I guess I went with high expectations with the many excellent reviews and recommendations from the guide books and travelers etc, so I was a bit disappointed when I went there one night just to try their famous Okonomiyaki. The taste was ok but I've had better ones in Hiroshima. The portion size though was huge. For a girl, it... More

We went here on the recommendation of our tour guide - and we liked it so much we went there the next night! English menus available and the staff speak English. Request without pork if like us you want vegetarian (ignoring the bonito flakes used in the dish). Both the veg only and the noodle okonomiyaki are great, and the... More

We found this awesome little gem tucked away on the 2f of the Esse building. What a treat. Luckily for us, we only had a 5 minute wait and then had the pleasure of sitting right by the chefs preparing our Okonomiyaki. Delicious and highly recommend.

Went here as soon as I got off the train, although I think I took a round about way of getting there. The shocker is that the floor this restaurant is in is made almost entirely of okonomiyaki shops! With that said, Reichan was certainly the busiest of them all and with good reason. This is place is unpretentious and... More

We wait the entire trip in Japan to try these traditional Hiroshima pancakes and we were not disappointed. We wait a short 5 mins at 11:55am and we got a table for four. As others have mentioned, they have an English menu and you order before you sit. Food was delicious and as described. We were all thrilled we ate... More

This place was recommended to us by some friends and I'm glad we went! There was a bug line out the front (we went for dinner) but the line moved quickly and as you wait you can watch the action of the chefs cooking the different types of okonomiyaki. Unfortunately we didn't get a seat at the bar, but the... More

Hidden up an old lift in an unassuming building, this is the best okonomiyaki I've had, all made fresh in front of you. We were quite lucky to get a seat. Owners were very friendly and they do have an English menu if necessary. It's worth playing hide and seek to find this place!

Okonomiyaki in Hiroshima is a must and here at Reichan you can't go wrong. Be wary of a potential wait because lots of people agree. The service is friendly and efficient, the cooking an obvious craft and the mouth watering wait all the worthwhile. This time I had deep fried pork with soba noodles. Regardless Reichan doesn't fail to deliver.... More

Sheraton are usually consistent, this place is no different. Right in the station, so no long commute, but quiet and refined. Corner rooms were great, large sitting area, good sized bathrooms, good aircon. Food in the hotel was good, although the Italian dinner was recycled into lunch the next day, fine by me, others might moan, but it saves waste.... More

Nice location right in ASSE department store in the Hiroshima JR station. Came here in Wednesday dinner and got counter seats immediately. The cooking of Okonomiyaki is slow. It is better to get a counter seat than a table as you can observe the process of making Okonomiyaki. We ordered two different flavor, both delicious but a little too salty.... More
