Do you want to try tempura soba or udon? This soba restaurant located near Nishi-umeda station serves a variety of noodles including ones with tempura.

The restaurant has a nostalgic atmosphere. They serves uncompromisingly homemade soba and soup that taste amazing. Dipping your tempura into the savory soup while slurping the noodle is the best.

This is a tendon (tempura donburi/rice bowl) shop located just a min from Umeda station and 10 mins walk from Osaka station.
