“Well... No surprises here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

In one sentance: it is worse than mcDonald's. In two: if u like food that tastes like jelly, this is your place. I know its fast food, but still- if your coke is the best dish on the table... Udon, we have a problem. Never again.

“Dissapointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

as we are handed our menu, the waitress points to the deep fried salmon tempura and says "this is good" and walks away. We figured that kind of minimalistic marketing must mean it was good. Boy were we wrong. The dish came about an hour after our main dish. the salmon was cold, the tempura was soggy, and even worse, it wasnt fresh salmon but thick chunks of salted lox. It was obvious the dish was disgusting, but they didn't say anything and rang us up for the dish we didn't eat more than one bite of. the noodles were greasy, and overall, probably my bad for going to an Asian restaurant in Spain. avoid this place.

“Great for early dinner with young kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had a great dinner with out young family. Kids made a mess as kids do and we still felt welcome. Food was great and the 10€ bottle of tempranillo did the job just fine after walking around for hours on end. Fast service, Reasonable pricing. I'd go back.

“Good noodles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

The UDON chain serves great noodle dishes. It is a bit expensive but all its restaurants are very nice and the quality of the food has never let me down.

“Decent noodle bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is Barcelona: international cuisine isn't widespread here, to say the least. In this context, the UDON at least offers some decent noodle dishes and a good selection of teas. The stylish minimalist design might not be everyone's favourite. They seem to be trying to follow the "Wagamama" example of long communal benches. There are a few separate seating niches for couples though, too, so you might even go here for a relaxed date.
