Japanese noodles and Tempura
Excellent. Authentic. Nice staff and chef. Everything looked great. I had the wakame cold noodles and some assorted tempura. Free ice cold barley tea was great. [ Nov 2019 ] Tripadvisor.

Japanese Noodle Bar


★★★★★ Amazing!
Finally went to try the new Hungry Wombat and man, did it impress! The curry udon was the best I’ve had – all made from scratch and the tempura is perfectly made. Also highly recommend the cold noodle. Staff were so lovely and they make everything by hand including the noodles. 10/10. [ Jul 2019 ] Tripadvisor.
