“The Best independent fusion in town”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

Living in London, indochinese food become part of your life so you try them all. From banana tree to wagamama to independent food-houses, you cannot help but to develop an expertise in the acquired Asian taste.
Well Soba is probably the best independent I have tried for flavour, size and variety. And they deliver at home which made my family develop an addiction that should be looked at by the NHS. Once you try soba, any other take away fades away. Food is amazing ate at their restaurant too. Not the most beautiful place ever but clean and relaxing. My life would not be the same without. Once a week or more, we need a... Soba.

“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

I'm slightly confused as to why there are no reviews. We discovered this restaurant two years ago and have been coming ever since, and for one simple reason- it's consistently excellent. We're both fans of Wagamama, and Soba does serve similar fusion meals- ramen, gyoza, katsu etc, but also offers bento, excellent sushi, "standard" Chinese fare (think sweet and sour, lemon chicken etc), Thai style dishes, and lots more. Portions are generous, service is friendly, attentive but not overbearing, and it's good value, better than Wagamama anyway.

My tips: Try the sushi crunch, it's surprising and in my dining experience, unique. The chili and pepper squid is superb, and the broccoli is simple but very tasty.

We often get the restaurant to ourselves, which may change if people take heed of this review...

Also, they seem to have perfected the art of delivering food safely, but without spoiling it.
