Order/注文: Itsutsu set / 五セット
Price/値段: 3200 yen / 円

Worth it for its price. The set consists of 3 rounds of dishes:
1st round: (clockwise from the top) saba sushi, potato salad, tofu, fried tofu with okra with sesame and sesame sauce, roast duck with sweet sauce.
2nd round: soba noodles. And, they had soba soup (4th photo) which was delicious and it was unlimited refills!
3rd round: dessert with different types of nuts called seven treasure (shippou, 七宝). As you eat, you can taste many different flavours at once, like a flavour explosion 💥.

The menu changes each time. It was a wonderful experience and I may come back to try a different menu someday. I would recommend anybody to try this restaurant.


Superior soba restaurant with sublime atmosphere and exquisite service. We had the set menu which included appetizer bites and then cold soba, warm soba soup and sweets after. All perfection. Highlights of the appetizer were the sushi and beef. Soba noodles had tooth and texture and I will be dreaming about the soup for days. Do not skip this spot.


We loved the meal special and the mushroom hot soba.
Service was great!
