Shoes off, sit on the floor. That's interesting, however sitting on the floor for tall, inflexible European is a challenge. You get ingredients and make your own okonomiyaki. It's easy to do, and nice experience. The restaurant is old and pretty run down which doesn't bother us, but beware, especially those who care about impeccable conditions.

Short wait of around 15 minutes in the evening but worth it for a fun meal. Traditional japanese style restaurant with a hot stove to cook your own food, which comes in a bowl ready to mix up and cook. Staff are on hand to help out if you're unsure, all seemed very friendly. Reasonable price for a wholesome meal.

I wondered about place like this when I came to Japan. It was awesome and I can't find any minuses of this place.

Got very lucky and there was no queue when I came, ordered Gyuuten okonomiyaki and cooked it myself (with some help). The ingredients makes the dish delicious since my skills are so-so 🤣 Helpful staff with good english skills

We had a great meal. We waited only 10 minutes with 8 people in front of us. We chose the yakisoba but had the potatoes for starter. Cannot fault it. It was full of westerners thanks to trip advisor but with a smattering of locals to give it credibility. The staff spoke enough English and helped with the cooking. We... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
