If you would like to try some Japanese food that isn't sushi then give this place a go! In the heart of Bloomsbury is this traditional style restaurant that has its heart in Osaka style Okonomiyaki which is basically an omelette with all sorts of...More

We visited for some classic okonomiyaki in a group of 4 and enjoyed it. The food is good and the service was excellent. The only negative was the long wait to eat, which detracted slightly from the experience. We would visit again.

We heard this was a good place to eat traditional Okonomiyaki. Well, it is, but it's obviously not the best service in London. We made sure to book a table by email. When we arrived, they never found our reservation and we had to wait...More

Been going here since 2002 - place is just class. Like a thoroughbred horse that does ballet, writes poetry, plays the sax and cooks Japanese pancakes. The gyoza, buta kimchi itame, sashimi, teppan-yaki, etc. all delicious but for me it's all about the house special,...More

Service was excellent, friendly and helpful. There is a wide ranging menu focused on hearty Japanese food such as Okonomiyaki and Teppan-Yaki. This makes it great for those who might be daunted by the thought of classic Japanese dishes. I can definitely recommend their Sochu...More
