Went for dinner and ordered the set menu for two pax featuring crabs done in various ways. One of the most expensive meal we paid for in japan but I would say that one could get the same in kuromon

Was really looking forward to this restaurant based on reviews. Massively disappointed. The service was dreadful, the waitress in this photo refused to help us explain the menu. Food coming to the table was slow. Full of tour groups hence the wait.

Hi, Byronchu, There will be no WIFI access in the restaurant. Highly recommend you to get the pocket WIFI access when you are in Osaka. Especially if you are on self guided tour. Hoped this helps. Cheers & Rgds, KS
