Tsukiji Bunkajin Reviews

Tsukiji Bunkajin Google Average Rating



Had the soba mixed with egg - a store speciality only found at Tsukiji Bunkajin - which was a true treat. Combination of egg and soba is genius, making each mouthful of soba light and almost fluffy. Finishing off the soba sauce with hot water was made even more delicious because of the egg. All for ¥990. Fantastic cost performance!


Delicious soba restaurant, excellent appetizers, friendly service. Menu in Japanese only, but the servers are very friendly and you can follow their suggestions blindly.


Delicious noodle and katsuo based soup
