The bottled mineral water was the best thing on the menu. Instant noodles taste much better and are cheaper. Udon was sour due to poor cooking or gone bad. Yuck!

I've been to Udon so many times and it has never disappointed me. Not once. Great quality for a small price and pretty efficient service. Outstanding tempura udon/soba. Can't wait to go back!

My husband, two friends and I arrived at dinner time. When we wanted to order they didn't have the strawberry smoothie and had also run out of the tofu starter, so we ordred something else - but then the waiter came back, because they had the tofu anyway. So a bit confusion. There were maybe five others in the restaurant... More

After three weeks in Spain I needed a change in flavours so decided to give this place a go for dinner. I ordered the beef udon noodles. The dish was relatively tasty but for €9.95 I felt the portion was extremely small. There were only about 8 tiny strips of beef, and I felt the size of the dish was... More

A good experience overall, restaurant clean and comfortable, our waitress was very pleasant, quick and efficient, and the food was quick to arrive and perfectly enjoyable. Good value, portions not huge but overall a big tick for this place.

Got my phone stolen at this restaurant. They don't bother to keep out beggars who are actually there to take anything they can get their hands on. Just don't even consider this place.

We chose to eat here as our thirteen year old is a big wagamama (Japanese chain restaurant) fan in the UK and it looked very similar. Smaller but layout with benches, ambience and very similar menu.

We had dined at the harbor and completely disappointed at the food. The Thai rice noodle with seafood tasted like leftover food, shrimp was obviously not fresh. Chicken in Udon noodle was so dry and tough. Will not eat there again!

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
