“Real deal soba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

You've got to have the soba noodles here. They are perfect with a wonderful dashi flavored broth. Nice selection of sakes. Very friendly service. Don't miss the pickled vegetable appetizer! Chicken yakitori was fine but nothing special.

“Poor quality for high price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

I had dinner there in August. I dodn't want to have a big meal, I still had to "recover" from a soul food meal at lunch. So I decided to have just a seaweed salad (that was ok) a small don with sashimi (it was rather small and rice was warm) and edame. i ordered a coke and it was warm...price was high, service was a bit annoying and the undeserved gratuity (for 1 person) was included in the bill. No, I did not like it.

“What's more important to you...food or value?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2010

They make their own noodles and tofu. I tried them both and they were very fresh. The sushi was average. I would recommend staying with the udon and soba.

Overall this restaurant had good food but their are better choices out there I'm sure.
