The best ever Soba restaurant where I went to ! :D Everything is homemade, from the soba to the tempura and fried vegetables. You can either order a cold soba with tempura+vegetables or hot soba with tempura+vegetables. Their drinks menu is really good, they have a lot of choice. Nana-san and her mom hold this restaurant and you can feel their love for cooking in your plate. The place is located 5min from Nara Shinkansen station in a quiet neighbourhood and has a zen kind of ambiance. What's more, Nana-san speaks English and a bit of French ! Just go there guys if you want to eat homemade soba and tempura !


An extremely friendly soba place, great food at affordable price. 3 layers Soba was smooth and sauces were perfect.


Walked here from Nara Park, was a long walk but totally worth it. The owner and daughter are so humble and excited for their guest. The noodles are traditionally handmade served both hot or cold and the tempura veggies/shrimp are delicious!! We were served hot tea that we drank through pretty fast cause of the amazing taste. Would recommend and I definitely plan to come back whenever I'm in the Nara area.


We found this on Google and walked 10 minutes from our hotel near the Nara train station. They grind their own flour and make the soba noodles fresh daily, it's well worth the wait. The menu was in Japanese but a local who spoke English helped us decide what to order (they are printing an English menu). The man who helped us described this restaurant as his pride. We went with a warm Duck soba, it was amazing. At home, in Calgary, we eat Pho regularly but this place is superior in every way. The decor is relaxing, seating comfortable, with a quiet atmosphere and friendly staff. We've felt as though eating here was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as we don't know when we'll be back in Japan or Nara. We are very lucky to have had this experience.


I’ve tried many ***/**/* + gastro-restaurants around the world… believe me, many!! This restaurant owned by Chef Nana, its a little even on heart.

It deserve a visits from a Michelin or 50best inspector… as very few times these days the summons of ingredients where so perfectly blended in such super humble relaxing atmosphere. Its a must go to. A Very rare find!!

Bravissima Chef Nana.
