“Tasty food cooked in front of you”
We queued for half an hour but it was worth it. The food was prepared in front of us on a hot bbq plate set into our table. We had a set menu of three different dishes with a variety of tasty treats inside an omelette-like base.

“Tasty and filling”
I’ve been to Osaka about 20 times and never had Okonomiyaki. I had mixed version with a bit pf everything. It’s not really a pancake; more like a omelette with pancake type dough. Very tasty and very filling. It’s kept hot by a hot plate in the middle of a table.

Was in Osaka March last year and didn't go here because i don't wait in queues. Thanks to Corona, there were no Chinese tourist, hence, no queues to wait in. This place was so good, we went the following day as well. I really don't understand the negative reviews. As a chef, I thought the Okonomyaki... was one of the best I have had. As for the staff, very friendly. I noticed that people from certain countries get frustrated because they don't speak English or Japanese and find it hard to communicate, that does not make the staff rude, if they can't understand you. Learning a few basic words in Japanese before you come here is really appreciated by the locals. Highly recommend this place, glad I was able to try it this trip.

“It is totally worth the wait in line!”
This is a Michelin recommended place, not starred. We kept hearing "Michelin Star" when we were in line for it, just thought we would clarify. However, was it worth the 15mins wait we spent waiting outside? You bet! Guests are seated right up against the teppanyaki when we got inside. Their signatu...re okonomiyaki is the nagaimo one (mountain yam), we ordered one with seafood and a Mizuno style one (traditional one with eggs and noodles). I have always liked nagaimo but having it fried up crispy with all the fixings were a whole different experience. Smelling both okonomiyaki while they were cooking was tantalizing enough, putting those crunchy bites in my mouth made me feel like the whole trip to Japan was already worth it (mind you, it was only our 2nd day there). Washing everything down with an ice-cold beer? Satisfactory to the max. It is a little pricey compared to other okonomiyaki restaurants, it was a little over 40usd for the 2 of us but we thought it was all worth it.

“Don’t fall for the hype, overrated! Vegetarian friendly”
The main reason we went to Mizuno is because they offer vegetarian okanomiyaki. If you don’t have dietary preferences, I would suggest going elsewhere for a more authentic experience and likely more tasty experience.
