We tried the Soba menu with Tempura: it was just delicious!! We had lots of Soba in Japan, but these ones were very very good. Price is ok (menu around 1'800 Soba + Tempura). Very warm atmosphere.

We had the Omen udon and it was delicious! We're going back tonight to try the sushi. The interior of the restaurant and the service are inviting, comfortable and relaxed.

The place is at the end of Philosophy road, near Silver Pavillon (a must see!) in the north east part of the town. I had lunch in this simple, typical minimalist japanese style, cozy restaurant. The menu is not very long but all food is...More
