"The hot dish was a beef atsu-atsu. I think the meat was brisket; slow-cooked, it was falling into shreds, and came with a broth of beautifully judged weight, meaty and enveloping without being too rich. The balance of these components and the great noodles was unimprovably good." READ REVIEW

"The tempura is impeccable. A plate of mixed veg – okra, broccoli, red pepper, asparagus, mushroom, courgette, something else I forget – was beautifully dry and sparky." READ REVIEW

"Fitting with the 'do one thing very well' philosophy so common in Japanese restaurant culture, the menu features variants of only udon (no other noodle varieties), listed in a manner that might baffle noodle novices." READ REVIEW
