    Amazing place with great soba noodles, service, and experience overall. The restaurant is located in a typical Japanese townhouse and is well worthwhile the trip!

    Extremely atmospheric place to enjoy a bowl of soba (buckwheat noodles). The restaurant is extremely popular with locals, so arrive early or be prepared to wait.

    A noodle shop that's been operating for 500 years, they've worked out most kinks. The soba noodles are great & the predominant recommendation. Visually, the place is surprisingly larger than expected.

    Felt authentic, very unique to have dined at a 16th generation family owned and operated restaurant. Noodles were great too!

    The five levels of soba are the key if you're hungry! Very traditional. One of the most authentic experiences I have had so far.

    Historic spot to check out. I was not satisfied with my order because it was cold and slimy but my bf's dish was really good (specialty soba dish). The bun and crackers are tasty. Food takes a while.

    Very lovely and authentic place. Try the Hourai Soba, it’s the specialty and a traditional Japanese culinary experience.

    Get the hourai soba with 5 levels of soba or the Kyo yasai seiro with speciality Kyoto vegetables. Highly recommended.

    Amazing soba! Ask for the English menu. Don't forget to mix the noodle water and drink at the end.

    A must-visit in Kyoto, and with good reason. Get the soba, of course, but everything is delicious.
  • Lisa S.
    I love thw townhouse. However, since we had soba in another traditional noodle maker place - I thought these ones were ok. I definitely had better tempura in other places.

    Amazing soba noodles. Get the Hourai Soba, which has 5 stacks of soba noodles paired with 8 toppings. Simply fantastic!

    The soba is amazing - it would be difficult to remain in business for more than 5 centuries if it wasn't!

    Get the tempura and cold soba set. Little cakes and biscuits after the meal are tasty!

    Loved the soba here but the udon was overcooked and lacked the proper chewiness. Soba is amazing though

    Claimed to be operated for 500+ years. The soba is good but not like a Wow. I can still find similar quality elsewhere. Queuing needed.

    I didn't like it, the food didn't taste anything, the service was really slow, they accept credit and debit cards. My gf did like the food...

    The sobas are quite good and the staff is nice. Ask them to go upstairs in the back, you'll get the barefoot experience :)

    교토 시영 지하철 카라스마 오이케 역 1번 출구로 나와 첫번째 골목에서 조금만 올라오면 좌측에 가게가 보인다. 식전에 디저트로 고소한 비스킷인 소바가시, 고운 팥앙금이 든 소바모찌를 준다.
