Why Nagataya is special ?
Nagata-ya is quite a spacious restaurant as far as okonomiyaki shops go. They have counter seating along the main grill as well as table seating with a heated grill in the tables (you can choose to have these grills on or off). Nagata-ya is a great place for groups of friends, couples and families (there are a few high chairs and even a special allergy free sauce recommended for the kids).
Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki is more filling and also takes longer to eat, so it is beneficial to have hot grills at the table to keep the dish warm while eating. However, if you have a “cat’s tongue” you can eat your okonomiyaki off a regular plate.
Some must-try dishes:
Cheese & Shrimp Okonomiyaki: $11
Squid Chips & Siso Okonomiyaki: $9
Kimchi Okonomiyaki: $9
Green Onion Okonomiyaki: $8
How to get to Nagataya?
Bus lines run through Hiroshima and out to the suburbs. Generally speaking, these serve areas more likely to be used by locals than visitors, but #30 runs to the Hiroshima Youth Hostel (see Sleep). Signs include English, and buses depart next to the tram depot in front of JR Hiroshima Station.

Tips for you
We stumbled on this after leaving the Peace Memorial and am very happy we did! Having eaten okonomiyaki on a prior trip to Kyoto, we wanted to try the Hiroshima version. We ate at a table rather than at the "bar"....the okonomiyaki is prepared by the chefs at the bar, brought to the table & placed on the warm griddle in the middle of the table to keep it warm. It was delicious & accompanied by an ice cold beer, yum. For the 2 of us, including 2 orders, 1 beer and 1 soda, the bill came to about $20. friendly staff, good food, what's not to love!?
Easy to find. Next to a-Dome. Top of the list on 4sq/tripadvisor = you will see a LOT of tourists there. Food was delicious, anyways.
