I was introduced to this restaurant by a friend and we've been back three times! Tasty and authentic Japanese okonomiyaki (a way to use up ingredients) that caters for vegetarians and has an extensive selection of Japanese starters and drinks (try the omeshu!) . Service is usually friendly and you get to watch your meal cooked in front of you on your table, which adds to the experience. On my last visit they had a great Xmas themed offering with Stilton, turkey and asparagus. This branch is super handy for the British Museum and there's another near Leicester Square. Thoroughly recommend!

The go-to place for Okonomiyaki in London! It's centrally located right next to British museum. The restaurant is run by all Japanese people, who delivers the best service. Most of the okonomiyaki (i.e. a yummy omelette x pancake combo topped with BBQ food, sauce and mayo) are cooked right in front of you, so it makes a great place to bring family and friends for a fun atmosphere.

I fell in love with Okonomiyaki in Japan and Abeno brings the original to London. Walking in there feels like being back in Tokyo!

From the food quality and taste to the service, it deserves 5 stars. 

Been there a couple of times and I will definitely go again. 


Great little Japanese Okonomiyaki restaurant around the corner from Leiceister Square. Otherwise know as a 'Japanese pizza', okonomiyaki is the food of Osaka and if you've had the pleasure of trying one there, this will not disappoint! Little on the pricey side and no table bookings allowed so be prepared to wait if there is a group of you. 


After a friend taking me here for lunch last month, Abeno now has to be one of my favourite Japanese restaurants in London. They specialise in Okonomiyaki which I would say is the most epic omelette you will have in your life (if you like Japanese food). They cook it in front of you and you eat it right off the hot plate. The service was spot on with the guy cooking up our food telling us about each ingredient he used as well some facts about Japanese culture. I loved it :)


Absolute hidden London gem. Abeno specialises in Okonomiyaki, a surprisingly varied selection of Japanese omelettes, prepared on hotplates in front of you. The sake selection is well-curated, with mine served out of a little wooden box. Service is outstandingly friendly. It is on the small side, so be sure to book: it was still packed at 9pm on a Monday night this week!


I love this place, the okonomiyaki (Japanese omelettes) are always incredible..
