Not meant for hungry foodies.. The minimum waiting time is about an hour. Service is slow as well so another half an hour. Overall experience is ok. Chicken is not too oily, chilli is good too.

The queue was really long, feel like being back in Osaka! But it's worth waiting for though. I especially love the soft steamed chicken they served. Already almost perfect without the source.

Love the chicken, rice ball and chilli. Chicken is very tender. Queue for nearly an hour. Wouldn't advice family with young kids as you have to queue under the sun for quite awhile. Definitely no space in the shop for your stroller.

Be prepare to queue or otherwise be as early as 11am for early lunch. The rice ball is good and the chicken is tender. The restaurant itself is old and dated which give you the original old days charm. You might need to share a table with stranger if you are alone or with less then 4 person.
