A delicious Takoyaki restaurant using fresh octopus. It is a very popular shop for foreign tourists, but it is also popular among Japanese. Because it is popular, a lot of people are lining up, but Takoyaki does not take time to eat, so you can...More

Osaka is really the hometown of Takoyaki! We tried Takoyaki from a few places, even from Dontonburi but this was our favourite. We liked the spring onion version which added a sweet crunchy touch to the piping hot Takoyaki.

We were at Dotonbori the day before, and had at least three sets of takoyaki from three different shops, which all coincidentally claim to be the best takoyaki shop in town. I was hungry walking around Umeda station and cannot decide what to eat. The...More

Can't get the craze on takoyaki. Inside was a bit too soft and mushy for my liking. Not enough octopus per bite. The queue was long but went fast. Ok for a quick bite and the experience. I'd say the best is watching the takoyaki...More
