We went to Sobaten and was expecting the best noodles. The noodles were hard and bland.

We also tried a fried pork chop don and the pork chop was soggy and gross. The rice was mushy as though they took it out of the microwave. There is no way fried pork chop should be soggy. It was definatly precooked and heated to order.

Just an average place with yuckie food...

While not bad, an all-you-can-eat buffet doesn't really suite Japanese fare, like the sushi.

It's really slow and quiet in the evening, or at least it was when we were there. There were two couples in the restaurant when we showed up. The service is friendly and attentive, but the food could be better. I am not saying that the food was bad, but it wasn't anything special that I would want to have again necessarily.

They make their own NOODLES. Great story printed on the menu too.
