I've never been to Japan but I imagine this is one of the closest experiences in NYC one will get. I was expecting a bit more octopus meat in the takoyaki, sauce to meat ratio was a bit off. Other than that fantastic! My girlfriend and I had fun with the name O-ta-fuk-u :)

This little take-out joint offers very authentic Japanese snacks. Enjoy them when they're hot!! :)

Great in a pinch both time-wise and $$$$-wise. Very happy I live so close!

This is a very tiny place, but oh my God the food is delicious and inexpensive. The staff is very helpful when you are ordering and don't have a clue of what to order. Recomend it 100%.

Though the space is -extremely- tiny, and no where to eat save a bench outside the door or Tompkins park down the street, for a quick Japanese food fix, Otafuku is not bad. Tasty yakisoba and Osaka-style okonomiyaki (pancake-like, not layered like Hiroshima's) among other things are served with a heaping handful of bonito flakes and ginger. The price, for the US anyways, is reasonable, and the people making\serving your food friendly. Most food is made-to-order in front of you (if there's room to stand) and so nice and hot, and service thus only takes as long as it takes for the food to cook.

The first time I tried takoyaki was in the Philippines & ever since then I've forgotten what it tasted like. Then I found it in San Francisco, CA but it was not enough. Luckily as we were walking around the neighborhood a man was eating takoyaki! *gasp* I was thrilled! Beware though there are NO seatings but a little bench. It's fun to watch people while eating your food as they walk by. I love takoyaki & yakisoba. I love the apple & peach tea. Everything there is just awesome. I wish I could rate it higher than a 5. The people are really nice & the girl already knows what I'm getting. Highly recommend it if you want to try something different. You MUST have the takoyaki.
