The Udon dishes were delicious. Service is fast and efficient. It’s a must try while in Osaka. We arrived early so we didn’t have to wait but the queue built up after 6.30pm.

Friendly staffs to start off with, menu in English is limited comparing to the one in Japanese, ordered a udon and the broth was plain, shrimp was not fresh (definitely frozen) and the only good thing was the mushroom and you can taste the freshness...More

Although it is in the middle of the frantic Dotombori tourist area, Imai Honten is a quiet and pleasant place for lunch away from the crowds. We ate in the informal downstairs area however there seemed to be a more formal restaurant upstairs. The food...More

A local friend's recommendation. The Kitsune udon was wonderful and a must-try. The udon broth was sweet and light. A breakaway from the thick heavier ramen.

Very select few dishes that were okay. Would recommend ppl to order the fried / tempura dishes as you can’t go wrong with them. My seafood udon was quite boring to be honest.

Small place within busy area, but it is a quiet haven from all the busy outside. Very friendly staff, they strongly try to help you with anything you need. But be aware they have limited English knowledge. Excellent food, soba noodles, tempura and udon soup...More
