Good Food Friendly staff

I had dinner there 3 times as, not just because I like Asian food but also they have good background music and lovely staff. The noodles were a bit greasy and the menu is a bit limited if you want non spicy vegetarian

OK, let's start with the good stuff. The seaweed salad. Decent portion, decent quality. Tasted well. Not bad at all. The rest: yikes. Overcooked, mushy noodles, no salt, no taste. Just yukk. Sorry. This must have been the worst food ever.

We fancied a change from tapas, so gave this place a try. Starters were very good - tasty dumplings but mains were rather sparse. Don't go too hungry!

went there on a cold day and found the warm soup delicious. The service was slow, but the waitress was all alone and kept letting us know she hadn't forgotten about us. The price was okay, maybe a bit expensive - 11E for each soup and 2.25 for hot tea. Overall, happy with the quality.

I went there with a group of friends and we were all very disappointed. The food was very little for the prize, there was almost no meat included in the soups we had and it was almost cold when we got it. Also it took them forever to serve us. All in all I cannot recommend going there. There are... More

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!

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.
