The soba restaurant is very unique by its outside and interior. The quality of soba is very good. The prices are not so cheap but its amount is enough. The problem is that there is a long queue to the entrance in lunch time.

went to check out this local soba place. arrived at 6pm and there was a slight queue. the inside of the restaurant is dark and is only standing - understand why other reviewers call it a "ninja style restaurant" anyway there is no English menu so it was difficult, especially with their only menu being at the counter when you...

I went there for dinner after having a meeting in Kyobashi. The shop was difficult to notice because there was signboard nor indication. For those who wanna try their soba, you should look for a gray, windowless shop with a medium blue volvo advertisement on it top. Besides, you will find people lining up outside the shop at a particular... More

We saw a line outside a small eating establishment. The line was out the door and around the corner. It moved quickly though, so we also took our place in line and in a few minutes entered Minatoya, an establishment specializing in soba noodles. This place was a model of Japanese efficiency! A small (but elegantly understated) room consisted of... More

I went to with my friend for dinner. There is no sign outside of the restaurant, as others said, it seems like "Ninja" style, so it hard to find but worth to go. You just go to a counter and order soba you like, pay in advance, then you wait a few minute and receive it. very simple system. My... More

I went here together with a friend who used to work nearby. Not easy to find as the place isn't advertised on the road and in a fairly dead area around Toranomon and Atago. Easiest to spot at lunchtime when there's a long queue in front. The owners make the soba themselves - and their variety is very chewy. I... More

This place is not located in a tourist hot spot so you will only find the locals and mainly worker from around the area dinning at this extremely ambiguous, hidden, almost “ninja” style like restaurant. I say “ninja” because the whole entire shop front is painted black with a long narrow window bisecting the front wall (truly mysterious). What also... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
