This Tokyo-based chain serves a relatively spicy curry-flavored bowl of udon noodles with a small but appealing selection of toppings. Plump tempura-fried prawn is probably the most popular of these; other options include banana tempura, fried tofu, cheese, and mochi (rice cakes) toppings, tsukemen dipping noodles, or an Indian-influenced keema curry udon with minced chicken and pork.

The udon noodles themselves are quite flavorful, and thin slivers of crisp green beans in the bowl provide pleasantly contrasting texture. If you're not in a curry mood, you can choose from more traditional-style regular udon, and if you're not in an udon mood you can get curry rice. The dining area is simple but modern in feel, with counters looking out over the building's six-story atrium.
