We came to Nara to see the Big Buddha and on our way back to the station decided to get something to eat. This place is located next to the station in a colorful street full with restaurants.
The restaurant is very nice inside and they have this private booths at the entrance, which was new to us. Also, they have amazing A/C. The privacy and the A/C while eating added a lot to the experience. The staff is extremely friendly and helped us to choose something without fish on it.
The food was a delight. The taste couldn't be better, it feels fresh and cooked properly. Watch the pictures since describing the taste won't be enough.
I would recommend, before going to this place, to memorize a few phrases and words regarding food you like/dislike. Only one server spoke English. Overall, we had a great food and time there.

After visiting the famous Nara Deer Park along with temples in the area, my family came upon this restaurant on the walk back to the Train station. They seated us promptly in a very nice booth that we could close the doors and have privacy. There was a button to press for service and when we did, the staff came immediately. The menu featured a wide variety of Japanese food including Sushi, Noodle Bowls, rice bowls and more. It was reasonably priced and the food was very good. While it might not be a true foodie or gourmet restaurant, the combination of great service, clean/nice atmosphere for eating and very good food made for an overall excellent experience.

It's cheap and awesome! Soy sauce here is perfectly suitable for tofu. Fish is fresh and nicely treat. Love it!

We had lunch here at Happo after it was recommended to us by the tour guide. We got this set deal, where your meal comes with a don of your choice, paired with a bowl of noodle soup. English menus were available, and they come with pictures, so you can easily point to the items that you would like to order. We got the oyako don, beef don and tempura don. The food was pretty good (honestly, you can never go wrong with Japanese food =P) and the portion sizes were decent for a single person, but might be a tad too much if you are small eater. Prices were very affordable as well, considering you get a don plus a bowl of noodles! I really liked the ambience as well. Even though the place itself wasn’t very big, the tables were spaced quite nicely and felt quite private.

Perfectly good food. Nice English picture menu. Reasonably priced. Good if you want a reliable meal with diverse choices, just nothing special. If you go, the fresh tofu in bamboo basket and the grilled rice ball with miso were memorable.
