Made in-house daily from scratch, the versatile udon noodles are the star of the show on UDN’s menu. They can be ordered in the Traditional Ramen, Curry Ramen and Chicken Katsu dishes, with more varieties set to be added to the menu over the coming months. 

The house-made traditional stocks are left simmering for hours to pack maximum flavour into each bowl, which can also be customised with additional toppings to suit every palate.
