I loved the restaurant. There are only tables for 4-6 so if you are solo or couple you will share a table if the restaurant is full, which is fun. The soba is good and very fresh. The prices are good. I had the cold...More

This place is incredible. The soba noodle was fantastic, along with their side dishes! A must to visit when in Tokyo!

We found this place by accident when the one we were heading for was closed. It is extremely friendly, and one of the waitresses went out of her way to bring us an English menu and explain it to us. We had buckwheat soba (hand...More

I've heard legends about this place. They say it was set on fire, and it basically came back from the ashes. It's a zombie restaurant. You can burn this restaurant all you want, but you can't burn that soba-loving spirit and determination. First of all,...More

Pretty popular spot, so we had to wait on line, however it moved quickly and well worth the wait. The staff (especially the host) were absolutely superb. They provided an English menu, and explained the different types of soba they offer. The place is always...More

We visited based on trip advisor ratings. It was a very cozy spot with fantastic udon. The servers were very patient and made great recommendations given our limited Japanese. Food was great and I would highly recommend.

The appearances of this restaurant already demonstrates something different from ubiquitous competitors in Tokyo, it's very old and supposed to be one of the best. We ordered kamaboko (cold fishcake) and yakitori(grilled pieces of chicken) for starter to go along with beer and had a...More

This was our first experience with soba, and we were quite surprised it was served cold (this is of course a matter of preference but it was not to our liking). The portions were rather small compared to the price (2000 yen for a smallish...More
