We came here as we wanted to try Okinomiyaki and we were not left disappointed! The price was reasonable (under 2000 yen for two), and whilst we thought we were going to have to cook our own (a daunting thought) one of the waitresses did...More

Came here 9 years ago! And was so excited to come back to eat those traditional style Okonomiyaki, not only for the atmosphere but for the taste. My only regret but it's personal. Is that it became too famous over the years... Good for them!...More

Loved this place so much we went 2 evenings in a row! You sit on the floor, around a hot plate, and cook your own okonomiyaki. This place is perfect for vegetarians looking for an authentic Japanese meal. The staff were very friendly and helpful....More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

Hi, they’re made with egg but I cannot tell if there is eggless option. I’d say no, to be honest (looking at the menu) but maybe there are some hidden options.
