A great looking little place, the staff were friendly and outgoing and the beer while nothing to write home about was alright. Plus it’s cool drinking it with the a/c, peaceful Japanese music, quiet of the empty restaurant while enjoying the view of the big copper tanks. Worth popping in while shopping or sightseeing around Namba for lunch. I got the 880 yen tofu burger lunch other meals were from 680-2000 yen and pricier for dinner. In the afternoon on a day without a show upstairs it was a quiet peaceful place. It is smoking but luckily when I went the other 2 customers weren’t smoking so no problem. I liked this place quite a bit and if they had a third tap with one of their seasonals I would probably come by pretty regularly. It would also make a good place for a date or group part, the place is a maze of small rooms in the back for groups on top of the fairly large front dining room plus a long counter-top bar, seating for at least 100 people?

Traditional Japanese food with Osaka’s speciality: pressed sushi. Like mentioned below, the two beers (alt & kölsch) are ok but nothing really special here. To find this, just seek for the Kabuki theatre.

A Japanese style restaurant and brewpub under the Shochiku Kabuki theatre in Osaka. Their two beers are ok but served far too cold and a bit pricey. Not really worth making a special trip to, but if you happen to be watching Kabuki upstairs, would be worth a stop for refreshment.
