Paid 50USD for a portion! The ticket machine is a scam and the employees are unwilling to do anything. I’m 1000% sure I out in a 10.000¥ bill as I don’t have any other bills at all! I even saw a “1” on the bill...right before I inserted it! I ordered Takoyaki for 650¥ and only received 4,350¥ back. I confronted the staff and he went back to the machine to check. The machine says I put in a 5000¥ bill which is definitely not correct! Be aware and better take a video of you inserting the bill if you gonna order there. The Takoyaki were quite good but not worth the 5,650¥ I paid for it!!!More

Ordered the one with sauce and mayo: 4/5 🥳 Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside! Could not ask for more in a takoyaki and it makes for a good snack on a cold day in Osaka!

Carbo overloaded but worth the calories! I’m in a nutrient plan to lose weight, so carbo is limited to certain %. But it was delicious. So go for it. A tip here, share it with your friends, you don’t have to eat them all. I...bought 8pcs and share half of it with my sister. We shared!More

We were doing our own walking tour of Osaka having visited Shinsekai and tsutenkaku Tower then onto Houzenji shine (moss covered Buddha) and finally the Glico sign posted. We saw many people outside this takoyaki. The cooks were cooking outside their stall and people were...milling around so did we. You purchase you from a vending machine. The octopus were fluffy and super delicious.More

Delicious takoyaki easily found by the giant takoyaki ball in Dotonbori. Queue is sometimes long but fast moving. Pick and pay your order at the machine and watch them cook while waiting.

Takoyaki is a must-eat when you are in Osaka. This restaurant has a big 3D signboard that you won't miss if you are in Dotonbori. Always a queue for take-away. Very flavorful and hot. Must try if you are there.

It’s a decent osaka style takoyaki, gooey on the inside and but this is sprinkled with crunchy bits outside to give it a nice texture. Sadly I feel they put too much ginger and it ends up overpowering everything else. So for those of you...who love the ginger taste will enjoy this takoyaki.More

This shop is always full of ppls. There are both takeaway and dine in. Even though there were quite a lot of free seats inside, the staff would still ask you to line up outside for a few minutes before leading you in. I am...not sure if it is because they would like to let other customers think that they are famous so many ppls are lining up for that.🤷🏻‍♀️ Anyways, I ordered a set of takoyaki with the original flavor. They were ordered to make but they were so soft when served. It would be much tasty if they are more crunchy. Actually there are many this kind of shops ard Shinsaibashi. I suggest you try other shops.More

My intention of Dotomburi is to try this famous takoyaki. But yes, it was not what I expected. I ordered a classic one. Their takoyaki is quite soft but not crispy outside. It feels like it's soft for the whole takoyaki. I preferred the takoyaki...shop in front of Osaka castle than this one.More

This was our first experience with takoyaki. I think the batch I had was really undercooked. We tried another time and it was good. So I have to give this an average rating. There was good flavor and the tako was very soft.
