It was a very unique sign in front of the restaurant for 120 minutes waiting for an unspecified queue, but the front desk staff was beckoning to us once they realized we were looking disappointed. We are fortunate to try this restaurant without reservation. The restaurant is super busy but it is very clean ... try it in the bathroom... More

The most succulent crab meat I've had. Meat was sweeter than any I've tried in the past. Ordered the package that featured crab prepared or cooked in different ways. Sashimi, grilled, boiled, and shabu shabu style. The grand finale was the crab done congee style. They also sell their grilled crab along the frontage for those who are unable to... More

You can't miss this place because of the giant moving Crab Icon as its signboard. In fact there are two identical shops, one at each end. We looked through the menu and decided that the price for crabs was too high. So we decided to do take-away. There are various options - BBQ crab (smell was tantalising), cold crab pincers,... More

When I started planning my trip to Japan and I saw pictures on Dotonbori I just had to come here whilst in Osaka..... What a disappointing experience! Firstly it was a 2 hour wait - they gave me a ticket with a time on it and asked me to come back at the designated time. I was also eating on... More

I went to the same restaurant in Sendai. There are a lot of different plates made with "kani". At first sight the prices seem a little bit higher but it is a lot of food (we asked for a set) and everything was delicious and some are prepared in the table. I recommend it if you like fresh seafood.

If you love crab, then you'll love this restaurant. A couple weeks prior to our arrival, we made reservations on their website, and we were immediately seated when we arrived for our 7:30pm reservation. There seemed to be a large line out the door for people without reservations, so reservations are highly advised. We ordered the "Benton" course, which consisted... More

This is the one of famous restaurants in Dotonbori for eating crab. If you want to have a dinner in here. You need to book before the dinner time. After you get in the restaurants you can see there are some waitress dressed in the Japanese style costumes. You need to take off your shoes and sit as a Japanese... More

I love crabs. What better way to have a Japanese set where you get to experience all the different ways one can eat crab in Japan. Kanidouraku is the place for crabs. Expensive but hey, you're on holiday and it CRAB! Service could be better especially seeing that they have 3 branches at the Dotombori area catering to tourist. Gave... More
