We were so fortunate to find ourselves at this amazing small restaurant upstairs just a short walk from the chaos of the Buddhist temple complex in Asakusa. We were helped by the nicest person named ‘Mami’ who guided us through the menu and then assisted us cooking our meals. We had 3 different ‘pan...cakes’ called monjaiki that were fabulous. One was beef, one chicken and one vegetarian. Mami start d the cooking and added the right spices and let us enjoy the delicious flavors. We also had a teppenyaki with shrimps, scallops and mod that were delicious!!! The 4 local ladies next to us were hysterically laughing and enjoying their evening as much as we were! So simple space, super nice staff (near perfect English!), and scrumptious flavors. Would definitely return!

The waitress has some problems understanding us as there is no english menu. After some pointing and guessing, we managed to order the meat teppanyaki and the okonomiyaki. Was surprised though when we were told that we have to place order for drinks (for dinner). Okonomiyaki was good. Servings for t...he teppanyaki is large enough for the 4 of us.

“Fun and tasty”
My friends called this the puke restaurant haha. You cook on the table in front of you and it's all pretty tasty. I love these kind of concepts. The place is a bit grubby.

We had dinner here and loved the okonomiyaki. There is an English menu and the staff can communicate in English as well. We sat down, and literally 15 minutes later the place was full of customers and the staff had to turn people away, so we got quite lucky we could eat there. The food was very tas...ty and very reasonably priced, the staff was quite polite except for one waitress. We sat down and she sort of ignored us for quite a bit. We got the menus but waited a looong time to get her attention to be able to order. She did serve other customers in the meantime. This however has not spoiled out meal for us, which was delicious. We would love to eat here again!

“I love monja!”
My wife is Japanese. We live in Australia, but visit Japan every year and always get a fix of monja and okonomiyaki at Rokumonsen when we are staying in Asakusa, Tokyo. DON'T expect an English menu. DO expect great grub in an authentic Japanese monja house. I love monja!
