It's good but nearby another is better!

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
