Super friendly service and very authentic Okonomiyaki in town. Side dish Tofu is very very good. I will recommend you to book first to avoid disappointment.

I ordered the ginger infused winter toddy, the chicken okonomiyaki, the avocado and tofu gyoza, all of which were excellent!

You get to see your okinomiyaki cooked right infront of you. The queue can get quite long and slow moving at dinner peak hours.

Found this place by accident - didn’t even have a signboard outside! However inside it’s unusual and the waitress was super helpful guiding us through the options. We absolutely enjoyed the Agadashi Tofu, the tempura and of course the house special which is prepared in...More

Whilst a little pricey, it's worth noting that the experience is totally personal and theatrical. Okonomiyaki is cooked on your table, with the server explaining every step. Super tasty!

Visited here with an Aussie friend who lives in London but knows her Asian cuisine. Had a lovely lunch and really enjoyed the experience. Nice staff who explained all. Really good value for a very filling lunch

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
