The simple Kitsune Udon (Udon with sweet tofu) is excellent. The Udon is nice and chewy and the soup so tasty. Or try the Udon with Tempura for a simply amazing meal.
Was lured to this establishment by the Lonely Planet guide and was not too impressed. Food was good, no doubt, only just your typical Japanese fare and you can get similar eats and more variety along the Dotonbori area.
The food is not bad, but it is certainly not great. I'm a little puzzled with the glowing reviews and rather steep prices for something so usual. Food was at best, average. Given the choices around dotonbori, I wished I had utilised my stomach capacity elsewhere.
