This place is big and many seats available.
The deep fried tofu and egg plant in hot broth was nice. The broth taste good. Deep fried tofu is soft and nice.
Miso-marinated Tofu with baguette was something new to me. It tatse like butter and nice. Only thing is the baguette is hard.
Rice bowl set with large shrimp tempura and small soba noodles. The shrimp tempura was big and crispy. Small soba noodles rhe broth is nice.
Hot soba with assorted tempura plus shrimp tempura and hot soba with kakiage tempura. The kakiage tempura got shrimp, pumpkin, mushroom and lotus root. This kakiage tempura is the best I have ever eaten. It taste nice and not oily.
Kamo in hot dipping sauce with soba noodles. Kamu got sauteed duck and white leak. The duck texture was soft and taste good.
There is a complimentary where they serve a small taiyaki inside got red beans. The taiyaki was made from the flour they made the soba noodles.


“The best soba and tempura i have had”

Soba noodle was soft and the soup was tasty! It could be chosen to be hot or cold, but for me i think hot is better. I impressed with a large size of shrimp tempura and oyster confit (a must try!). The side dishes such as three kinds of tofu and boiled mixed vegetables were also worth trying!

I think the restaurant’s menu was quite confusing maybe because of the translation of google, lol. However, the staffs were very helpful and friendly. 👍


One of the best lunch I had on this trip. Their food is excellent. Kakiage is fried so well that you don't see oil at all. The soba is very fresh and the duck soba is so good where rhe duck meat aromatic and tender.

The staff is very attentive too and the ambience of this restaurant is cosy

Highly recommended.
