Great atmosphere, affordable prices, amazing staff and food. Their soba noodles are perfect on their own, or they offer a variety of toppings.

Tempura soba was good. Friends complimented that the duck and mushroom soba was good too. The buckwheat tea is really refreshing too! Highly recommended. We bought their soba noodles and dipping sauce back too. Try their soba dumpling in azuki bean dessert too!

Great duck, cold soba, and tempura for my son. It was great to try grating the fresh wasabi, with the noodles and trying ginger with great raw meat.
