Great soba noodles at the end of Pontocho St (just after the Geisha theatre) Really filling, tasty and the tempura was not oily! Vegetarian friendly.

Serving home made soba noodles made with made-in-Japan ingredients since 1929. Dashi, or the soup, is "elegantly sweeter" (Kyoto or Kansai style) compared to those in the Tokyo area. Good location and refined (not the efficient fast-food type) service. Apparently a popular place among the...More
This is the second time we have eaten here and have really enjoyed the food both times. The set meals are lovely - great soba and udon noodles. If you don't react well to MSG don't add the 'salt'!

Good chicken and leek soba. Happy staff if somewhat lacking in English. The building is old and plain. As the restaurant specialises in soba there wasn't anything else on the menu - double check with your dining companions if they are ok with this!
The soba had certain texture. Source had the right light sweetness. The small dishes including the tofu and octopus fish cake were nice too. Chicken skew was average. Overall, if around, it's good to try.
We enjoyed this restaurant, located in e B2 level of the very niceHotel Okura. Don't expect a view! The soba was excellent, good tempura, a very nice set of various things. I went back for lunch one day and had soba with grated mountain yam...More
