Read the reviews here and decided we must come along and try the Okonomiyaki ‘pankakes’.

The atmosphere was great, but of jazz with a buzz from the restaurant and staff calling out to each other.

We had salads, edemame (best we’ve had anywhere), the Okonomiyake, Shrimp and Avocado salad and I had to have waffles for desert.

The food, service and whole experience was great. The only minor (and I mean MINOR) point was the waffles were a bit on the crispy side.

Food seemed cheaper than I expect for this quality of food and atmosphere too.

Only staying in Kyoto for 5 nights, but we’ve already decided what we’re having when we come back in the next couple of days. Says a lot as I generally like to try new things!!!

This place specializes in okonomiyaki, but they have also other dishes. I loved the grilled buttered soy beans as starter, then a delicious tomato okonomiyaki! yummy!

We’ve eaten at the Kyoto and Shinjuku restaurant and have enjoyed both experiences, staff are friendly and helpful, the meals are delicious!
They do classic Japanese dishes and western twists, the tomato okinomoyaki is amazing, and the seafood yakisoba is also!
We tried to mozzarella chips - this was fun to eat and super crunchy, loved it!
The atmosphere is great as well!

We tried the vegetarian Yakisoba Nippon avocado which was really delicious and tomato okonomiyaki with pork and cheese, so yummy. Best food we have had in Japan so far, totally recommend this place.

Near Kyoto Station, easy to reach and very good food! Tomato okonimiyaki and the original one, both very good. And the yakisoba with avocado and Wasabi, delicious!
