This place is popular, so it usually takes time to get a table (long lines). But the experience after you are seated is very good. The service is good, some of the servers can speak a little bit of English too. The menu is in...More

As we visited the tower, this restaurant is located right next to it, and it's highly visible because of the line that forms outside of it. I don't know, long lines mean it's great food, right? And so my wife and I waited about 15-20...More

This is one of the must visit places for tourists in Osaka, and for good reason. Serves up delicious but affordable kushikatsu, deep fried food on wooden skewers. The outlet in Dotonbori is fairly small and extremely popular so be prepared to queue a lot....More

We visited this restaurant on a Thursday for a late lunch (2:30pm) after visiting the mossy Buddha. There was no wait and lots of locals. We ordered from the a la carte menu on the back page. We had around 9 skewers for the adults...More
