This time of the year the weather in Barcelona is a bit unpredictable, so after a while you long for some soup to warm you up. Much to my surprise at the corner near the Picasso was a wonderful clean modern chain restaurant called Udon Born. The service is excellent and the menu is varied with traditional Japanese dishes and... More

This place is awful. Miso ramen is made with miso soup and plastic noodles. One would have thought they new about real Japanese stock for ramen, but clearly not. If you want good ramen in Barcelona there is only one authentic place on Cl Girona. Nothing to do with me, but great ramen!

Cheap fake solutions, bad taste, too fat for Japanese! Waiter playing with phone during busy hours and brings wrong dish.

Give this a skip. I only went because my system could no longer take the wheat based food and more tasteless paela. Insult to Japanese cuisiene. Took forever for food to arrive. Waitress was nes but pleasant, the older one was not. I'm East Asian. A SPANISH COUPLE IN TNE NEXT TABLE SPOKE RUDELY ABOUT ME.

The food is great, they have wonderful vegan options like veggie gyoza, tofu skewers and a few rice and noodles dishes that taste just great! The waiters are very professional, very welcoming and extremely efficient. No doubt about it, I'll keep coming back over and over again.

A nice and clean place. The food was ok and priced fairly. Both of us had yaki soba and it was fine, though not enough meat in my opinion.

Found this to be a good option in meat-centric Barcelona, especially for something a little healthier than traditional spanish food. Ate here a few times and it was always very clean and had good service, food was tasty and decent value.

After almost a week in Barcelona, my husband and I wanted to try something different and popped into Udon not knowing it was a chain. We sat down and looked at the menu and the food pictures looked great. We ordered some Gyoza and eat a bowl of ramen. The Gyoza came out quickly, but was bland and seemed like... More
