Read the reviews and I knew we had to try this place as it was near our hotel. We passed by around 4pm, there was no line, and we were shown to our table. Our server gave us English menus, took our order, and cooked our okonomiyaki for us at our table. Our okonomiyaki was already good for 2 persons.... More

Came here around 7pm prepared for a wait and stood in line for about 30-40 minutes. Worth it for sure! Great okonomoyaki and yakisoba, prices pretty standard for that area. It was lots of fun sitting around the hotplates while your food cooks. Would definitely recommend while in osaka!

A most memorable meal. The queuing in the rain before opening was well worth it. Service was excellent and we chose the set menu with okonomiyaki and yakisoba, which was prepared and cooked on a hot plate at our table. The food was absolutely delicious, with wonderful smoky flavours from the grill and one of the food highlights of our... More

This restaurant cooks many of Osaka's most famous dishes such as Okonomiyaki - one of the best I have ever had. Staff have limited English but communication is easy enough. They have excellent value set menus for 2 people. A feature is bag storage under the bench seats. Well worth finding this restaurant that is upstairs - lines form from... More

My husband and I were following a list of the Top 10 restaurants in Dotonbori and Ajinoya was part of it. We were glad we found this place. This was the best Okonomiyaki of the 3 in the list that we tried. Service was friendly and quick. Unlimited bonito flakes were also on the table and added to our dining... More

Found the place by following foursquare recommendations and it did not disappoint. My family and I ordered the set and followed up with drinks, and everything went pretty smoothly. The atmosphere feels more local than other okonomiyaki restaurants around the area, my only complaint is that I didn't think the staffs were as friendly as I hoped, but then it... More

We were lucky enough to have our last meal in Osaka in this little gem! Food cooked on hotplates in front of you while you watch, amazing okonomiyaki and stir fried noodles were delicious! A bit of a wait at the door but worth it!

This place was pretty busy. We waited for a table about 45 minutes. Later, we found out that this restaurant was michillin guided. We're excited by the way they cooked in front of us and the heating plate to keep any pizza or hot dishes warm(excellent!). The service was also good and the price was reasonable.
