We dined early to avoid queuing. Great service and very tasty okonomiyaki. We ordered 2 different ones and were able to share with the chef cutting them in half. Large serves, so fresh and delicous. Washed down with a couple of beers, inexpensive dining. It was fun watching the chefs prepare each meal

The chef will serve you half-cooked okomomiyaki onto the hot plate in front of you. You will then have to finish the cooking in accordance to your own taste. Tip: If you aren't familiar on how to customize your own okonomiyaki taste, feel free to stick to the default taste. The self-frying experience is tantalizing enough!

Worth waiting in line (but if you get there earlier, the better) - the food is cheap and delicious! the portions are huge but they are happy to give you to-go container. Highly recommend!

A great spot for okonomiyaki in Ginza. Very easy to find from the subway station, basement level of Tokyo Building. It has a very cosy atmosphere and lovely customer service. Loved being the only English speaking people in a restaurant. We arrived shortly after 11am and didn't have to wait. Although when we left a large line had already started... More

We made a special trip out to this restaurant based on other reviews stating the restaurant could accommodate gluten free options, but we were advised by the chef today that this is no longer the case.

After some shopping in Ginza, we were craving some okonomiyaki and used the restaurants near me feature on trip advisor. Found Kiji as a highly rated place not far from us. We probably reached the venue at 5.15pm and there was already a queue of 20 people outside the restaurant all locals. We had to wait a good hour and... More

Okonomiyaki is hard to find in Tokyo, but this place is probably the best. 2 minute walk from the South Marunouchi exit of Tokyo Station. Expect lineups, although they expedite the process by taking our order while still in line. An English menu is available and some of the servers speak basic English. Vegetarian options are available.

I thought it was pretty good, but my girlfriend didn't like it. This was Osaka style okinomiyaki, and wants you have had Hiroshima style okinomiyaki in Hiroshima, nothing can top that off. So for okinomiyaki outside of Hiroshima, it was pretty good, but HIROSHIMA OKINOMYAKI FTW!!!

This restaurant specializes in okonomiyaki, which is a Japanese pancake that has cabbage and a ton of other ingredients. It is one of my favorite foods in all of Japan. We love trying local food but often it is tough with the language barrier. We risked this restaurant because of the love of okonomiyaki and was surprised to have a... More
