Delicious udon handmade by the chef. About a 20 minute wait on the street but your order is taken while you wait so food is timed for when you sit down. Recommend the udon with tempura. Both were delicious. Very reasonably priced for the quality.

One of the nicest udon I've eaten. Restaurant has very limited seating so make sure you go early, otherwise be prepared to wait. Ordered tempura to go with the udon. Also very good and batter was light!

It was an hour queue in winter chill, and it was an orderly system. We ordered the tempura fish cold udon and the beef cold udon. Fresh made food is always a joy to eat, and I highly recommended cold vs hot udon as cold...More

No. They make the udon on the spot. You can watch them. It’s open very late. You won’t have a problem.
