Was here Dec 2012 and wanted to return to this soba place this April 2013 but was told of the fire. I hope the business get back to their feet and rebuilt the same old feeling of a great soba culture. I enjoyed the ambience, food and service with the singing ladies. Great soba noodle texture with great side dishes.

My son and I had a wonderful lunch here. It was a short walk from Akihabara. The traditional interior is lovely and the staff were very attentive. The woman who sings the orders to the kitchen is a nice touch.

A local friend set a group of us up to have lunch here, and it was wonderful. The orders are indeed sung out, and the building itself is a beautiful reminder of Japan's not-too-distant past. The soba here was different from others I've had. It was thinner and green, but not unappetizing in appearance. I ordered hot soba with eel... More

Your senses highten as you walk thru the Elegant Japanese Garden, you step back into time as you enter into the long cooridor entrance then into the Japanese Soba House itself. Rustic walls, raised tatami floors and the ancient chanting of orders from the Okami herself. Soba... More
