“Simply Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

The staff at our hotel (Royal Park) recommended this place to us as we were hungry for some okanamiyake and it did not disappoint!
Meals were made fast, were cheap and tasted amazing! some of the best i have had. The staff were very nice and welcoming and the English menu saved us a lot of time with translations!
Our meal for two cam too 2200yen including drinks and tax, Amazing! only negative for us is like many places in japan you can smoke inside, lucky for us no one lit up til just before we left.

Additionally for all you alcoholics out there, they have a unlimited drinks for 2 hours offered at just 2100! a great place to start a night out!

“Mmmmmmmm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

First time trying ominyaki and it was definitely worth a try. This was just up from our hotel the royal park, food is filling and tasty. My fiancé particularly liked it.
Atmosphere was good, English menu available. Would recommend.

“Delicious okonimiyaki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

You should try this regional speciality if you love trying out Japanese food. Seriously tasty. We loved the versions with lots of leeks, so good we went back again the next day. Staff friendly, English menu available and six branches around Kyoto to choose from.

“Not Amsterdam”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

When we heard of okanami-yake, Japanese savory pancakes, we thought of some of the great specialty pancake restaurants in Amsterdam. At Donguri, they were definitely something different in the pancake genre, but not anything that we particularly craved or enjoyed. Also the service was rather coarse and indifferent, which made it a negative standout from all our other experiences during our two weeks in Japan.

“Awesome Okonomiyaki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

The food was OUTSTANDING!, servoce good and atmosphere quite nice. Add that to quite reasonable prices for Kyoto (ok maybe cheap for Kyoto), and what more could you ask for.
