We had udon and tempura, for 1,980 yen each. We were not impressed. The food was not well prepared, and even if it had been, udon and tempura shouldn’t cost that much. When we arrived, there was a long line. Why was there a long...More

If you’re near the philosophers path in Kyoto, or near the Bamboo. This is the perfect place for Udon. It’s very busy so expect to wait. But certainly worth the wait.

Tasty broth in which you add your sesame seeds and veggies yourself and then dip your udon noodles. Great tempura mix to go with it. The restaurant itself had a stylish & cozy setting with jazzy background music. Best udon I ever ate!

AMAZING udon here! Such a find and would highly recommend if visiting Gion. Lovely, fresh udon with broth and lots of delicious fresh toppings. Menu suitable for vegetarians and vegans too which isn’t always the case in Japan. Very friendly staff too. A delight!

As with many Japanese restaurants this place is small (maybe 15 seats maximum) so we had to wait for a table, but it was worth it. The texture of the udon was excellent and whilst the broth was a little bland, the condiments they provide...More

Great Udon, lovely staff, English menu, and very easy to get a great vegetarian meal. Cannot recommend highly enough - fantastic location, opens at 5, just in time for an early dinner and beer before seeing the nighttime illuminations at Kodaiji. Try the Yuzu Sake...More

The restaurant is located north of Kiyumizi Temple, just as you leave or enter the shops leading up to the temple and at the end of Ichinen-zaka. We stopped in after a long morning of sightseeing and were rewarded with a terrific udon lunch. The...More
