Lovely house close to Ginkaku-ji. Classic interior, with a tatami mats and a bar area, with a reassuringly large local crowd (given its in guidebooks and close to a main temple). Simple noodles, hot broth, 7 vegetables and sesame, all delicious when mixed together.

Good value, prompt service and recommended if in the area.

This places offers what seems like regular udon noodles, but they arent. Apart from the beauty of the plates when they are served, they are remarkably tasty. I like udon everywhere, but this place has something special- the delicious vegetables, the sesame, the noodles served separately from the broth - something about all of it together is just delicious. Dont forget to try the other dishes - they change with the seasons but each time they are just amazing.

We were seated upstairs and had lovely service. The food was delicious and each dish memorable. I still think of the persimmon salad with green tea leaves and tofu dressing. Helpful staff for non-Japanese speakers.

Expensive but worth it. Chilled udon with the freshest tastiest vegetables imaginable. Dark classic interior. Friendly staff.

While all the reviews suggested we should be ordering noodles, we found the sashimi and a la carte menu fantastic. The service was great. Traditional tatami mat set up - though you can sit at the counter. There is also an english menu.

This is listed in Lonely Planet, so I was expecting it to be full of westerners, but we were pleasantly surprised. It had a great local feel to it. Glad we booked as it was pretty full on arrival.

The last order was called a little after 9pm, so best not to head here for a late dinner after a day of site seeing.
