Sakura Tei is a hide-away for an okonomiyaki and monjayaki restaurant in the back streets of Harajuku. Generally you cook your own food at your table. Many Japanese celebrities visit this restaurant, and it's rather famous. Interesting works of art cover the walls of the first floor, and the atmosphere is very indie. The second floor is calmer in tone, and can be reserved for private parties. Aside from the normal okonomi/monja selections, you can find items such as the dessert monja "banayan" and the green-onion filled "negi-yaki," as well as creative side-dishes on the menu. There is enough to explore that you'll have to come again and again. The all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink courses are also very popular.

  • Sakuratei offers standard okonomiyaki/monjayaki fare in a cool atmosphere at great prices. It's got a very indie/hippie vibe with all the artwork and graffiti on the wall. You have three options: go for the all-you-can-eat (tabehoudai) course, pick from their original mixes, or choose your own without the tabehoudai option. The place is very foreigner friendly, with English instructions on how to ... Read More

  • The benefits of Sakura-tei are twofold. First the is extraordinarily cheap all you can drink option, something like JPY1250 for 1.5h or 2hrs. The second is the variety of okonomiyaki and monjyayaki. Where else can you get a mexican themed 'margarita monjyayaki' that tastes like a burrito pie (american invention)? I've been here about 5 or 6 times now and they are very consistent and usual... Read More

  • Sakuratei is a hip place. They know it, and you’ll get it as soon as you walk in. The walls are covered in graffiti art, the service staff looks like they just came back from a skateboarders convention, and the place is hard to find, which makes you feel even more “in the know.” The food is simple: lots of variations of okonomiyaki, monjayaki and a few side dishes. We went for a special Tha... Read More

  • This restuarant is quite a find in Harajuku. It's uniqueness makes it really worth a visit. However, it is hard to find as it's in the backstreets of Harajuku. A map is definitely a good idea. The art gallery type atmosphere is perplexing while eating Okonomiyaki, but also quite enjoyable. Cooking your own meal on the skillet was really fun though, and probably best done in a group of 3-4 p... Read More

  • I had hard time just to get there. You should better take a map with you because you will probably get lost if you are visiting for the first time. The entrance is at the end of narrow alley, and it has an apperance similar to a fancy Japanese Izakaya. However, the inside is far from what you imagine from the entrance. The lightings are bright, and the walls are painted with pop style arts. I... Read More

  • One of my friends produced a Google map while we were standing outside of Harajuku station. “Okonomiyaki” is one of personal obsessions. She proclaimed that a friend had recommended they be all end all okonomiyaki restaurant, and we set off to find it. Because Japanese streets are impossibly byzantine, we wandered around for a little while. Abruptly, we arrived at a psychedelic building. My fr... Read More
