Perfect meal for pre/post Ginkaku-ji & Philosopher's path. Hand made soba with well balanced broth (be sure to use the spices at the table to turn it up a notch or two!). Tempura was quality too!

Really??? What's the big deal about this place. It was pretty average. I really wanted to love this place since I love udon but it was nothing spectacular. I had the tempura, it was soggy and breading was unimpressive.

If you have to chose one restaurant in Kyoto to try omen soup, pick this one. The price is okay and this is very good quality, the restaurant is also very nice.
