One of the best meals I have ever had in Japan, everything I ordered was simply delicious. Service was top notch, they have an English menu.
The salt water boiled green beans were surprisingly tasty; the fried mushroom and eggplant was heavenly. Of course the soba is the best, accompanied by lightly fried vegetable and shrimp tempura, what more can you ask for!
Was totally worth the wait of about 20 minutes.


Great place for soba and local fish from the market. Nice quality/price and impeccable service. Waiters are always paying attention to your needs. Beef could have been better but we were delighted with the salad and soba with duck. I totally recommend it!


Delicious soba hidden on a quiet street!

The walnut dipping soba with crisp tempura seido were succulent. The cold soba dipped in the walnut sauce is so refreshing on a hot day. The walnut flavour wasn’t too overwhelming so you don’t get tired of it quickly. I definitely recommend you to take some tempura which added some light crisps into the meal.

For dessert, i recommend their cream anmitsu which was delicious. It’s a mix between ice cream (vanilla or matcha) with red bean, marron paste, tangerine and Japanese agar jelly.

The atmosphere was calm, they had an English menu and their staff could also communicate with us easily.
