“Reliable quality and atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Felt like a very local, authentic place to eat but helpful instructions in English on how to enjoy the cold or hot noodles. Enough variety but not overwhelming menu.

“Classic udon spot”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

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.

“Unlike any other noodles”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

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.

“Our favorite meal in Kyoto”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

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.
