Great okonomiyaki! The wait can be burdensome but it’s one of the best okomoyaki in Osaka.... Also tried the pork omelette but it wasn’t as good as the okonomiyaki if I’m being honest. Will definitely come here again before I leave Osaka.

Wanted to try Okimiyaki and came to the right place. Made fresh and in front of you and kept warm while you eat on a stove top. Didn’t think I could finish the huge portion but I did. Must must try in Dotonbori

Amazing. The meal was delish. The best meal in our 12 day stay in Japan. They cook the meal right in front of you. Was that good that we made reservations for lunch the next day.

The building has a level dedicated for Muslim and vegetarian guests. This is on Level 7. It was easy to spot the building because they had Muslim workers wearing hijabs at the entrance. The menu is also quite varied. Apart from the okonomiyaki, we also...More

We ordered too much on our visit to Chibo, which probaby doesn't do justice to this place. After you've had a little too much of it, it becomes unappealing. I find the price a little high, considering it's just okonomiyaki. However, this is one of...More
