    Unbelievable non-pretentious Japanese. Try the communal table and make a friend. Udon, gyoza, sushi tacos, and eggplant appetizer are all musts. 😻

    Sushi tacos! Get the "taco set" and sample five delicious (& generously portioned) sushi treats! Pair it with a sumptuous gyoza starter, baked to a perfect brown crispy in a small cast iron skillet.

    If you're craving for a nice bowl of udon noodles, go here! I love the kinoko (mushroom) kake udon served hot. I recommend adding a poached egg and pork belly on top!

    New contemporary take on japanese. Three different soy sauce blends based on intensity and udon noodle served with broth separate from the dish. It's not pretentious, it's actually all quite good.

    Delicious, inexpensive Japanese restaurant specializing in udon. The udon is best I've tried in NY. To be more cozy ask to sit at the bar in the back. A great stop for lunch and dinner.

    This is my favorite Japanese spot. I'm usually more of a traditionalist, but I just adore the atmosphere here, and the food is spot on. Everything I've tried is pure delight.

    Sushi was delish! We had a feast with salmon avocado, tuna avocado and salmon negi. Loved their three type of soya sauce as well! Try also the pork gyozas.

    Super cozy spot with great authentic food. Udon is amazing. If you are in a sushi mode, sushi tacos are pretty delicious.

    Their gyoza is served in a sizzling skillet and you should wash it down with whatever sake the chef recommends that day.

    To die for udon, sushi "tacos"- servers give great recommendations- ask them! The communal table up front is fun, but pass thro the kitchen and there's a whole cozy seating space + bar in back

    The dipping style Kinoko Tsukcjil Udon- Cooked variety of mushrooms dipping sauce - is my go to favorite. Also. Never skip out on the black sesame ice cream for dessert. One of the best.

    Yummy food - ordered the iced ginger mint tea, uni and salmon roe over rice, spicy bukkake udon, and green tea ice cream. Hits the spot. Try it out

    Some of the best most authentic Japanese food I've had. Lunch special ftw -- $10 for huge donburi w salad and soup. Ask for the spicy red pepper for some extra kick

    We always order the tempura to start. They have decent sushi. I personally like their "taco" spin though my husband doesn't. They have affordable lunch specials, too. This place is 1 of our staples.

    We stumbled happily upon this place and had a delightful dinner of udon, dumplings and garlic chicken. Perfect for a cold winter's night, pre movie next door.

    The sushi tacos are pretty crazy. Mostly because the fish tastes super fresh but also because it's a Japanese taco. Can't go wrong.

    Take the 10 pork dumplings. That’s the way to start your meal, they‘ll be gone in an instant. Sushi options are great too.

    Extra spicy wasabi soy — already mixed for ya! Lunch special hits the spot! Got the two roll set and came with cute fixings that made this meal even more enjoyable.

    The udon salad = cold noodles + salad, best of both worlds! And it comes with two delicious dipping sauces.

    The bukkake noodles were perfect, the texture of the poached egg was incredible and their spicy sushi rolls have ruined other local sushi spots

    The curry spice udon is awesome! Don't forget to try the sushi tacos and be careful with the spicy soy sauce, do not over use it, I repeat do not...

    An affordable Japanese spot with excellent pork gyoza, sushi 'taco' rolls, & udon (get the kinoko tsukcjil)

    Great udon and Gyoza. Don't be afraid to aggressively hail down the server - they are pretty absent minded and slow. Food should also come at the same time, not after one person has finished eating.

    Lunch during weekdays are quiet and $12 gets you the sushi special - 4 sushi tacos, salad, pickles and soup all made fresh. Delicious!

    There are very few places that serve cold udon period. This place does it amazingly well. One of my favorites.
