“Supposed to be famous for soba”
At the recommendation of my Japanese friend, decided to give the place a try. Ordered the Seiro-Soba and Tendane. The place is supposed to be well-known for soba but personally think it has what it takes. The Ebi tempura is what I would go for - light fluffy crispy texture on the outside while jui...cy and soft on the inside. Service is very good. Overall pricey restaurant and would warrant a visit if you are a lover of soba and don't mind travelling to search for it.

Definitely worth a visit. It’s about 850yen for basic meal and excellent service. The soba is really top quality

“You really have to want soba”
A bit of an effort is needed to find this place, hidden in a side street and once you get there, unless you have come early before opening time there will be a wait. this is one of those places that locals have long known about and tourists have discovered. all for soba noodles in a place which i ...suppose evokes what traditional japan is supposed to be like, i.e., lots of atmosphere with women in traditional outfits calling out greetings and the senior matron announcing customer orders in stylized song. (a major fire destroyed much of the original structure a few years back and the current building is a recreation.) the soba comes and it is delicious but given the hurried service and the long lines waiting, service is rushed and you're not supposed to linger. you get the bill and it's twice as much as what lesser shops charge. worth it? maybe once.

“Ambience and great soba!”
A short walk from our accommodation in Akihabara, we stumbled across Kanda Yabusoba, and are so glad we did! Great food, great sake and the restuarant has a wonderful ambience. We were lucky enough to have no wait in line, and a tatami was available. Waitresses spoke some English and an English... menu was available.

“As good as soba gets”
This is arguably the best soba place in Tokyo. As the name implies, located in Kanda, walkable from Akihabara, or Jimbocho. If you prefer to go by subway, Kanda Yabusoba is a 2-4 minute walk fromexit A3 of Ogawamachi Station on the Toei Shinjuku line, and Awajicho Station on the Tokyo Metro Marunouc...hi line. The restaurants is well-known, and quite popular so go outside of peak hours to avoid a long wait. Reservations recommended. Closed Wednesday. The highlight of the show is of course soba. I have always had a weakness for tempura soba. However, most soba dishes here are tasty.
