“Fantastic food!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

One of my best dinners in Tokyo. I had a soba with tempura set and a seasonal side dish, grated mountain yam with salmon roe and sea urchin, with the final bill adding up to 3000 yen.

Service is good, and English speakers will not encounter any problems at this classy restaurant. The place is a bit hidden, sited on the second floor, opposite a carpark, in a lane off the main street. Hope this helps!

“Good food and fabulous service”
Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We had the seasonal tasting menu, of which all courses were very tasty. The staff were extremely attentive and there were obviously quite a few faithful regulars which is always a good sign. I'd say average value for money for Tokyo and definitely worth a try

“Great Spot for Soba”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We have been to Honmura An 5 or 6 times now. Living nearby it is a great spot to head to for some great Soba in a nice environment with great service. The Cold Soba with Sesame Dipping Sauce as well as the Hot Soba with Duck are two highlights that we commonly have. The signature chicken meat balls are pretty nice to for a starter. We have had the tasting menu a couple of times as well and enjoyed it, however it was a lot of food.
Its not a cheap place, but I think value for money wise its one of the best spots to get a Soba experience in.
Well worth the trip, and worth going back to.

“Awesome Seasonal Tasting Menu”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Tokyo. The seasonal tasting menu is great, offering seven very different courses that allow you to get a sampling of Japanese cuisine. The soba noodles are consistently good (ask for the sesame dipping sauce) and the octopus sashimi was probably the best I have ever had (soft, lots of flavor, not chewy). I would never consider myself a foodie, but would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Tokyo.

“wonderful food, wonderful service”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I was very sorry when Honmura An closed in New York five years ago or so, and delighted when I realized that the proprietor had moved back to Tokyo to take over his father's restaurant. I had dinner there twice in the fall (forgot to review at the time), and both meals were exquisite. I had the set menu, and everything was delicious, and the owner and his staff very charming. A real gem.
