I did not think this place would have been so loud and crowded around 2:P.M on a Tuesday, however it was. I was seated in a small corner, I could not even read my messages, let alone listen to them on my phone. Everyone is at an arm's distance from you. And I mean the ENTIRE restaurant. The food came out quickly and promptly, and was okay at best. I had a spicy tuna roll and teriyaki drizzled salmon. In addition, there was only one bathroom for this 2nd floor restaurant, where there was a huge line for the ladies room. Not impressed.

Pros: Great Midtown Location

Cons: Noise

Horrible food. Our group had an assorted sashimi plate and each had a bowl of soba. Sashimi was just bearable but disppointing since we paid $30 for 12 sashimi pieces. I had a shrimp tempura soba. The shrimp was OK, but the soba had no vegetable what so ever except a small portion of shreded scallions, and the soba soup was especially horrible. But it was $15. I would pay that money happily if the food was good. But.... I would never ever go this place again. Yuck!!.

Two words: Delicious and Authentic. I used to live and work in Japan for over ten years. One of my American friends from tokyo invited me here for lunch, as he had been before. I was so pleased with our "set-o," which in Japan, means you get a nice tray of various dishes when you order a set-o. We both had an udon, or soba soup heaping with ingredients and flavor, a salad, some Japanese pickles, and either an onigiri (rice triangle wrapped in seaweed), or a bwol of rice; I don't remember. All I remember was how delicious and authentic it was, so much so, that they did not serve coffee; only Japanese tea; we had to go downstairs to the Italian restaurant for an espresso at the bar. I've been back, since, and have thoroughly enjoyed everything on the creative, diverse, and delicious menu. Ten thumbs up for this fantastic Japanese noodle house near Tiffany's.

Pros: Authentic, delicious, diverse.

Cons: On second floor, so, passers by may miss it, unless they know about it.

You never know what you'll find in this city's culinary landscape. And you never know where? 55th St. doesn't seem like a foodee destination, but here it is - the most authentic Japanese udon house I've found. The choices of noodles, flavors, vegetables and meats is overwhelming at first, but you'll get used to it. The waiters are happy to make interesting recommendations to novices. On each table there's a variety of sauces and spices, which you're encouraged to add to your dish; by the end of the meal you mind up with something completely different in your bowl from you started, but it will still be so satisfying. It looked like the Japanese version of the menu had items that weren't on the English menu, but I am sure if you ask everything will be explained.

Cons: little confusing

this is a wonderful noodlehouse, possibly some of the best udon i've had on the eastcoast and its also one of my favorites in the continental US. Sushi is always very good. Since they are a noodle house they specialize in udon and other noodles. this is highly recomended to all noodle and sushi lovers

I went here for lunch and ordered the sushi combo. It came with a (small) salad, large bowl of udon, and 6 pieces of sushi plus wrapped rice (not sure what that was called.) I didn't care much for the udon. I loved the sushi however and was disappointed that the sushi combo only came with 6 pieces of, albeit delicious, sushi. The price was decent though and the service was excellent. All in all, a good place that I'd gladly visit again, but I'd order just the sushi next time.
