If it was after 6pm on a Wednesday, there were empty seats and I was able to get in right away.

The store also has the atmosphere of a long-established store.
The soba noodles taste delicious.

I ate Tenmori Soba set meal and Goshiki Soba.

The soba noodles are thick and chewy.
The tempura was also crispy and delicious.
With this amount and taste, the cost performance is good.

I was also very satisfied with the soba soup.


It was a soba restaurant that I had wanted to go to for about 5 or 6 years a long time ago!
My wish has finally come true!
Good store layout! When you go up the stairs, you'll see a magnificent sample case in front of you!
Then, I looked around the store and thought, Wow! This is the soba restaurant!
I had lunch with my daughter who loves soba...
I went to the menu to order right away, and there were so many items to choose from, but I chose tempura, zaru soba, kabayaki eel, dashimaki omelet, dango zenzai, and soba ice cream.
It was a very satisfying lunch time.


This is a store I've been to many times for a long time.
There was a store on the south side of Kyoto Station (Kamitoba store) until the end of last year, but unfortunately it closed.
In Kansai, only Mt. Hiei main store and Yamashina are available.

✦Soba: Although it is not 100% soba,
Among soba restaurants, Tsuruki soba is one of the best.
The pleasant aroma of dashi soup wafts through the store.

✦Quality: Good quality. The material.
Tempura is also recommended. It's rising quickly.
By the way, there is a wide variety of dishes such as eel rice bowl and salmon roe bowl,
We recommend the soba-based menu rather than the rice bowl dishes.
✦The daily set meal is around ¥1,300 and has a lot of options, so if you go, definitely check it out.

✦ Inside the store: The nostalgic Showa era atmosphere is also great.
✦Others: Dry noodles that you can eat at home and Yatsuhashi from Kyoto are sold in front of the cash register.
(All at relatively affordable prices)
✦Reservations: I inquired by phone, but it seems like the system does not allow reservations.
I'm going to go straight to the actual situation.
✦Parking lot: There is space for about 10 cars. There is also an elevator.
