Whilst a little pricey, it's worth noting that the experience is totally personal and theatrical. Okonomiyaki is cooked on your table, with the server explaining every step. Super tasty!

It's like stepping into a little Tokyo okonomiyaki shop, except you don't need to speak Japanese. I've had okonomiyaki in Tokyo and Kyoto, and Abeno is the real deal. Most of the menu items are quite traditional Japanese, one of two items are Anglicized versions,...More

Called in around lunch time following a meeting at the British Museum. Welcomed as a first time visitor and pleasantly surprised. Menu options understandable and order promptly taken. Food served after a slight delay which was explained by the hostess. Excellent lunch!!

We attended Abeno as we had heard it did okonomiyaki which we last had in Hiroshima. This is essentially a Japanese omlette which is cooked for you at your own table/hot plate. Not expensive and totally different from usua Japanese food.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated

Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
