The food is authentic Japanese. They even pride themselves on offering organic, local and rare Japanese dishes. They offer vegan options, which is incredible, and even their kids' meals are authentic and tasty. I tried their matcha bubble tea with soy milk, and though it was expensive for bubble tea, they use real matcha (not a random powder mix) and... More

We visited this restaurant a few years ago and really enjoyed the food and service. I was so looking forward to our return. The food is delicious and fresh. The portions are a bit small and the prices are much higher now and the service is lacking. Due to a health issue we requested one substitution and the waitress told... More

Been here a few times recently, and it's always delicious. Most recently, I ordered the Tofu Bento Box brunch special and the green tea w/brown rice (forgot its name); my companion ordered the vegetarian spring roll box. Lots of veggie options! Everything was fresh, wholesome, and made with care. Service was charming.

No complaints about quality of soup & noodle. Just a little cheap on the amount of noodle, vegetables, & meat portions. Place cannot compare to those is Brooklyn & NYC. Come on, give a little bit more veggies, meat, and noodles and keep your patrons to return!

I love the food. I go through days of absolute longing for noodles! I love the soba noodle soup and the stir fry. Really delicious salmon as well. And the green tea latte is a great pairing. Yummy!

Saturday night was packed.. The place isn't very big, but the food we ordered was delicious and good for you. They can do gluten-free dishes (mung bean and sweet potato noodle), but ask to speak with owner to prevent cross contamination. We are glad we did because my highly sensitive fiancée enjoyed her meal and did not have any gluten... More

Gomen Kudasai is a small place located in a strip mall in New Paltz, NY. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Our party of four shared edamame, two udon dishes, tempura, and a cold soba noodle plate. The owner even stopped by to demonstrate the proper technique for eating the soba. All of the food was fresh, well-prepared and tasty.... More

I have followed this establishment over two locations and love it every time. The food is fresh, the service is frequently good, and the decor is inspired. I love the Tatsu'tage bento box and appetizer and can't get enough of the Yaki Udon or the Wakame Udon soup. A great place to go for quality Japanese.

Ate lunch here yesterday finally! The ramen was delicious, my husband had udon noodles with egg, plain but he kept saying how good it was. I like a bit more adventure so I had tempura and kimchee (they kindly added some kimchee to a dish that didn't have it in it). The vegetables in the tempura batter were hot, slightly... More
