Excellent food. Had to wait an hour for a table but worth the wait. Met some locals who spoke almost no English but tried their hardest to entertain me the entire time I was there. Highly recommend

First of all they don't have smiles on their faces when they make eye contact with costumers like they are forced to do the work . Secondly, I ordered spicy okonomiyaki and what i received was very sweet . I am surely not visiting here again and this is what I recommend you all .

My group of 8 friends went to Hassei for dinner right before they opened and the staff were kind enough to seat all of us before they 'officially' opened. We only had one Japanese speaker in our group but the staff were great with English and everyone managed to order for themselves with ease. The food was absolutely fantastic. The... More

So glad we managed to get a table, this place was truly atmospheric. The food is delish, especially the okonomiyaki (although I controversially prefer the Kyoto version) and the staff is super friendly! Make a reservation, this place is always super busy!

If you're going to hit only one Okonomiyaki place, this is a solid choice. I mean, at some point the difference between the 'best', 'second best' and 'third best' Okonomiyaki restaurant in Hiroshima is going to be personal preference...not that one is horrible and the other is outstanding. That being said, this was outstanding. As a party of two showing... More

So we are a family of 4, with an 18 and 17 yo who love their food. Had a bit of difficulty finding the place - but google maps sorted that. It is quite small but such a great feel as soon as you are inside and the staff were soooooo friendly and efficient. Then to the food - yummy!!... More

It's true, one of the best Okonomiyaki restaurants in town; when it's not crowded, service is fast and good, if it is several people waiting all slow down. Bad thing is place is so small so I recommend going weekdays and if you have to go at weekends go there by lunch.

Wow, just wow! Really cheap feed, Okonomyaki is something I had never tried before and I loved it. Great atmosphere - quaint restaurant where the walls are littered with comments from people all over the world. Extremely friendly staff who even walk you out after you've e paid to see you off. If I'm ever in Hiroshima again I will... More

This small typical restaurant's specialty is the okonomiyaki, a sort of fried omelette with inside all that your stomach can desire, we had one with mixed fish and one with meat, they were both very good for a reasonable price. Just be prepared, this plate is huge and you must dedicate lot of time to digest it :)
