“Soba off this world”
Soba off this world. What a find. This friendly charming hidden restaurant deserves to be mentioned, the whole evening there was a great treat. The owner is fluent in English and very helpful once you run out of japanese, great sake selection, and just so welcoming.

“Soba noodle gem”
Excellent soba (buckwheat) noodles Japanese Restaurant. We have just had a delicious meal at this very welcoming Restaurant. The friendly staff speak fluent English and are very happy to help you navigate the menu. Ideal choice if you have a wheat intolerance. Very happy to recommend.

The kind of restaurant I like the most are local restaurants with great, unpretentious, well prepared food and good service - that kind of experience you can easily identify as unique, from the first bite. This is Tansoan - a hidden gem, hard to spot for occidental eyes. The restaurant is located i...n Asakusa, Taito City, and you probably won't find it unless you are looking for it. Ken, the chef, guided us through the "dinner set" dishes, and I had the chance to eat the most tender octopus, the most delicious picled tomato, among other things. The cooking technique is original and amazing but, different from other restaurants, the Chef was there, in person, explaining every dish, interested in the client's experience. Having dinner at Tansoan was like visiting a friend. There is nothing better than this.
