Fodor's Review

Is it all the hypnotic kneading that makes the hand-pulled Sanuki udon noodles here so maddeningly addictive? Ever-present lines of polite Japanese diners and hip Soho-ites are a testament to the pull of the mega tasty steaming dishes served at this tiny stripped-back cult noodle house on Frith Street in Soho. Once inside, start with cold udon on a bamboo basket with pungent miso and pickled pork, and then—if you're up for it—slurp hot udon with smoked mackerel and Japanese green leaves, or fried tofu and green onions. There's pickled plums, prawn tempura, duck-and-rice-in-a-bowl, slow-cooked onsen tamago poached eggs, and braised pork belly dishes, but it's the mighty udon noodle that ultimately prevails.
