Chinese Cuisine Sangu(燦宮)
The next restaurant we would recommend is the chinese restaurant, the Sangu(燦宮).
It is located on the 39th floor and you can enjoy authentic Cantonese cuisine.
It is immensely popular as you can enjoy the view while leisurely enjoying delicious chinese food.
Their dinner time starts from 5p.m. to 10p.m. and the last order time is at 9p.m., but they also do lunch.
They serve authentic and very much delicious Canonese dishes using carefully picked ingredients such as shark fin, abalone, and lobster.
They also have rooms which can fit up to 5 people and it is perfect for families or groups who can’t go to high class restaurants all that much due to having children.
You can enjoy the beautiful nighttime view from the room while on nice date or with family for a celebration.
Though, the main dining room has a comparatively different air to the private room space.
During lunch time, the light from the sun shines through and gives the room a spacious feeling, but during the evening and night, the shimmering nighttime view of the city can be seen through the big circular windows.
Not only do they serve chinese cuisine, but they also serve Japanese beef steak!
You can enjoy the deliciousness of their dishes, but you can also enjoy how those dishes look as well.
You can choose whether to go with A La Carte or a full course for any occasion and leisurely enjoy your time making memories.
By the way, this restaurant is also very popular with women.
Our 3rd recommended eatery is called the “cafeSKY40”.
It is located on the 40th floor on the Kuchu Teien Observatory.
Take note that the business hours start from 10am to 10pm and there is a separate entrance fee for getting into the Kuchu Teien observatory.
This cafe is gaining in popularity as you can enjoy the limited edition coffee beverage that is only sold the Umeda Sky Building.
This original coffee was made from carefully picked beans that are roasted in house which gives the coffee a fresh aroma.
You can also enjoy their alcohol and their food items as well.
Coffees and Espressos are 350 yen, Cafe lattes and Cappuccinos are 400 yen, which is a comparatively reasonable price.
The Umeda Sky Building Waffle is a waffle that is shaped like the building itself. It is also arranged to fit the changing seasons.
They have a wide variety of alcohol on their menu for you to enjoy!
One of their menu items which has been gaining in popularity is the World Beer Selection which is a collection of beer from different parts of the world.
The perfect view along with the best beers from all over the world is a good combination to say the least.
Other than that, there is a wide variety of food items and you can also enjoy soft serve-ice cream and sundaes for dessert.
Although it is a cafe, it runs until 10pm, so you will be able to leisurely enjoy your time viewing Osaka from 40 stories up in the air.
