    so disappointed!!!!

    I loved this place when it was in a teeny cramped storefront. Now it is in a space that is much larger and very bright. However, there is no longer a single Japanese working in the place. My tako were cold and each had only one miniscule piece of octopus. The remainder of my meal was bland and undercooked. Needless to say, I won't be going back. Looks like they took a good formula and ruined it.

    Fun spot

    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 :)

    Eat Whilst It's Hot!

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

    Insanely delicious!

    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%.

    Satisfies the Craving

    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.
