“Excellent crab cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

If you love crab, this is the place to be. Its a full course crab cuisine. The food is delicious and the place is easy to get to, right in Dotonbori. You cant miss it, they have a huge crab signboard outside.
Get a table on the top floor, you have view of the canal and its nicer too. But its a smoking floor, so be warned.

“YUMMY and FRESH!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

This is the second time I've been to this restaurant and I simply loved it! Even when crabs are not really in season in Japan the crabs they served are still extremely fresh.

I definitely recommend the hot pot and for the more adventurous try their sashimi and crab "guts". It sounds like offal but it's extremely extremely yummy and you will miss out if you don't try it.

The service was so-so, they seemed to always try and hurry us up for no reason.

For more recommendations on what to eat in Kani Doraku, please check out my blog www.pigouttravels.wordpress.com

“Read about it here, and happy I went to try it for myself!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

If you like snow crab, I'll love this restaurant. Don't cheap out at the last second, it's worth spending a bit more for the set menus they put together...they put a big bowl in the middle of the table, and you basically cook your soup and veg and crab right there! They help if you have no ida what you're doing (which I didn't) but offer to let you figure it out on your own if you prefer (which I certainly didn't;)

Great tasting food, nice views, and a very cool and authentic feeling atmosphere (not including the views, which are of a busy and neon bright area in the city...but provide a great Blade Runner style background to the interior of the very traditional looking eatery).

Bill came out to about €50 a head with a couple of drinks. Enjoy! p.s. think last orders were at 9:30pm...so don't go too late...
