It was a hot hot Sunday in March and we both were wondering what we should have for a quick lunch. We then headed to Nihonmachi in hope of finding a place that offers a quick good meal. Spotted on, Gyunoya with its luminated bright orange sign. Without hesitation, we agreed to give it a go.

Gyunoya, from our quick first glance, is pretty much similar to Yoshinoya in term of looking, menu, and style: a place that offers quick gyudon meal. Well, copy or not is not our point here. How it taste is what does matter. Gyunoya is very compact with perhaps around 12 seats only (seats are in U-shape counter). Foods are served fast. The concept is perhaps a quick nice meal to create turnover. Things are really fast here. You will probably get your order within a few minutes.

We went for Beef Bowl with an additional Soft Boiled Egg (THB140 + THB30) and Sukiyaki Beef Bowl (THB140). Beef Bowl was more flavourful for us (5/10). An additional of soft boiled egg was no mistake. Really an enjoyable quick dish. Sukiyaki Beef Bowl was as well pleasant but lighter in taste (4/10). But with more dimension in term of texture and taste due to variety of ingredient.

Well, don't expect much about this place but just enjoy your quick meal: service is not surely outstanding and quality of ingredients is just ok. In fact, we think that Gyunoya is a lot better than Yoshinoya in Thailand. Anyway, just our opinion though, try it yourself to see whether you will like it.
