Great place for a quick lunch!

You will be a little surprised at the bill when it comes and you're blissfully full of udon that was lovingly prepared and made with authentic ingredients. But you'll be happy you paid what it was worth in the end! Great for quick lunches!

Dishes are overpriced but worth paying for just because there are only a few real Japanese restaurants in Paris. However, the SERVICE!! The worst service ever. Went there several times and last time was the worst. We called in advance to make sure they were open. We were told that 16:30 was the last order. We arrived at 16:00 and... More

Excelent Japanese food prepared by real Japanese people. Their udon and hot dishes are really good. Authentic tempura too! I was amazed by finding that kind of Japanese culinary skills in France.

We visited Kunitoraya two times already and loved it every time. The udon there is so perfect it's unbelievable, two of the best meals in my life ;) You can really feel the chef knows what he's doing. The portions are big and will leave you full. The staff is super friendly too. I highly recommend this place!

I am a frequent customer of Kunitoraya rue Villedo. Most of the time there is a long queue to seat and eat. The oden mori is my favorite, and all udon are excellent. Elegant and rafinate. Simple, you eat on wooden tables, I love to be seated by the bar on the wondow watching the street.

We were excited to explore the Little Tokyo district in the heart of Paris. Part of the excitement was the anticipation of trying the highly rated Kunitoraya udon noodles, mouth-watering food that I had heard about in the weeks before arriving in Paris. Reaching the noodle joint, we joined a queue (later found out this place is hardly without one)... More

Pretty legit udon in Paris. My brother suggested this place for lunch. There a wait when we arrived but we didn't wait too long. We sat at a long communal table with stools. All the tables are super close to each other. Not the place to dine if you are claustrophobic. I ordered an udon with shrimp tempura and pork.... More

Though on the pricy side, the food at Kunitoraya's streetside restaurant is worth the wait. Fine flavours and excellent beignet. We tried to get adventurous with unknown starters and were not so happy with them, especially given their price. But the mains are all mostly great!

Probably the best udon noodles I ever had. Seriously. My wife and I ordered the shrimp tempura udon and the Kunitora udon, which is their signature udon with thinly sliced pork. Both dishes were really well-flavored. The shrimp tempura was fried perfectly, and the broth was clean and had great umami. The pork udon was rich and savory. They used... More
