It is more expensive than the other places in shinsekai serving kushikatsu (deep fried skewers)...expect to wait a bit but they are very efficient...I would recommend one of the sets with 9 to 15 skewers...everything was very tasty...

I'm a Japanese food junkie. I can eat it every day. But of course no one makes Japanese food like the Japanese, and their fried stuff in their signature sauce is just sooo good. I got thw biggest set and though humongous was enjoyable to the end. in the middle of Osaka there are 2 Darumas; one on Dotonburi with... More

Kushikatsu is so delicious. How can it not be? A variety of comestibles on skewers dipped in batter then fried to be sauced up and eaten. Daruma is a great friendly restaurant where food comes fast, delcious and cheap. I tried so many skewers. I would definitely recommend the cheese, beef tongue and octopus, but if you can get them...

One of must try street food in Dotonbori is Daruma, a kushi katsu restaurant only in Osaka. Kushi katsu is like yakitori satay but in fried with katsu batter. There are many choices of katsu satay but you can choose their set menus if you not sure what you want & the price is also cheaper.

「串カツ」Kushikatsu, fried food on a stick is enjoyed by dipping it in a bowl of Katsu Sauce before eating (often accompanied by largely chopped lettuce). Popular in 「ジャンジャン横丁」Janjanyokochou, Ganso Kushikatsu Daruma is a well known franchised store which can be found in many areas. Often linked as "Osaka 「串カツ」 = Daruma" to the locals. Due to it`s well known popularity,... More

Well for me I think it is just a normal deep fried food in sticks although I must say the batter is rather crispy. If you are not sure what to eat just go for the set meal which consist of 8 - 15 types of difference fried meat, yam, prawns, etc. The set came with a bowl of braised... More

Started queuing before the shop open at 11 a.m. I was shocked to see the queue already starting to form at 10.30am. Once in, we just started ordering and food was served fast. NO 2 DIPPING on the sauce..delicious food.

This was a great experience having lunch here. Cosy and friendly service. Had to wait a while for a table but it was well worth it. The skewers we chose were all great... a tip is to skip the set and just choose what you like. Chicken meatballs, gizzard, octopus, squid tentacles, quails eggs, beef etc... everything we ordered was... More

First visit, get recommendation from hotel people, I think the food is really nice. I like the pork katsura and the one with prawn. Overall it's really tasty. But it's a long que to get in. But it's worth to try
