Handmade Soba Tansoan Kenjiro Reviews

Handmade Soba Tansoan Kenjiro Google Average Rating



We had a lovely evening at this soba restaurant to celebrate our last night in Japan. Soba noodles with duck and tempura were both delicious. Even the kids enjoyed the food. The restaurant was very comfortable with low seats in booths but not sitting on the floor. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and made a big effort to explain what all the dishes were to us in English. The special sake was also very nice.


The place is very small, so if you want to eat here for lunch, you must arrive well before midday - others will have booked.
The atmosphere is great, but the soba noodles are not so spectacular that I would feel the need to return.


Coincidence found out this restaurant. It’s a local soba restaurant. Very delicious and service was really good. Even the owner cannot speak English but they also have English menu. Recommend for those who want to try tempura with Soba
