We went here at recommendation of our hotel. The service was wonderful and the food to match. Not surprising that it is booked days in advance. We had to book 3 days in advance to have a return visit. So book early

We were really looking forward to a hot bowl of noodles but came away disappointed. We ordered soba noodles in soup. Perhaps we are used to a certain style of Soba, as we found the texture of the soba a bit mushy and soft, not...More

Sorry to disappoint but this place is for soba. If you want ramen, do try Happo Bijin or the other local ramen shops.
