Lovely place I had the pleasure of discovering! The staff were very nice, welcoming and helpful, even though we don't speak Japanese at all.

There was a line when we got there but we waited maybe 5 minutes. The service is pretty fast but you don't feel rushed. The decor is really nice. It was giving zen vibes.

They do have an English menu (with pictures too and explanations for certain words, which helped a lot) They even explain the history of the restaurant. The food was really good. I knocked a star off because the portions are pretty small. But it was tasty and I enjoyed it. Very refreshing.

Overall had a good experience and I really appreciated the staff! Would recommend if you're in the area :)


The building is charming, and the decor in the spacious hall with numerous tables has a clean and serene ambiance. They offer a variety of soba and udon dishes. The staff is friendly and efficient, making you feel welcome. While in the restaurant, you don't feel like you're in the middle of Tokyo.


Tonight we had a visitor from Canada, we brought her to this soba ya close to her hotel. It was a really nice soba ya, we ordered their duck soba warm and cold soba, regulars sero soba and some dishes like the shashimi yuba, soba sushi and four seasons tempura. Certainly one of the best soba restaurant my wife and I had visited so far in Tokyo.
