Foursquare Tips

  • They make their own soba daily. The soba lunchbox specials are delicious and a great way to try a variety of items. They have the best gomae and Japanese omelets. -Malika Ameen, Top Chef Just Desserts
  • Must try bathroom - Toto washlet with seat warmer!!!
  • finish your broth.
  • Special lunch set: shrimp tempura, soba, ikura rice, salad, salmon, stewed eggplant, lotus root, & yam & a mini milk tofu dessert-all for $17! For $3 xtra, get the Fri special cocktail.
  • Absolutely one of the best udon places I've been to in the city. They make a mean udon tempura! Avoid their tofu block appetizer though- it's a strange toothpastey consistency.
  • Quickly becoming one of my favorites! Traditional Japanese at its finest. Have the Orion beer with dinner if you're not doing sake.
  • Tuna Yuba-Maki & Yasai Soba
  • Tempura is fantastic here. Get the avocado tempura if you want a taste of heaven melting in your mouth!
  • The mushroom tempura is basically the best thing ever. I could order three for dinner and nothing else and die happy.
  • order the mini ikura don for a side dish!
  • Dinner offers more choice, but at lunch, the menu features a number of under $20 lunch sets. - Inspector
  • House made soba noodles. Consistent flavor and quality every time.
  • yasai soba (veg but broth uses dashi) is a fav on a cold day
  • This is THE place for Soba Noodles in NYC. We recommend the Soba Salad or Mori with Zaru. Arrive for their early bird special for $18 and enjoy a feast!
  • Other than soba, try Moriawase (Pick 3 kinds of Vegetable Appetizers) $12. great stuff.
  • Tuna Yuna-Maki!!!!
  • Tempura hot soba has delicious, rich smoky broth.
  • Soba soba soba come for lunch and get a set. It's confusing so I'll just say it here: lunch set only comes w a subset of rice / plain noodles.
  • The Buta-Kakuni (Braised Pork Belly w/ Poached Egg in Broth) is to die for. The Chawan-Mushi (Steamed Egg Custard w/ Vegetable and Chicken) is also tasty. If it's two of you, get a seat at the bar.
  • The best japanesr food I've ever eat!!!! U should try hot soba's!
