Lunched here as recommended by our guide and it did not disappoint- best pancakes we've had but don't think European pancakes. Japanese pancakes are different and so moist and delicious. The tables have a hot plate (temperature controllable) which keep pancakes warm or you cook...More

食べ物結構美味しし、もんじゃとお好み焼き両方頼んた、もんじゃの方がとても美味しいですが、お好み焼きのサイズちょっと物足りない。 外国の友達結構満足しているようで、店も写真を撮ってくれて、print out してくれて、最高のおもてなし The food was good. We ordered monja and okonomiyaki both, monja is good but okonomiyaki is a little bit small for three of us. Especially the mental mochi became my favorite now. Is not too quiet to talk with friends.

Overtime we are in Asakusa we eat Okonomiyaki in this place. Having lived in Osaka we have tried quite a few Okonomiyaki and this place makes it right.

Our first meal in Tokyo! Was delicious! Lovely service and accommodating of our poor Japanese! Good price, decent portion and seemed very local. Yum.

This is one of the best restaurants in Tokyo. Not only is the food excellent, watching the two young chefs cook on the griddle plate in front of you is first class entertainment. We even went back the following evening and we're not disappointed. If...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

Enjoy yourself in the bright ambiance. We use specially ordered teppan grill at the counter on the 1st floor. We grill your okonomiyaki right in front of your eye. Fluffy dough okonomiyaki is our specialty. The rich flavor from the chicken soup stock that has been cooked for three days is the secret for our vaunted taste. We also have a reasonably priced course menu.
