Small Udon stall on the roof of Seibu. Fantastic environment with a lot of tables, very calm and great udon for a cheap price. Definitely worth it.

I’m a regular customer and the 限定 (gentei) menu every month is very interesting. This month they have the spicy chicken and soft boiled egg, VERY delicious with 揚げ玉 (agedama). Mix it well and the flavor is wonderful.

Great noodles with great seating at a great price. There's no English menu available, but the pictures are pretty straightforward. Unlike smaller noodle places, there was no waiting here. The noodles tasted freshly made, and the broth was very flavorful. I would come here to relax after a day in Ikebukuro.
