We stopped at this restaurant after reading reviews. We wanted to try something traditional, as Okonomiyaki is available all over the place in Japan, but since it originated in Hiroshima, we wanted to try it there. This place did not disappoint. Its a small restaurant....If there aren't seats inside, you still order while you wait outside (menu is also in English). Once we entered the restaurant, we were able to watch the chefs prepare multiple okonomiyakis at at time. We sat at a table where there was a griddle which was used to put the okonomiyaki on to stay warm while you eat it. It is big and filling, but we all had our own and ate the whole thing! We tried eachothers, I wish I could remember which kinds we ordered, all I know is my son ordered one with cheese and that one I really liked. Also the sauce of the table (the brown sauce) is really good on top! Overall, I thought this restaurant was a great overall experience with a great taste! I would go back. It was also fairly easy to find, very close to Peace Park.More
We heard a lot of things about Hiroshimayaki, the Hiroshima approach to Okonomiyaki, and a short Google research brought us to Nagata-ya and we didn't regret a single second of it. We had to wait in line for 30 minutes and we were doubtful if...it were worth it, but it definitely was. Not only that they have plenty of options to choose from (after all, Okonomiyaki means: grilled as you like it), they also cater to vegans and vegetarians and have an English menu.
They are really organized and already take your order before you are seated - so once you are seated, you receive your order in no time. Staff is really attentive and friendly. You can really customize your Okonomiyaki and the portions are huge! They keep you full until the evening.
The location of the place is also really handy: close to the touristic area (peace memorial park, several museums)...
We loved it and in case we'll come back to Hiroshima, this place will see us again!More
A perfect place to decompress after visiting the Peace Museum. It gets crowded but our school group was lucky and we were seated quickly. Of course the okonomiyaki is delicious, and you don't have to spend Miyajima time dining (that is better used for walking...and shopping there).More
It was my first Hiroshima style okonomyaki, so I can’t compare with others... but it was AMAZING!! I sat at the bar, so I could see them preparing the food. So it was very good food plus cooking show. Price very reasonable. Staff friendly (speaking...a bit of English). Highly recommended.More
it's just meters away from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. It is advisable to go with time because it is usually full, I went only wait 15 minutes and I could sit at the bar where they prepare the dish, the truth was an excellent experience....There are 5 or more cooks that prepare the dishes in quantity and at a pace that can only be obtained with a lot of practice and professionalism. Okonomiyaki is cooked on a griddle from flour dough, water, cabbage and egg. It is usually served with green onions (in my case), sauces, meat, etc. There are many different ways to use it. Sometimes it is known as the "Japanese omelet"
Without a doubt, it's one of the best dishes I've tasted in my entire stay in Japan, even though it was something completely new, I don't dislike it at all and it doesn't fall heavy either.
The attention was good, as it is a quite busy place capable of not being so "personalized" but I don't usually get fussy in those aspects unless I have a bad experience in the treatment/attention.More
Ordered two different okonomiyaki - the special one and the seafood without pork. The first one was not tasty and second one was pretty good. Prefer the ones in Osaka actually. Get a counter seat - it’s fun to watch them prepare. Arrived at around...1140am, thinking that we could skip lunch crowd but had to wait around 30 minutes in the end. Queue was longer after 12.More
Every Hiroshima resident has their own favorite "local" okonomiyaki shop, one that they have often been going to for years and they are probably unlikely to go to somewhere like Nagata-ya. For visitors, however, Nagata-ya is one of the places I highly recommend.
And, if...you are vegetarian or vegan, Nagata-ya is a must. This place has been honing their menu and their service towards international visitors and vegetarians for over 10 years, and it shows!
A couple of other okonomiyaki places are flirting with vegetarian and vegan options, but they have a ways to go in their understanding of the concepts and in flavor profiles.
You may have to line up (sometimes for a while) - omnivores might think about hitting another spot, but vegetarians and vegans should definitely stick it out!More
Interesting question. Offhand I would say the sauce does not contain alcohol. Otofuku is a Hiroshima-based company that makes okonomiyaki sauce. While I do not know whether Nagata-ya uses Otofuku's sauce, it's reasonable to... More
Interesting question. Offhand I would say the sauce does not contain alcohol. Otofuku is a Hiroshima-based company that makes okonomiyaki sauce. While I do not know whether Nagata-ya uses Otofuku's sauce, it's reasonable to assume the sauce recipe is similar. Otofuku's okonomiyaki sauce is available commercially in the US and lists the following ingredients: tomato, date, onion, apple, carrot, peach, orange, garlic, water, high fructose corn syrup, vinegar, sugar, hydrolyzed soy protein, salt, modified food starch, soy sauce, yeast extract, guargum, shiitake mushroom, caramel coloring. Anyway if you have dietary restrictions, consider asking your hotel staff to write your dietary restrictions down in Japanese on a piece of paper to avoid any confusion. :)
