Excellent Japanese restaurant. A limited but fab menu. Makes sure you have the miso soup - no idea how they make such a simple soup so delicious. It is tiny and therefore expect to queue but it is worth the wait.

I have been to Edamame many times and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing and sitting on tables with strangers is fun. The best lunch stop in Oxford.

Been meaning to come here for years! Finally made in on my 49th birthday! Friendly and very efficient service. Great intimate atmosphere. Food tasted fantastic, just like I would make at home - best Asian cuisine I have had in the UK. Great flavour full sauces which came with our beef and salmon. Perfectly cooked and good portion sizes. Food... More

Love this little small shop so much! They served good quality of Japanese food. 'You pay for what you get!'. Love their Salmon Teri so much! It is definitely worth a try if you are in Oxford! =)

We decided to take a chance on getting into Edamame on a Saturday night. This place is a bit of a closely guarded secret in Oxford, and it's well known for being very good and also very very busy. We got there just before it opened at 5, and waited around 10 mins with a couple of other people so... More

I really wanted to experience Japanese food which I hadn't eating since I was very young. A couple of days prior to this we went to a Japanese restaurant on Cowley Road which in truth was disappointing. However we (my family and I) and went to Edamame. We were slightly hesitant as the reviews said you cannot book and it... More

Small place, crowded most of the time, better be early. Limited menu, but good decent homemade Japanese food.

I really love popping in here for dinner. I love the seaweed salad and the burdock root. The menu is delicious and unusual. The only thing is that it has odd opening hours, so you should check the website before you go to avoid disappointment.
