Delicious!! Ordered 2 different okonomiyaki with udon n noodles. Taste great.. it’s really from those you get from osaka.

There are english menu and owner can speak english! We ordered the butter oysters which were really fresh too! This shop is the closest to the elevator.. all other shops on the same floor sells okonomiyaki.


Fantastic place to eat while in Hiroshima, affordable and tasty. Come on by and enjoy yourself in a nice atmosphere, although best to have plenty of water as it can get quite warm.


Amazing okonomiyaki! On a day trip to Hiroshima and I really wanted to try the famous Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki but the two restaurants I tried were closed. This place however was open, and it worked out so well. The okonomiyaki is cooked in front of you and then served on a hotplate to keep it warm since the servings are quite large. They are also delicious! I recommend the one covered in cheese.
