    The pork belly is a must! Pork udon is my usual go-to at Koya, but I tried the chicken and egg udon hotpot which was tasty, but nothing particularly special about it. I did think it was quite expensive for what I got (the hotpot) but the pork belly is definitely worth it.

    Great food, friendly service (but sometimes difficult to catch the waitresses eye). Unfortunately quite a few of the items on the menu weren't available which was disappointing.

    Good overall but too much Koromo for prawn tempra - making it as three times as big as the size of the prawn on its own...

    It was okay, wasn’t wow by it, think the one in soho is better. The tempura don was not nice because the tempura was soaked into a sauce so it’s nor crispy at all, but soggy dough wrapped vegetables and prawn, and the batter wasn’t cooked through either. We did complain and they took it off the bill, but we paid half anyway.... maybe should just have the udon which is what they are specialised for!

    Went with 3 other friends. None of us loved our meal. The mackerel udon had lots of bones in it. The chicken hot pot had small dry pieces of chicken. The service was fine but the ambiance lacking. It looked like the restaurant was unfinished.

    It's such a nice experience for us with a kid(18month) - as the main Koya in soho don't have a facility for baby changing, but here in Koya city, based on its bigger space, they have a baby changing bathroom as well as they provide high chair for kids and they even have a half size of "kake" udon(most simple hot udon) on their menu, which I ordered for my kid and she loved it a lot! I would definitely come back, and highly recommend for family visit.(I've already recommended to my mum friends!!!)

    Koya City was great! I ended up going there to avoid queing outside of the Koya Soho. This time I tried the pork belly (an absolute must) as well as some rice and miso. The kakeage was a little disappointing, but overall good. IF you are going to try to find this place for the first time, don't solely rely on the GPS because it doesn't work in this BANK area... so rely on your sense of direction and logic.
