Went during vacation - was very surprised - the meal was fantastic and the soup/meal was enough for two people.

My favourite dish by far is goma dare soba. Gomadare is a sesame seed based sauce. You dip the cold soba noodles in this cold sauce and the taste is amazing. Definitely order the omori ( larger serving) size.

Really enjoyed the tempura zaru soba noodles. The consistency of the noodles were perfect and wished I had more time to order another. Now I am now back home in California and really wish there was a restaurant like this here.

This was the best soba I've ever had. We saw reviews on Yelp and decided to try this place on our first night in Waikiki. We certainly weren't disappointed; the food was fantastic! The restaurant is tucked away on a side street in Waikiki and...More

Great authentic soba and you don't have to travel to Japan. Have eaten there on several occasions for business lunch. If you're not sure, suggest you try their daily set menu with homemade soba. For Westerners the set menu course is not only a great...More
