This is a little noodle restaurant with 4 or 5 things on the menu and they are all variations of noodles. The patrons seat along a U-shaped counter and are served the soups of their choice. The menu is limited but the food is tasty.

This restaurant goes back to the days of my parents. It is actually an informal sit down restaurant in a building, not a "stand". It does not have the most comfortable seating and it can be crowded and there can be a wait, but if...More

The chicken skewers are better than the beef. The thing to order are these and the special saimin. We were the only non- locals in the place. They say to order the pie but we never have any room left. One large and one medium...More
