Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I think this shop was moved here recently from around the corner - the queue was pretty long during lunch so we came back for dinner. Ordered the cold soba and also soupy soba with egg and chicken. All were very good and price reasonably....Service was friendly- highly recommended!More

Visited this wonderful restaurant on my way to Hakone. The soba was magnificent and very reasonably priced, the tempura was also delicious ! Words can't describe what a delightful experience this was. Recommended to anyone making a trip to Hakone.

If you pass by the Yumoto station on your way to Hakone, then you must stop by that amazing restaurant and give a try to their incredibly tasty soba! The soba noodles are prepared in the pure traditional style, using fine ingredients and clean mountain...water. The broth is delicate and flavorful and the interior absolutely charming. This is a must try for an unforgettable experience!More

A charming quick eat spot with other diners slurping their noodles around you in authentic setting - menu choice of hot & cold soba dishes served rapidly. Put your name down on the door for your reservation - you can always try the sister restaurant...only 5min walk away if too busyMore

It was a hot and sweaty day in hakone when we went to visit and this place was a blessed relief. The wife is gluten free so she was ecstatic to find them serving proper soba noodles (I. E buckwheat) and the food did not...disappoint. The dishes were simple and quick and came in a lovely broth. You have to queue sometimes but they are quickMore

It’s on the way from town to our hotel... saw a long queue the previous night. Next day, decided to have early lunch there. Place was not big... sits maybe less than 20, but cozy and comfortable. Soba was exquisite... beautiful texture, and sauce not...too overpowering. Reasonably priced for the quality. Service was prompt and polite. I’d think of this place every time I had cravings for soba!More

Omg, this soba restaurant is so good! We were drawn to it by the crowd that was waiting. We went at an off hour around 3pm and we waited only about 5min! It’s super tiny so I understand why there is usually a wait. We...ordered the cold soba with Tempura combo and the katsu-don style soba. Highly recommend the combo! The service is amazing and location was close to our Ryokan! Not good for large groups. We had a group of 4, any higher you’ll probably wait a while. Highly recommend!!!More

Ate soba with shrimp tempura at this little gem in Hakone. We waited 30 minutes for a shared table but it was worth the wait. Noodles were delicious as was the shrimp.

We tried their specialty, grated yam soba. It’s really food for the adventurous. We won’t try it again :p Their curry soba wasn’t nice so I don’t recommend it. The rest of soba dishes were delicious. The cold soba with tempura was the best. There...was a queue but it was managed very well and moved very fast.More

Not bad. Went there later one night. My partner had the yam egg cold soba and I had the curry pork soba. My partner’s was a little strange but decent (probably won’t order again) and mine was quite tasty.

By far the best soba I've ever eaten! Staff were friendly and attentive, although with limited English which was fine by us. Highly recommend this place if you want to try authentic soba.

Very good food I would definitely recommend a visit here. We put our name down but we're seated within 5 minutes. The staff were were friendly and spoke just enough English to get by. We sat up stairs at a shared table. But there was...floor seating as well. If you can sit down stairs it looked a bit nicer near the river. If you order the prawn tempura I would advise the one not in the broth as the batter gets soggy (obviously). I had the egg and chicken and it was delisious.More

We wandered around to take photo after register the name with waitress as there is a long queue when we reached the place, but the waiting time is just about 20mins. After our name is called, we been arranged to sit with two different groups...of Japanese client. Shop is cozy and every table is shared, unless you get the bar seat. The waitress was unfriendly to tourist, but it doesn't bother us. We ordered one Tempura Soba and one Cold Soba. The Tempura Soba wasn't that good, there is better one in other places. This also my first time to try Cold Soba with fermented potato and raw egg. The soba look nice when it first served to us, then we mixed up all the ingredient as per the Japanese guest advised who seat next to us. When I put into mouth, I felt like the smelly bubble is dancing inside my mouth. It taste awful, maybe it was not my cup of tea, I cant even finished and feel like wanna spit it out. We expect more for this hundred years shop, but I'm afraid this will be my first time and last time visit the restaurant.More

I don't recommend any English speaking tourist come to this restaurant. The hostess asked us to leave even though we waited 30 minute for a table after signing in. She then sat several other Japanese patrons when we came back to ask why we were...asked to leave. While most of Japan are very welcoming and accommodating, this establishment is the exception. Save yourself the confusion and insult and eat elsewhere.More
