I’m usually not a big fan of Udon, but this turned out to be one of my favorite meals in Japan!

The service is amazing even before you step into the restaurant. We arrived around 12 PM, right before the lunch rush, on a Sunday. We waited for only 15 minutes outside and during that time, one of the servers greeted us and provided us in English menu. She took our orders and by the time we were seated, the food arrived within five minutes. During our meal, the owner, who was so warm and welcoming, often checked in on us and made sure we had everything we needed.

I ordered the cold noodles while my husband ordered the hot. We enjoyed both dishes, but preferred the cold Udon a little more. The udon was fresh and had a nice chewy texture to it. The tempura was perfectly crisp and seasoned and was not oily at all. My favorite was the kabocha squash and squid! We also added the chicken tempura which was delicious.

We paired our meals with plum wine (great quality) for the two of us and the final total was only $22 USD!

Wish we had discovered this restaurant sooner while we were in Tokyo - absolutely a hidden gem!


Must visit place for everybody who loves udon!!! We came here due to the recommendation from the Michelin Guide and really enjoyed their udon! Also the tempura was soooooo good! My favorite one was the squid tempura! It was so juicy almost like chicken 🤩


Udon & Great Service!
Neighborhood joint, homey and nice.
Great service from ladies who really cared about their customers!
Order a dry and a soup udon and you’ll be very satisfied!
