This restaurant got the most unique and largest mascot so you can’t miss it - just look for the towering aggressive looking, mustachio, sneering chef character. There was also a more human size version of him just outside the entrance with arms crossed holding two...More

I ordered a pork, beef, shiitake and sausage skewer. These deep fried skewers were good and reasonably priced (180-200Y each). The restaurant provides instructions on how to "dip soy sauce" and how to follow the hygienic manners. Nice place! I was there at around 5pm,...More

Although my wife and I were really looking forward to eating at Ganso Kushikatsu Daruma, it was honestly the most disappointing meal we had in Japan. That doesn't mean it is bad by any means; however, it's simply a lot of deep-fried food that tends...More

Kushikatsu is one of the signature Osaka foods... just about anything stuck on a skewer and deep fried. What more could you ask for? They have an English menu so it's easy to choose from the variety of meats, vegetables, and various other items. You...More

You should try this experience at least once in Japan. This is a great place to do it. Come after the dinner rush!

Kushikatsu Daruma is a popular chain restaurant which has a cool looking statue mascot of an angry looking chef holding two skewers across his chest outside every restaurant. There was quite a line to get in there, but we waited patiently and eventually got a...More

Went there yesterday and paid 4500 Yen for the most average Yakitori of my life. 10 pieces, two draft beers... 4500 Yen. This is bad even for Japan. Waiters were very rude and you have to order a minimum amount of sticks... Never again.

We saw this place from a vlogger On YouTube and had to try this place. And we are so glad we did! Went went back again! The place might seem Smokey that’s normal, everything is fried! There is a strict rule for Kushikatsu. ONLY DIP...More
