Excellent experience in this friendly service eating a delicious SokiSoba, the pork meat was falling off the bones, (I’m sure you heard that before) but, it was so tender that you can eat the cartilage bones too, no problems. I’ll come back one day if...I can.More

Whether you want to try Okinawa soba, yakisoba, or chapuru (Okinawan stir fry), this is the best spot on the island to try the local cuisine. In the summer they offer goya champuru and it's by far the most tasty version around. Service is great...too!More

The best soba in the island! We ordered their Okinawan soba (with pork spare ribs) and seafood soba and were simply blown away! The noodles were soft and chewy and the broth was refreshingly delicious.

Hanaorisoba, known among Americans living in Okinawa as 'The Purple Flag' restaurant according to the color of the flag in front of the place, is one of the best local places we have been to. The food is delicious, the staff is very friendly and...attentive and the price is right. It's famous for an Okinawan soba but we also love other menus, like ginger pork (the attached picture), chicken/pork cutlet and teriyaki chicken. It used to serve lunch and dinner but sadly it is now closed at 5 PM.More

Just awesome and so well worth taking the time to find and enjoy with large portions of Soba. So if you are in Okinawa and enjoy Soba, please make the effort to visit this place.

Best place to get soba. Huge portions. Sometimes it is hard to get a seat because it is very popular and very good.

Tebichi soba is the dish to have should you visit Okinawa. I chose to have it at Hanaorisoba thanks to the reviews here. If you're staying in Naha and did not rent a car, you can get here on bus #28 from Naha Bus Terminal....Be advised, though, the trip will take two hours. After getting off at Ufudo (大当), double back about a block and a half and cross the street to Hanaorisoba. I was seated and ordered immediately. The picture menu is bilingual and the prices are nice. The wait for food isn't long either. The bowl was bigger than I anticipated. Plus, this was the very first time ever that I ate pig's feet. Incredibly tender, the meat fell off the bones as soon as I picked the feet up. I gladly sucked the marrow out of the bones and made sure to clean the bones off of any meat and collagen. The noodles themselves were nice and chewy. The soup was hot and restoring, especially after such a long bus trip up. This place is a must when in Okinawa. Would definitely go again to try the rest of the menu!More

Great restaurant for family. Fast and lots of food. Cheap price too! Interior was old and a bit dirty, but normal for this type of shokudo. Looked like about 7 or 8 tables downstairs and more tables upstairs. Lots on parking on road in front....Definately good food, but old building. Recommended!More

I've been there with my friends on a travel last summer. The place is very easy to find, basically on the main road in front of the sea. The inner design is very simple and the place is mostly crowded, better for a dinner with...friends than for couples I think. Food is really good, portions are generous and prices are low, definitely worth a try. Menu is also in English and there is some personnel who speaks English, which is not quite common in Okinawa and very useful for Europeans such as myself. The inner design, the noise and the density of tables deserve a 3/5, but the food and the English bonus deserve a 5/5. We enjoyed it very much, definitely worth a try!More

My husband LOVES and I mean loves the seafood ramen! Huge pieces of different types of fresh fish in your ramen. The servings are HUGE! Americans will think it is one serving but I tell my husband all the time his bowl of ramen will...serve 2-3 people. I think their katsu is one of the best on island! I also love the eggplant dish YUM!More

Large portions, excellent food, and very inexpensive, actually. We shared an appetizer and each ordered a main dish and we were so full, and the meal cost the equivalent of about $20 including our soft drinks. We don't speak Japanese so it was difficult to...communicate (our bad for not speaking the language). But the food was great, and the people were so nice and friendly. You have to check this place out. Look for the purple flags over the door.More

I've eaten Okinawan soba for years, always searching for that elusive perfect bowl of noodles, ribs, and broth. I finally found it at Hanaorisoba in Yomitan. I heard so many good things about this place I had to try it for the first time in...July 2014. I was so excited, but I figured the soba would just be ordinary. It was not ordinary, it was perfection in a bowl. The broth was so tasty, and the ribs were so tender and succulent. The service was outstanding also. It's a small restaurant, parking is very limited. My recommendation is to go early for lunch on a weekday before the crowd. Park along the street, or in the parking lot next to the restaurant. If you have difficulty finding it ask a local. It is definitely worth the trip.More

Very nice place to come in and have a quick sit down dinner or lunch, food is short order cook style. Every one was very friendly and the atmosphere was happy-food is plenty full and not at all expensive for the amount.
