Fresh made noodles and soup made from scratch before your eyes. Packed with locals, always a good sign. Friendly and cheerful staff but no English spoken. Beef and shrimp both excellent choices and tasty tempura in the udon.

I went at 11am to queue for half an hour to get in here. Well worth the wait - the place is packed with locals. I had the beef noodles - best noodles on my trip. Highly recommended.

Very cheap and interesting experience. The freshest udon you'll try. The udon is prepared from a slab of dough, cooked, and served within 5-10 minutes from your order. I wouldn't suggest a group any larger than 4 as it's quite a small restaurant.

I was told this is a famous one. I guess this is famous for the price. Soup was a bit sour and the noodle was really thick (over cooked) It is not worth it to find this restaurant. Tenpura was also too much oily.... Beef...More
