Wonderful place! We waited for about 20 minutes and one of the staff members came out to take our order while we waited for our table. Brought us an English menu... which helped! Very interesting concept, so good. Looking forward to coming back next time...More

We arrived at 11:20 a.m. on a Saturday morning, around 10 minutes before opening, and there was already a long queue. We almost missed the first seating, but managed to get the last two seats at the counter. As it turned out, this was a...More

Local Japanese flavour combined with casual food theatre make this popular hotspot the perfect foodie tourism destination. The Okonomiyaki is perfectly fresh as it is cooked right before you on your table's own hotplate. Please don't touch, hot. While the Okonomiyaki crisps away, soba noodles,...More

It's a place that local people will visit, and provide multi-lingual menu for people don't read Japanese. The food is awesome, and at reasonable price -- the Mix okonomiyaki is 1300 Yen. Will definitely have another visit next time.

Don't be put off by the long line to get in; this restaurant is worth the wait. Sit at the counter or at tables with griddles in the center, and your server will cook your okonomiyaki in front of you. Great theater, and delicious food....More

Stumbled onto this place for a late lunch our first day in Osaka. Great food - special mix (seafood and pork) okonamiyaki was hands down incredible with a strong umami bomb with the sauces and bonito flakes. Fast and efficient service. Reasonable pricing. No surprise...More

Found Ajinoya as per standard operating procedure via TA and opted to go early for dinner (6.30) to avoid the crowds. And that worked, we were in within 20min. They ask you to make a choice whilst standing in line but only shortly before you...More
