If I could, I would give this place three and a half stars. Okakita is a restaurant specialising in noodles. The service was friendly and efficient. I had a bowl of udon with shredded, deep-fried tofu and beaten egg. The dish was good, but not...More

The most amazing udon! We had to queue for a table for about an hour, but it was worth the wait. The egg soup udon with tempura shrimp is a hands down winner. The staff do not speak very good English, but we got by...More

The udon is excellent! Expect a long line. While in line the staff provided an English menu and took orders. So by the time we got in (~40min) the food arrived at our table very quickly. I had the 'Nishin' which was fish (herring) with...More

This place was recommended by our guide. Lovely atmosphere. However, none of the staff spoke English. The food was good, put the portions were small. It took forever to get our waitresses attention.

My family enjoyed the udon and food there very much. We went there on a Thursday morning around 10:45am and there was a queue. We are amongst the first batch to be in once it opened. Everyone seems to know what to order and they...More

goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
