We stopped at Omen today towards the end of our trip on the Philosophers Walk. We are in our fourth week in Japan and this was probably the best meal I've had so far. It was delicious. I had a side of the grilled chicken with homemade spicy sauce - it was juicy and tender and very good. For a main I had the Omen noodles with mountain vegetables and vegetable tempura. I'm not usually a fan of tempura but this was really good stuff, certainly the best I've ever had. The noodles, vegetables and tempura all come on separate bowls and you place them in a larger bowl with a broth inside (SO good!).
The setting is traditional Japanese - you sit on mats on the floor (there are some tables), a small table in between, and the waiters wear a kind of kimono. It has a nice vibe.
My girlfriend also got the omen noodles with tempura and it cost us 4,400¥ - worth every yen. Definitely drop in if you are taking the Philosopher's Walk. It is towards the end, turn left down the last street before the street going up to the Ginkakuji Temple. Walk to the intersection and it will be on your right.
