We had to wait about 20 minutes on a Wednesday evening for a place for 2. It was well worth the wait. I hope they come to London soon as I love Wagamama and these guys beat them hands down.

It's not too difficult to find, just down some side streets.

Of you're in downtown Kyoto give it a try.

The ramen (noodle soup) is really delicious! service is fantastic, and I also enjoyed the dumplings (gyoza) – size is small, so don't hesitate to order 10 of those!

The prices are really low..

Had no trouble finding this place. Only a short wait to get in, good atmosphere and great food. English menus are available. Dinner for 2 with beers approx €23. Wish I'd found it sooner! A must visit for dinner!!

This is just one block from the shijo subway. Easy to find. We had to queue. Obviously a popular spot. Staff were great and provided an English menu. Only 3 choices of main course. You can get extra sides and toppings. Great value. Very fast service. Pity there is only one choice of drink. At least it was beer. You wouldn't spend more than 30 minutes here. It seems to have a quick turnaround of customers. Would highly recommend.

Tried to locate this place on google map without success until I keyed in Hakata Ippudo.
It's actually very easy to find. Just look for Daimaru department store on Shijo-dori main road. The restaurant is behind Daimaru on a smaller road called Nishikikoji-dori. You can walk through the department store and exit into Nishikikoji-dori, turn left and you are there. Or if coming from Nishiki market just walk straight past Daimaru and look for the sign Ippudo on your left.
We were there for dinner at 6.00pm on a Friday and it was already crowded but were first in line and didn't have to wait long. Standard drinks are the cold tea ( which you help yourself to) or order the beer which goes well with the assorted pickles at your table ( again which you help yourself to ). Had the special which came with seaweed, egg and extra pork. Slurped it all down. We also had the gyoza ( fried dumplings ).
When we left the restaurant at about 6.35pm there was a long queue outside so my advice is to come early.
