“Amazing Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き, o-konomi-yaki) in a bus station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

Among the best okonomiyaki places I have been in Japan. A local favorite where foreigners will be welcomed. Try to go outside of the standard lunch hour (12-1pm) in order to minimize your wait. You will leave full and your wallet will not be seriously impacted.

“Delicious, entertaining and cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

A previous review (November 1, 2009) caused us to search out this restaurant located on the top (restaurant) floor of the bus terminal. The restaurant is simple, but excellent. My wife and I had okonomiyaki with sea food (which made it more expensive) but it was marvelous. The waitrs shouted everytime someone came in. We ordered by pointing to an entry on the menu since our Japanese is very elementary. We enjoyed the scene, people coming and going, the waiters and cooks shouting and the general good humor.

“Delicious & Cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2009

This cute restaurant is tucked in the corner of the restaurant floor of the Fukuoka Bus Centre. Walk in, and you will be asked “How many people”. Indicate with your fingers how many people you have in your party and you’ll be lead to a table. The waitress will then place a “menu” on your table – a receipt type piece of paper that lists everything in Japanese. Look below for translations (but be aware that the copy in the restaurant is purely Japanese!). Point to what you want, and they’ll start cooking it. You can watch your dinner being cooked over at the grill. If you order okonomiyaki, it will be bought to your table already cut into squares. Top with your preferred amount of okonomiyaki sauce and mayonnaise, and dig in!

No English is spoken here, but everyone is really friendly, the food is fabulous and cheap, and you can get a drink with your meal, perfect.

I have translations of the menu at my blog http://www.shhdtm.com/2009/10/24/review-fukiya-okonomiyaki-restaurant/
