“If you are non-Japanese and want to try a local Japanese food, then this is it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

If you are non-Japanese and want to try a local Japanese food, then this is it. This does not mean that the food served here is for foreigner. No. Most of the clients are Japanese. This place serves high standard Japanese food and soba (Japanese hot & cold noodles) which would compliment some of wine or Japanese sake. Try their draft beer which is special. The owner, Mr Kobari, speaks excellent English as he used to run Honmra-an in New York. Be sure to visit in the evening as it has more ambience. You can go during the lunch time if you want just a bowl of noodle.

“Nice to see my old friend and enjoy the soba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

I was a regular of Honmura An for many years when it was in NYC. This January, I had the chance to spend a few days in Tokyo and decided to find it. I am so glad I went. It was so nice to see the owner, Koichi san. He was as warm and gracious as before, and quickly offered me a seat. Cold sake was served and I had the set menu. Everything was incredible. The flavor, texture, presentation, and so on sent me to food nirvana.

As a bonus, Koichi san speaks flawless English, so if you feel intimidated because of lack of Japanese language skill, he will put you at ease immediately.
