While all the reviews suggested we should be ordering noodles, we found the sashimi and a la carte menu fantastic. The service was great. Traditional tatami mat set up - though you can sit at the counter. There is also an english menu.

This is listed in Lonely Planet, so I was expecting it to be full of westerners, but we were pleasantly surprised. It had a great local feel to it. Glad we booked as it was pretty full on arrival.

The last order was called a little after 9pm, so best not to head here for a late dinner after a day of site seeing.

Omen was my favourite noodle eating experience during my visit to Kyoto. The service was great, they had an English menu and the noodles were delicious. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere - not touristy at all. I highly recommend visiting Omen for a great meal!

By the time we finished our walk on philosopher's path ,they were about to close for dinner. So they helped us find the way to the other shop near Shijo Kawaramachi.
It is a non-smoking restaurant which is quite rare in Kyoto ! The noodles and the dashi were very tasty. It was a cozy restaurant and a perfect choice for a day trip to Kyoto both for the food and atmosphere.

A great Noodle restaurant in Northern Higashiyama, Kyoto, almost only used by Japanese but with an English menu. You can sit Japanese style at a low table or at a bar, where you can watch the chef preparing beautiful dishes with great care. We had a set Japanese menu, with a great variety of excellent tasty different dishes. The whole evening was great entertainment, chef and people watching, in an authentic not touristy place. Omen appears to be popular with business men entertaining very attractive young women; probably not their daughters! It is not cheap- about £60 for 2 including two types of Sake and beers. Well worth seeking out if you are in Kyoto.
