We got lost while navigating to Kiji (honten) at Shinumeda Shokudogai and thankfully a very kind-hearted Japanese showed us the way. We arrived about 10 minutes after its opening time and had to wait in queue. An English menu were given and order were taken not long after. About 30 minutes later we were asked to go upstairs (Kiji is... More

My wife is from Osaka and we've lived in Kansai for decades, making okonomiyaki at home like any Kansai family, but we make special trips from Kobe to Osaka just to go to Kiji. Even in a foodie town where okonomiyaki is the local dish, Kiji is a local favorite. Totally unpretentious and non-touristy, this is the real deal...just good,... More

Always come here for Okonomiyaki every time I visit Osaka. Their Okonomiyaki is still the best I've tasted so far. The staff is so nice and friendly. Just love it.

Super yummy Okonomiyaki. Go early and avoid the crowd at this very popular establishment. Order as you like-mixed, beef, pork, or with noodle and also try the salted noodle with seafood. Everything is so delicious and inexpensive too.

Now, do you come to Osaka? Do you have close to the Osaka or Umeda Station? Is lunch now, or night? Do not you want to eat the Osaka specialty? If all future is true, there is one I have food that you want to recommend to you. It is a"pancake". "Okonomiyaki" is the Osaka specialty. If it likened, it... More

We are not sure if English menu was available as we just chat up with a Taiwanese couple in front of us and asked for help when we were presented the Japanese Menu. We ordered the exact items as them - Okonomiyaki with Pork and Hiroshima-style Yakisoba, Both me and my partner prefer the yakisoba over okonomiyaki but the okonomiyaki... More

Went here based on recommendations and they weren't wrong. We had a bit of trouble finding it (the directory was all in japanese so we had to look up pictures of the place and cross referenced the japanese writing- eventually just followed the crowded restaurant on the basement floor), but definitely worth the effort. Luckily we arrived early around 5pm... More

This is a classical Okonomiyaki restaurant locating in restaurant street at JR Osaka/Hankyu Umeda station. This restaurant is very popular and always crowded. So it must take time to get in and you might not be able to relax there. However, I'm sure you can taste the best Okonokiyaki here!!
