Stopped in for lunch and had some great homemade kitsune udon and tea. The waitress was nice and attentive and I loved the J-pop playing in the background. They have live music on Fridays and Saturdays and show a variety of Japanese movies on Thursday...More

Best noodles in upstate NY. Subtle flavors, lots of variety, filling. Watch for occasional cultural events, including live music.

Staff were very patient in helping me narrow down what to try, since I'd never been there before, was unfamiliar with the food. I needed protein, something healthy and restorative. I was not disappointed.

Food was ok-ordered steamed dumplings and the udon dishes and both were fresh and decent. The 2 guys working this night (Dec. 23) couldn't get it together. Waited forever while the server kept skimming foam off our beer glasses because the keg was dying. Finally...More

We are visiting New Paltz from Queens, NY, and others are from NJ. We just did a 3-hour hike and we were famished. They sat us at around 4PM and then we started ordering. We were told the kitchen opens at 4:30PM so we had...More

Went there and it did disappoint. I was expecting more basing on the reviews, but other than the fried chicken everything was bland and mediocre for the price. Oh. And they did not have rice, after arriving and waiting for 10-15 minutes ordering Don buri...More

Four of us had a variety of dishes. It was live music night, so the menu was not as extensive as usual. It was mostly soups.... On the positive, the food was quite tasty. But the portions were small. The broth bowls were large, but...More

We ate here recently with our 11 year old daughters. The brown rice and salmon, and the dumplings and rice came with miso soup, and were both great. The steamed buns were also as good as I've had anywhere. The owners were very welcoming. A...More

"Umami" is a flavor that found in many Japanese dishes which deepers and rounds out the taste. This leaves a deep sense of satisfaction. Prior to opening Gomen-Kudasai, I have developed my original "Kaeshi" Mother Sauce. Our "Kaeshi" fermentation takes 6 months before going into our broth and finally into your bowl of noodle soup full of "Umami" and incredible healing power. Thanks to our true Umami, all of our dishes are served to you MSG-FREE. Kazuma and I would like to share our belief of "E-Shoku-Doh-Gen: Food is the Best Medicine" through our noodle soup. Please enjoy noodling with us!
