  • Amazing udon! They have a delicious braised pork belly appetizer!
  • Start out with some fine tempura, like the savory soft boiled egg fried in a light crunchy batter, before the main event: sea urchin cream udon ($15.95).
  • Sit at the counter so you can watch them make udon.
  • Their udon is amazing! You can see them make it in the kitchen!
  • Fantastic udon here. So unique and creamy. I definitely recommend this place for lunch or whenever you would like to eat here.

  • It wasn't on the menu but they have uni udon!
  • Get a table at the counter for some high quality udon entertainment.
  • Handmade udon!
  • All Udons are delicious except curry. The Toro and Pork Belly dishes are unbelievable
  • Wow! The most creamy and unique udon I've had! Sea urchin cream udon was so good! I enjoyed watching how udon was made too!
  • Recommended dishes: Fried chicken skin, grilled chicken with ginger sauce, scallop carpaccio, kake udon, zaru udon, plum shiso bukkake udon, cod roe butter squid udon.

  • Mintaiko Squid Udon was really good!
  • I suggest the seafood ramen. It has a tomato base! Delicious
  • Uni cream udon is so good if you like creamy dishes. Their cold udon is heaven in the summer.
  • Plump ribbons of pearly white udon that go from dough to giant slicer right in front of your eyes. A giant mound of shredded beef is what youll order in your udon soup.
  • The plum onigiri have just a dusting and no substance; you will feel ripped off.
