Average taste of noodle but my wife liked it very much. The staff was not so friendly or maybe we just came in a very busy time with many customers still waiting outside. I will recommend it highly.

The restaurant staff, atmosphere and food were beyond amazing! They went out of their way to teach me the proper way to mix and eat the Udon. It was incredibly delicious, I only I wish I had more room!! After lunch to show a bit...More

We were a party of four and we all ordered the udon with tempura. Everyone raved about the tempura, it was delicious. We all enjoyed the udon however we felt the dipping broth could have been more flavorful. The noodles were very good but the...More

It’s a good omen when you have to wait half an hour for a table. We were there for dinner and arrived at 6.50pm but it was full since it’s a small restaurant. To add to the stress, they close at 8pm. Fortunately, we persevered....More

This is one of those restaurants that one can come to eat often - unpretentious, consistently good and not too expensive. We eat here three times and the third time the staff already greeted us with "welcome back". Udon noodles are served with very interesting...More

The udon here is amazing! It's not like any other udon I've tried. It's served with yuzu, which adds a lot of flavor and the texture is perfectly chewy, and you can tell it was freshly handmade. The restaurant also had such a nice atmosphere...More

So this is how udon is supposed to be! The fresh noodles have a remarkable texture with a bit more “bite” and “chew” than the store-bought stuff. The simple dipping broth is enhanced with flavorings of your choosing, and only gets better as you continue...More

Worth scheduling ones visit to (very) local temples & Philosophers walk around lunch at this restaurant. Small but busy the staff are very friendly & the English menu available compensated for lack of spoken English. The udon with tempura is sensational as is the set...More

Located near Ginkaku-ji and the Philosopher's Walk. Very popular and always has a line. Delicious udon served with all of the traditional condiments. Special mention goes to the seasonal kamo (duck) udon with tender slices of duck breast and a robust broth.
