    Super cozy spot with great authentic food. Udon is amazing. If you are in a sushi mode, sushi tacos are pretty delicious.

    It's hard to find a good udon place in Brooklyn. Samurai mama does a pretty good udon

    Peter Shum · January 12
  • John-Carlos L.

    The bukkake noodles were perfect, the texture of the poached egg was incredible and their spicy sushi rolls have ruined other local sushi spots

  • Gaby G.

    The wait is always worth it, but come on a weeknight to avoid the line. Try your udon with a poached egg on top.

    The braised pork udon noodles are the only thing you need to think about.

    They have a waiting room in the back

    Pork curry udon and pork gyoza were terrific. Good service. Nice environment. Met or exceeded my expectations in every way.

    Thomas Gayvert · December 31, 2015
  • Nicole V.

    Very cheap for the quality of the food and the portions per serving. The "tacos" are a must.

    Nicole Vila · December 24, 2015
  • Phillip B.

    The taco set was great and I also enjoyed the Wakame Udon with pork belly and a poached egg.

    Phillip B · December 20, 2015
  • Sunny C.

    I prefer the dipping style, soup has a great balance.

    Sunny Chen · December 16, 2015
  • Cameron M.

    Split the gyoza, sushi and a bowl of udon for a nice date experience.

    Good Japanese food in Williamsburg area! Try the pork belly - they were so soft and served on top of fried udon.

    Tiffany · November 19, 2015
  • Diana G.

    Sushi tacos are amazing!!! 😍

    Diana García · November 16, 2015
  • Brian P.

    New contemporary take on japanese. Three different soy sauce blends based on intensity and udon noodle served with broth separate from the dish. It's not pretentious, it's actually all quite good.

    Brian Park · November 10, 2015
  • Sahil K.

    Udon is phenomenal. This and Samurai Papa are some of the best noodle houses in Brooklyn

    Sahil Kathawala · November 5, 2015

    Super cozy atmosphere and great good quality Japanese food. The classic place for local week-time dinner.

    Valeria Breda · November 3, 2015
  • Destiny C.

    Get the sushi tacos. Not at all what you would think. And the Wasabi Margarita, yes, and more yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!

    Destiny Chambers · November 3, 2015
  • Nancy A.

    To die for udon, sushi "tacos"- servers give great recommendations- ask them! The communal table up front is fun, but pass thro the kitchen and there's a whole cozy seating space + bar in back

    Nancy Ackenhausen · October 25, 2015
  • Alex C.

    The udon here really makes me think

    Alex Choi · October 5, 2015
  • Jesse B.

    Fun menu, I went surf & turf, the bukkake ramen isn't worth it so try the other stuff

    Jesse Bagels · October 4, 2015
  • Eugene B.

    Great udon and Gyoza. Don't be afraid to aggressively hail down the server - they are pretty absent minded and slow. Food should also come at the same time, not after one person has finished eating.

    Eugene B · October 3, 2015

    Best Asian food in Williamsburg

    There are very few places that serve cold udon period. This place does it amazingly well. One of my favorites.

    Cold Udon. This is a classic.

    Udon is great

    Ramen, tuna nigiri, udon noodles

    Carlos Roqué · August 26, 2015

    Killer meal! You cannot go wrong here. Get the taco sampler, house margarita and an udon dish

    Oz Lubling · August 12, 2015
  • Julie V.

    Oh. Yes. Yes. Yes.

    Julie V · August 1, 2015

    An affordable Japanese spot with excellent pork gyoza, sushi 'taco' rolls, & udon (get the kinoko tsukcjil)

    Emily Wilson · July 28, 2015
  • Saarim Z.

    Whether or not you get udon, pork gyoza is a must

    Saarim Zaman · July 28, 2015

    Try the Bukkake

    We've tried almost everything on the menu at this point and all I can say is good things! Everything is delicious! We love getting the taco set!

    You have to try the pork dip sauce and the seafood curry udon combined. It was so delicious

    Blue Jameson · May 17, 2015
  • Leigh Q.

    This is my favorite Japanese spot. I'm usually more of a traditionalist, but I just adore the atmosphere here, and the food is spot on. Everything I've tried is pure delight.
