Great taste and aesthetic- just missing one star because the food was poorly timed. I will be back for sure


Loving the interior design and the food itself....


Even when it was warm, you could feel the strong soba flavor.
Of course the dashi is also the best❗️
There was a bit of a line around 12:00, but since I came alone due to seating restrictions, I was given priority guidance.
There is a noodle-making place in the back of the store, and I can imagine it being demonstrated, but it was a restaurant that I thoroughly enjoyed.
The proprietress also provided attentive service, making it a restaurant where you could feel at ease even when you were alone.
For everything ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
