Time Out says

The freshly made noodles, homely interior, warm staff and quirky trimmings at Choseian make this hidden gem worth seeking out. Inside the cosy interior, several booths and a shared banquette sit under the diffused glow of rattan lamp shades.

Choseian’s thin and dainty noodles make for a satisfying light meal and can be served hot or cold. We love the ebiten soba (¥1,650) – the airy, crisp tempura batter is a perfect match for the tender kuruma ebi prawns, which are accompanied by seasonal vegetable tempura on the side. On the table you’ll find a collection of condiments, such as sea salt from Kochi prefecture and a fragrant mix of Japanese sansho pepper and togarashi (chilli). The drinks menu includes a small but impressive selection of craft sake as well as local beer.

Come evening, Choseian turns into an izakaya, serving a lengthy list of small appetisers in addition to the booze and noodles.

Note that the menu changes regularly.
