We went in to Soba Nippon by accident. We (6 of us) were looking for lunch in Midtown on Dec 30. Not an easy thing to do without major waits. It was a bit late but surprisingly this one had an open table. Lunch was...More

We've been looking around for a place to eat on a cold December night and we ended up at this restaurant. Place looked warm and inviting. Food was good - we had tempura, nabeyaki udon and sukiyaki. They didn't have sushi but that was ok....More

Love this place for lunch. (For dinner, the room is too big and empty) The food is wonderful. Soba is made fresh from their own farm, which they are justly proud of. The service is great and the food is wonderful. I particularly love the...More

Food is 5 stars for sure. The setting and interior are pretty nice, just gets extremely crowded during lunch time. They won't even consider you if you don't have a reservation for lunch. I always get the Chicken Soba Salad to-go for lunch and bring...More

This is a frequent weekday lunch spot for me, especially in cold weather when I crave a big bowl of soba with hot broth. Rule 1: Always make reservation, even at noon for 2 people, because bus loads of Japanese tourists often take many of...More

A midweek dinner here turned into an exercise in frustration. I understood going in that Soba Nippon is not a sushi restaurant. But they offered several sushi-like dishes, which is one reason I went there. Unfortunately, there was no toro. Fine, how about lobster and...More

Am back again and find that the soba is not as impressive as the last couple of times - boo! the service is still good but it feels a bit much that they are just standing there watching you eat and jump at your table...More
