The place does not have in dine service. Everything is for take away. Though it is fast food, but it is quite good. I like the warm gyoza as well as the room temp sweet meatballs. Next time will try the pao.

This is the best pork bun and siew mai dumplings that i have ever tasted. Its big, juicy japanese version of what we used to eat in Singapore. The meat inside the bun and dumplings is so fresh that you can finish the whole bun...More

Ordered 1x meat bun at JPY 170. Slightly expensive as compared to Singapore (perhaps it is due to the small packet of wasabi and hand towels). It is tasty but does not make me crave for it a second time.

Their pork bun taste very different from Chinese char siew bao. Definitely nicer than char siew bao. You gonna try this when you are in Osaka.

Cheap and delicious steamed pork buns. The filling is minced pork and onions. ¥340 for two large buns (mimimum purchase btw). Comes beautifully packaged with mustard sauce. An affordable snack. Must try if you see the store in your Osaka travels.

We went here for the typical bao but we also liked the other things we tried. Personally I was in love with the sweet and sour pork but I also felt that the other food was good as well.

We decided to try these out as we heard they were wonderful and a must try. We each got two and whilst they were definitely tasty, I wouldn't say they are a must try. We have had other buns in Japan which were just as...More
