We had the cold udon and it was super delicious. The udon was refreshing, the sauce was not too salty which most Japanese dishes are, and the fried dishes were not too oily.

Definitely under rated, and would come again :)


Ordered the signature cold udon and hot tempura udon. Probably the best udon I had in Japan!


Best udon ever. Honestly I don't even know how to describe it. Try it out, you won't be disappointed
