More Reviews of good food at Seiwaa Okonomiyaki & Teppanyaki Restaurant

Since we can't travel to Osaka, then let Seiwa bring Osaka to us!
I like the batter and the generous mix of ingredients that went into it. We tried the pork okonomiyaki and it was light enough and a good balance to pair off with our Suntory.

Just a stone throw away from the Jalan Besar MRT station is a hidden Japanese restaurant that is perfect for group gathering. At this place, you’ll have the option of cooking your own okonomiyaki or sit back and watch the chef skillfully prepares it for you. With the inner masterchef in us, of course we opted to cook it ourselves. However, it turned out to be a mess, so eventually we let the chef took over. Nevertheless, it’s still a very fun and interesting experience! We got the okonomiyaki, monjayaki and the seafood platter. The taste of the monjayaki is great but its wet and mushy texture may not be to everyone’s liking. Overall, the food served was average but the unique experience and the friendly service crews make us want to go back again.

I think the batter could have been used it make 6 smaller pancakes instead. The pancakes were so big that the sides were abit undercooked. If they were fully, the pancakes would have been very nice.

It was pretty fun to cook our own okonomiyaki! I think we could have made it thinner so that the cabbage in the middle gets cooked. Taste wise i think it's a normal okonomiyaki.

With squid, prawns, dried shrimps and pork. We got the staff to help us cook it. The cabbage was sliced very thinly on the hotplate. I really love the flavourful taste but it gets salty at the end. I think we didn cook it long enough to make it crispy on one side.

These were so unique! I'm mad about pancakes so this is right up my alley. These were cooked right in front of us on the griddle and there was cheese sprinkled in the middle with a glorious golden drizzle of gula melaka sauce.

There is a nice brown crisp exterior and the center is foamy and fluffy without being too sweet and there isn't an eggy taste at all. The melty cheese gives that salty, slightly savory pop and the gula melaka truly shines with a rich coconutty flavor. It is truly the epitome of fuwa-fuwa. I got to flip my own pancakes and then eat it with tiny spatulas. It's just so cute and fun. ❤️

Not saying it's the best pancake I've eaten, but it was really about the experience. And I really enjoyed myself here.

An entire grilled squid ($12)! The whole thing was cooked in generous amounts of butter which perfumed the squid and gave it a lovely, rich, salty flavor. The squid itself is generously sized and has quite a nice bouncy texture, and it wasn't chewy nor did I have to break my jaw trying to chew it into pieces, which I appreciated. I also liked that I got to try different parts of the squid like the legs and head, etc.

Monjayaki is a runnier version of okonomiyaki (think melted cheese consistency). You scrape it hot and gooey off the griddle with tiny spatulas. The mixed monjayaki ($16) has bacon, prawn and squid mixed in, and I recommend it because it means each bite has the texture of gooey monjayaki, crunchy prawn, bouncy squid and savory pork.

It's got a totally different mouthfeel and a starchier taste compared to okonomiyaki, but really fun to eat. Towards the end, the monjayaki gets caramelized on the grill, which results in being ridiculously crispy and delicious. Add a tiny dab of okonomiyaki sauce and bonito flakes for that final dash of seasoning.

I came here once and fell in love with it. You know you've found a legit place when you're basically the only English-speaking individuals in the restaurant. It was just an incredibly fun experience for my dining partner and I. 😊

I love the okonomiyaki here. It is certainly equivalent to the ones I've had in Japan, in fact I might prefer these because they're just so super thick. These have a cabbage, dashi batter, egg and red ginger base and are freshly cooked on the griddle. You can dress them up as you please with extra okonomiyaki sauce, seaweed powder and bonito flakes.

I love how satisfying, creamy and chunky these pancakes are. They take a long time to cook as a result (the staff will help you with that), but really worth it. The premium okonomiyaki ($20) comes with four large prawns and more chopped up prawns in the batter.

Nice place to catch up with friends. Do not over order the okonomiyaki, gets very boring after a while. Pricing $10-14. The ingredients were very little. I.e. 4 thin slices of small bacon.
Try some teppan too. Beef steak with yakisoba $38 was okok. Highball $10. Would suggest to email to make reservations.

(Bottom to top) Lotus root, chicken, pork, salmon, pumpkin, shiitake mushroom. Nothing was seasoned so they're quite bland. You will like it if you want the natural taste.

An okonomiyaki topped with chilli crab gravy. Interesting fusion as well.

Although it's just tom yum flavoured and something that won't wow you, it's quite novel to taste Thai on Japanese food.

Usually easy to like, or it can be like this. A mediocre rendition. The pork slices were too tough.

It’s a small establishment with about 8 tables. So do call and book. Otherwise the wait can be up to half an hour or so for diners to finish. People typically just eat and go. The ingredients are very fresh and it’s a pleasure to watch the chefs cook in style. They welcome diners to join in in the cooking too. Most of the staff are Japanese, so it’s a very authentic feel. Ordered the seafood set, an egg wrap and the very filling mixed okonomiyaki and cost us $99. Not exactly cheap but it is reasonable.

Birthday meal means I can choose exactly where I wanted to dine ✨ I don’t think I’ll ever forget Mizuno okonomiyaki in Osaka so trying to find any close semblance of that experience in Singapore has always been at the back of my mind.
While I found the Okonomiyaki here good, Mizuno is of course in a league of its own for now. I’d suggest skipping the seafood platter and just coming for their yakisoba and okinomiyaki.
I’d be back for the soufflé pancakes and another thank you burpple moment for I would not have known of this place without my trusty pink App.

Had the meat grill platter and seafood okonomiyami. Ingredients were flavourful and fresh. Service was also excellent! All in all very value for money and worth the visit

The seafood was amazingly fresh, juicy and well-marinated. We also shared a tonpeiyaki which was yummy as well! Price came up to $69 for 2. Will definitely return for more.

Tom Yum was the tastiest out of the 3, with the Chilli Crab one coming in last as it was pretty lacklustre. The Teppanyaki Squid ($18) was really yummy, definitely another must-order dish.
P.S. This order would be pretty good for 3 pax, or 2 guys. Also, there is no 7% GST here 🙃 #cynfuleats #burpple #burpplesg
