“Fresh, Local and Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Was in for lunch on a hot day. I have loved this restaurant in both locations - and am absolutely thrilled that it has returned. The food is well-prepared and presented, the prices are fair and proportionate, and the service is attentive and friendly. Youko, the hostess with the mostest, greets you and asks what would you like to drink from a list of many. I enjoyed the barley tea, which is smoky and refreshing.. Lunch was a summer special with salmon from Wallkill, NY, in a bowl with cold Udon noodles with grated radish and braised spinach. The sauce complimented the meal and was a refreshing, satisfying meal. Dessert was a cup of green tea with a crunch sweet treat Kalinto. The price was reasonable given the vegetables were fresh, salmon tasty and local and as close to authentic Japanese cuisine as you get. The best bet in New Paltz!

“One of the best restaurants in New Paltz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Warm tones great you when you enter this cozy New Paltz eatery. I am wary of Japanese noodle shops because I find that often the food is too salty or too much soy is used.
However, I was pleasantly surprised by the varied menu and the freshness of the noodles.
Great saki and tea selection as well.
Interesting dishes...worth a visit and a return visit.
Good place to meet friends or for a date.

“The best Japanese noodle shop in New Paltz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

There are five Asian restaurants in New Paltz. For noodles, soba, udon, or stir-fried, Gomen Kudasai is the absolutely best. They use the freshest as well as appropriately aged sauces and oils. The service is excellent, and the owner is a wonderful woman who will, if you encourage it, talk to yoiu about Japanese cooking, culture or couture at length.

“Wahoo they moved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

When it looked as if they were closed I was in despair. So glad they moved and are still serving such excellent noodles with special sauce
