While enjoying beer in the shop, I ate the highest tasty Takoyaki. It was the most delicious of Takoyaki I had ever eaten.

We couldn't stay in the Takoyaki prefecture without dining at a restaurant specialising in it. We chose to have our Takoyaki after a long day at Universal Studios - we didn't get back to Namba until after 8pm so knew there was little hope of...More

Stopped by to get a pack or takoyaki on the way to Dotonburi from Namba. Delicious and easy to eat even after having dinner. It wasn't busy out front when we stopped by so it was really fast to get a serving.

This is the place to try Osaka street food takoyaki, octopus dumpling, served with pickled ginger, topped with savoury sauce, powdered aonori (seaweed), mayo, bonito flakes and usually eaten with toothpicks. Good stuff to eat with beer. Don't forget there's some seating in another part...More

Look carefully at the pictures, the name of the place is not written in English. Service is very quick, but no explanation of what is available. Seating is available but limited. Food was delicious, very glad I tried it.

There was a queue when we arrived. But it moves really quickly. There is also a seating area at the back. Food is really good!

If you go in the morning when the shop is just open, it wasn't that long que to wait. I even had a table to eat there too. The takoyaki is delicious and hot and chewy, nice to eat in cold weather.

Came here after lunch and there was a long queue - good sign. I had the combination pack - four different flavours/toppings. Very interesting - some sweet, some salty and some creamy (mayo sauce). The octopus was chewy and fresh. I'm not usually a big...More

WANAKA was known as a traditional sweet shop among neighborhood children in Sennichimae area in Osaka. It has become our root of our current as 'Takoyaki' we started to make Takoyaki in front of the shop. Afterward, we quitted working as a traditional sweet shop, and started `Wanaka` as Takoyaki shop. As we moved to the current place of our shop from Nanba Hanatsuki, it became really bright and breezy, so soon it was known to celebrities and travelers. History 1961 Wanaka is renewed as Traditional sweets shop after Sushi shop at Sennichimae 1986 Wanaka head shop is opened at Sennichimae
