Small place within busy area, but it is a quiet haven from all the busy outside. Very friendly staff, they strongly try to help you with anything you need. But be aware they have limited English knowledge. Excellent food, soba noodles, tempura and udon soup...More

We had the noodles with the duck. Half of it was fat, the rest hard like leather. Ten dollars for a small bowl of noodles with bad duck. I wouldn't recommend it. Good service though.

Not a bad meal but I went for a hotpot style dish and most of the contents were over cooked. On the up side it's a pleasant environment amongst a hectic street.

It is a quiet island on the crowded street Doronbori. Outside it doesn't attract attention, so it is not easy to spot. We tried Nabeyaki-udon soup with noodles and Ten-don Domburri. The soups were all delicious.
