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

We were really happy with this grill. It is a modern take on a traditional dotonbori, so the kitchen is open and you can watch them cook. The tables have a grill in the middle so your food stays warm after it is delivered. When they ask say you want all the toppings :-)

We had seen Chibo earlier & indeed the queue was insane. Later on, it was 10pm, we are full but still insist to try the best okonomiyaki since we about to left Osaka the next morning. We waited for an hour before the staff passed the menu. We choose the best seller okonomiyaki & unfortunately because we forced to eat... More

The basic okonomiyaki was good, the one that ranked as number 1 in their menu (can't recall the actual name), but another one with noodles in undercooked and tasteless. So just go for the "numeber 1". The place meanwhile is spacious and the service was good. The shop is very well organized and systematic. Long queue but very fast that... More

I really liked this restaurant despite the queue to get in. Fortunately there are about 5 floors, so the queues go pretty quickly, but still expect to wait! Atmosphere is great inside and they play cool music. Staff were friendly and the good was good. think I prefer Hiroshima style okomiyaki though sorry.
