Tips

  • Definitely get an order of the fried chicken to start, then go for any of the udon bowls.
  • You can now choose between the thick and thin noodles in your udon.
  • Handmade udon but not freshly handmade udon. Thick udon is not as thick. Overall udon + broth is OK.
  • New udon spot in the East Village. Generous portions and pretty authentic. The ankake udon is bomb. They offer Kaedama and its cash only. Highly recommended!
  • These noodles are like a cross between the common udon we are familiar with and Italian linguine. The simplest, featuring fried bean curd or egg comes with seaweed or tempura (pick veg. or shrimp).
  • A great new Japanese addition to the EV. Same owners as Kura and similar clean interior. The tempura udons don't disappoint and neither does the katsu don. Down it with some sake. Cash only!
  • Curry udon smells so good
  • Ankimo is a good choice for a starter. Niku udon was really good. Tender beef and rich broth. Tripe was really nice. Friendly and fast service, even when it's busy.
  • the udon is unlike any other udon you've had in nyc. super chewy and melty. can't go wrong with the beef/honeycomb tripe, chicken with mochi or egg ones. fried chicken is OKAY.
  • Tried Kamaage Udon($9), which is plain udon, to check their udon quality. It was chewy enough to enjoy the noodle. Dipping udon in sauce mixed with scallion and quail egg was interesting.
  • The ankake udon is really unique and delicious. Tiny little space with a hip & minimalist decor.
  • I'm obsessed with this place!
  • Very intimate and aesthetic place. Go for 'niku udon'their signature dish with beef short ribs in a two-favored broth
  • Niki udon. I dream about this place.
  • Niku Udon!!!!!
  • Nice little cash only Udon shop with big portions for ~$15 per person before tax and tip
  • Fried chicken is amazing, udon bowls are massive and delicious.
  • Awesome, chewy udon noodles with some interesting soups: I liked the Niku Udon with short rib and tripe. The wait is worth it; just go somewhere on the block for a drink.
  • Delicious, fresh, good flavor! A wonderful treat in a cute space.
  • The egg udon is surprisingly the best!!
