We ordered three small-plate starters/salads to share, then everyone had their own noodle soup. All of us ordered hot udon with hot broth. I asked for vegetarian broth and it wasn’t a problem.
The fresh noodles were amazing: slippery and chewy. Yum! I loved my toppings too: fried tofu with fresh spring onion.
They are open everyday from 12:00 – 15:00 and 17:30 – 22:30 (Sunday to 22:00). Koya focuses on the friendly characteristic of udon and proposes various recipes, delicious to both Japanese and non-Japanese alike.
My advice would be to go and sit down at the counter and watch the team in action and if you have opportunity speak to the chef.
Koya believes their genuine and honest attitude will establish an eatery to be loved by all. I believe it too!
