We were around the area looking for restaurant and saw this one with long queue so we decided to give it a try. The service weren't as bad like from other reviews. We have ordered a menu for 2 to have 3 different kind to try and it was good. Just extremely hot sitting in front of the chef and... More

My husband and I were so excited to find this spot after being in many parts of Japan without any luck. Line was long, went quickly. Done the right way at your table! Super fresh and HOT. Found this gem of a restaurant that uses Yams instead of regular flour. They find using it makes it more tender, yay for... More

The rudest, most aggressive staff serving average okonomiyaki... definitely not worth any kind of wait, let alone almost an hour.

What to expect from the restaurant: * very yummy okonomiyaki ! * pretty presentation (can't bear to eat them!) What to be mentally prepared: * long queues; possibly 30-50mins * rush services; understandable as they needed to turn table around fast

When a place becomes really popular, they sometimes think they are better than they are. This is one of those places. You won't miss it, it - it has one of the longest queues in the area. But their popularity means they don't need to put effort into service because even if one customer is pissed, the next customer is... More

Love Japan and have never experienced a place so rude. Literally said to us "are you finished? We have other people in line downstairs". Had not even finished my drink.. Terrible front door service too

Oldest okonomiyaki restaurant in Osaka. The dough of Okonomiyaki is traditionally made of flour and eggs, but Mizuno’s “Yamaimo-yaki” never uses flour, only yam instead, hence being called Yam-Okonomiyaki. They do have english version menu with most popular ranking hence make ordering very easy. Be prepared to wait outside the restaurant if you went to the restaurant during meal hours.... More

I've had way better okonomiyaki and this place is not worth the hour plus wait. Nothing special or distinctive in their recipe in my opinion.

I only managed to dine here after coming back a second time as it seems to be a hot favorite here. I don't think there is a English equivalent to this food and so the nearest is probably pancake with ingredients. You choose the type of pancake and The chef will cook right in front of you. The food are... More

We arrived early in then morning at 10:45, just before the restaurant opened. There was a small line, already. We were the last ones to get seated from the opening line. The restaurant is quite small with only 10 seats along for the grill. From other reviews there seems to be an upper room with more seating as well which... More
