You can't really miss the restaurant in Dotombori with it's prominent crab deco. The restaurant is frequented by many tourist and I was a little sceptical about its food, thinking that it'll be a typical tourist trap, but I still decided to try it cos it's supposed to be famous. I visited the restaurant just before six and didn't have... More

The service was quite good. We had the crab shabu shabu set and crab tempura set. Very delicious and not too heavy. Liked the way they put rice in the soup at the end and made a delicious porridge. Was quite expensive but worth it.

Was looking for a place to eat on TripAdviser when I reached Osaka, and I saw Kanidouraku. Thus decided to give it a try since the king crab signboard at the entrance looks interesting :) Well, I didn't regret making that choice! My husband and I each ordered a set and the crabs in the set were cooked in a... More

Make a reservation weeks in advice thus we need not join the queue way before restaurant was opened. Was ushered in while the rest queue outside to wait for doors to be opened. Every single dish was delicious, was craving for more even after I finished the course. Wonderful experience

Food and prices are ok. I find crabs in Hokkaido better ... Fresh and sweet. Whereas in Osaka, the meat is less sweet and tasted frozen or not live crabs. Remember to eat crabs while in Hokkaido.
