Specialising in delicious and savoury Okonomiyaki, the Japanese restaurant Abeno in London offers a unique cultural atmosphere, enhanced by truly delicious Japanese cuisine. First established in 1993, Abeno is an excellent place to dine if one wishes to experience a meal like no other.

Okonomiyaki is a type of Japanese pancake which originated in the city of Osaka. The batter consists of flour, grated yam, and dashi (Japanese cooking stock), which is complemented with various fresh ingredients of the customer’s choosing. At Abeno, one can experience practically any kind of Okonomiyaki imaginable. For instance, the Kiso Mix consists of seasonal mushrooms, garlic, cheese, and lotus root. The Tofu Mix consists of tofu and sweet corn, and the London Mix features bacon, cheese, pork, and salmon. The Okonomiyaki offered by Abeno allows diners to enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine that is tailored to their personal tastes using ingredients of their choice. In addition to their esteemed Okonomiyaki, they offer dishes such as chicken katsu, Japanese-style curry, and salads.

Abeno’s fantastic food is only part of the restaurant’s appeal. The restaurant is known for its excellent customer service, carefully attending to every diner’s individual needs. The staff is friendly, personable, and mindful. Although the service at Abeno is perhaps not the speediest to be found in London, customers generally do not mind waiting a few extra minutes in order to enjoy the restaurant’s staff’s supreme attention and care. Abeno is a fantastic restaurant for any inquisitive diner.
