GOOD FOR TOURISTS! Amazing food and hospitality. This is the best okonomiyaki place in Tokyo. Disregard the negative reviews, you just need to make a reservation the day before, and please understand and appreciate that you're visiting a country that doesn't speak your language, make an effort, use a translator, they will be happy to cook for you and make you feel super welcome.


Our local tour guide suggested this place. It was a great dinner choice. It is a small place and it is mostly booked. Be sure to get a reservation.


Surprised at the previous reviews - we had a really nice experience here! We didn’t have reservations but they had two open seats available and they were very welcoming. They provided us with an English menu and the food was DELICIOUS and drinks were plentiful. Highly recommend if they have availability. Ignore the previous reviews - it’s a small shop, and the seats on either side of us were reserved. Of course they’re going to have to turn some people away if they’re full.
