At 20.00 no people waiting for the entrance so we sat down and asked for the Okonomiyaki with everything on it. ¥ 1.500 for a plate and what a combination, what a dish! Enough as a diner. In 20 minutes we were gone, but what an experience. Not hard to find. Entering the north entrance of the station it is... More

We were in Japan for a total of 12 nights, so we planned for a few cheaper meals in between the more expensive meals. Mitchan was one of our cheaper meals and it was perfect. We did not try any other okonomiyaki on our trip, so we can't compare it to other places, but we DX special and thought it... More

In the basement of the JR train station. Go early as a line begins to form later during dinner hours and the restaurant is rather small. Cash only. No credit cards.

The line was long, but moved rapidly (10 min tops). Also the waitress took our order in line, which sped up the process. However, the 3-star rating is because the okonomiyaki was not very good. It was not bad, but it was missing the variety of flavours and "kick" that I have tasted in other restaurants.

I visited there before 18, but I had to wait for 30 minutes. So you have to go as early as you can. I sat in front of counter, I can see how to cook Okonomiyaki!! A clerk asked me how he brought Okonomiyaki to me. On dish or teppan. Teppan is a hot plate. I chose on dish but... More

After visiting the Hiroshima Castle, I had built up an appetite and headed to Mitchan Sohonten Hatchobori for lunch to try a Hiroshima specialty, okonomiyaki. Just look for an arcade and it’s facing the street. They also have an English menu. I got a seat at the bar which is awesome because you don’t just get your meal, you can... More

Went here with our guide not really knowing what we would be eating but wow delicious !! If you can stand the heat sit at the counter and watch the chef at work, the okonomi-yaki was lovely made even better by watching him prepare it , 3000 yen for 2 with pork .

This was by far one of the best places we have visited in Japan. We had to wait in line for around 10 minutes but it moves fast. Definitely worth the wait! Must try as it could be the original and the best in Hiroshima! Apparently famous according to the locals. We were the only tourists in the place and... More

Soba, egg, green onion, cabbage, pork and plenty of other option goodies topped with Kabayaki sauce makes for a delicious, sharable meal ... especially on a rainy or cold day when you've got the right person to chat with. Be ready, one is enough to share ... unless you're Kobayashi of course, then by all means, try them all! The... More

Big portions, so be ready to share. Had the soba seafood one, and it was amazing! Sampled a few other a la carte menu like the fried rice and beef, but nothing comes close to the Okonomiyaki.
