Just like DC, long on reputation short on deliverable. Food is good but boring. The rainbow noodles a real yawner. You need a magnifying glass to find the bream in the signature dish. Go hit the allies close by, more choices with higher value.

Visited this restaurant in September on a rainy Saturday’s evening at around 8pm. The place was packed with locals and tourists, and we didn’t make any reservation, but lucky enough we got a table at the upper level in within 15 mins. The staffs are...More

It is a typical Japanese restaurant. You sit on the floor on tatami mats. An English menu is available. The food - the rainbow noodles - are good, but nothing special. Overall, the set menus are huge and you get a lot of different local...More

I took "Iyo Satsuma", a famous dish of this region. Since this restaurant has a good reputation, I expected much. However, it tastes just like a kind of Ochazuke. I was a little bit disappointed. Maybe I should have ordered something else.

The restaurant is run by the manufacturer of the famous local Goshiki (5 colors) somen noodles. You can obviously sample Goshiki somen at other restaurants and hotels in Matsuyama, but for some, it has to be the original.

Very traditional restaurant in the Okaido area of Matsuyama (a few dozen meters to the right once you cross the arcade, coming from the Okaido tram station). Service was discreet (private room), the deco simple and traditional Japanese. Food was yummy and prices very good.

It's 5 colored noodles at 5 times the price. Yes, it's one of the few true places to get Matsuyama cuisine. We tried both the noodles in a hot broth and as tsukemen. With 2 beers, it came out to over 4000 yen. If you're...More
