Our first okonomiyaki in Osaka and it was delicious. We sat at the counter which I think is the most fun(you get to watch everything get prepared). Friendly staff, excellent food

Absolutely 100% worth the wait, the okonomiyaki here is phenomenal. Staff are so friendly and it is such an awesome experience sitting up at the counter. Can't wait to come back, I can highly recommend this place.

There are many styles of Okonomiyaki from Tokyo (the semi-liquid okonomiyaki called 'monjayaki') to Hiroshima but this place definitely offers the most authentic Osaka-style Okonomiyaki. Super friendly staff. Highly recommend!!!
