In looking for good recommendations on various Japanese cuisines, this place was mentioned by friends and it did not disappoint. I was seated at the bar and got a seafood okonomiyaki with bonito flakes. It was awesome to watch them make it in front of us and then, top off the masterpiece with the bonito flakes on top. Because of... More

We went here on our last night in Japan, in search of okonomiyaki in its hometown of Osaka. We were not disappointed! It was the best okonomiyaki of our trip 😊 It was a little pricier than other places we had eaten, but totally worth it!

We ordered the combo meal for 2 people that came with two yaki's. it was delicious and a ton of food! I would recommend this place but it was my first time trying okonomiyaki so I'm not the expert! It did seem a little pricy compared to others in the area though.

We were advised to visit this place to sample the local delicassy of Okonomiyaki. You only need one of these monster omlettes between two. However we did not know this and struggled through one each.

We waited for 5 minutes until they put us in on the bar. Great action by the cooks and interesting service. The food was very good and the workers where very fun.

My boyfriend and I went to Chibo's for dinner. There was a short wait outside before going in, that was ok though because we didn't mind waiting. We ordered okonomiyaki and it wasn't the best we have had but still not bad. The staff were friendly!

Aside from the EXCEPTIONAL FOOD, and the excellent service well representing Japan, (order anything, actually, it's all good. Note: Servings are larger than normal Asian portions), we came here when my son Brayden turned 8. I will never forget Kimura San, one of the wait staff that actually took time and his own money to buy my son a dessert... More

We sat at the counter and were entertained by the chef while he (with a helper) cooked up to 15 pancakes at a time - definitely a born showman. Were introduced to the Japanese savoury pancakes by our guide in Kyoto and instructed to try them in Osaka. Loved them ... and by the number of locals eating there we... More

Had always wanted to try Okonomiyaki, so we came here to give it a try so we ordered the house special called Dotomboriyaki which had Pork, Beef, Squid, Shrimp and Cheese, all full inside a fluffy Pancake wrapping and it was delicious! Very filling and we were happy to give it a go. I don't care if it's a tourist... More
