ive been here a bunch of times and ive always left happy. its inexpensive (soba/udon dishes range form $8-$13) and very filling. the soba noodles are fresh, and if youre lucky, you can come to see the chef make it from scratch. soba comes either hot or cold (i prefer cold) and with your choice of tempura, a variety of dipping sauces, or raw fish. they have daily soba and udon specials as well. appetizers (especially the soba sushi) are interesting and varied. afterwards, they serve you hot soba broth (its basically the water used to cook the soba supposedly, its nutritious) to finish your meal. the rice dishes, notably, the unagi-don (eel on rice) are also very good. service is attentive for a busy restaurant. desserts are mild and light. try a few of their unique ice cream flavours such as honey wasabi, yuzu (citrus), or black sesame.
Pros: inexpensive, fresh noodles, good service
Cons: long wait, no reservations
