    New location does not have the same vibe as the original. Pass on their taiyaki, shells are thin and they are not molded together well. Go for takoyaki (if fresh), the okomomiyaki and yakisoba.

    "Slather up the takoyaki with kewpie mayo, okonomiyaki sauce, and bonito, and you have pure umami. If only they sold alcohol; then you could wash it down with a beer or sake!" - Chef Tien Ho Read more

    excellent takoyaki

    Everything is great! My favorite takoyaki (octopus balls) but the whole menu is solid

    The red bean medetai are made of a thin layer of bread and a ridiculous amount of filling. The filling wasnt too sweet nor to savoury but perfectly balanced in between. Definitely give it a go.

    The okonomiyaki is fried vegetables with either shrimp or bacon plus bonito flakes and their sauces. The vegetables were light and crunchy, the shrimp added a bit of chewiness. Sauces are amazing
  • Ghassan A.
    The takoyaki here is ridiculously good. The dumplings texture is softer than marshmallows and then u get the chewiness of the octopus. The dumplings really brings out the flavor of the octopus.

    Cheap Japanese street food (not exactly FAST food) that's super authentic and unique. Didn't love the yakisoba (like Lo mein) but dug the okonomiyaki

    There's not much choice for yakisoba or okonomiyaki in NYC so I guess you'll have to do

    The biggest takoyaki I've ever had. Worth the price. Favorite hole in the wall joint when I need more food after a meal

    Takoyaki is weird in between: a bit too much for a snack, a bit too little for its own meal. Combos way too filling for one though. Delicious any way.

    The noodles (yakisoba) or the pancake (okonomiyaki) are both too good to miss. Lucky for us you can get a combo! With a side medetai for dessert of course...

    Their takoyaki is real delicious along with their okomomyaki but it is a long wait sometimes to get the okomomyaki....

    Octopus balls which are originally called as "Takoyaki" are very interesting and tasteful. $7. No proper seatings, you just have to wish the bench outside is not taken.

    The specialty is a gooey pancake called otafuku, which means "cook what you like" and Otafuku provides a fine intro to the genre, featuring ingredients such as shrimp, unsmoked bacon, and squid. Read more

    Get the takoyaki while it's still piping hot. You can order okonomiyaki and udon as well.
