“bland noodle soup and pricey for what you get”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I was so dissapointed in this place. I went for lunch with my daughter had a noodle soup bowl cost 15 dollars not worth it for two soups and two rice balls ( which are only 2 dollars each) basically 28 dollars for two bowls of soup, and mine was bland no flavor, waiter inattentive, horrible service, wont be going back grr!

“Authentic, Local, & Socially Conscious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Nowhere in the Hudson Valley will you enjoy a more authentic blend of nouveau and traditional Japanese food made with local and organic ingredients. They even make thier own tofu and miso! One day I received a lesson in the proper slurping of soup dishes.. I don't think I did it too well but I appreciated the genuinely helpful and friendly wait staff. Met the owners who are more than willing to share stories about the food, traditions, and the area, a real find.

“Hit the spot after hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

The nabeyaki udon was fantastic after the hike today. Shared this with my son. My husband ordered the tempura udon and was very happy with his dish as well. We finished the meal with a delicious green tea cake and green tea ice cream. Thank you Youko for your recommendations and hospitality!

“Very small portion”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

The portion of the food is Extremely small, even for the appetite of a skinny Asian lady!! My husband and i spent $50 for a bowl of noodle and a dinner set, but still had to go to another restaurant afterwards.
The chef is not Japanese, but the waiters and waitresses are!
The ambience created by the live music does not go well with the taste of Japanese cuisine!!

“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!
