Lonely Planet review for Imai Honten
One of the area's oldest and most revered udon specialists and our favourite place on the strip. Try the tendon (tempura over rice; ¥1575). An oasis of calm amid the chaos (the no-mobile-phone policy ensures quiet), it's sandwiched between two pachinko parlours. There's no English sign, but the traditional front stands out among the glitter.
