    One of my favorite LES neighborhood spots. Homestyle Japanese cooking with a mostly soy based menu. GET: Gyoza, Potato & Beef Croquette, Ginger Pork, Beef and Potato Niku Jaga

    The rice is amazing. The food tastes so hearty and healthy. Place to go homemade, non-sushi Japanese cuisine.

    This place is delicious. The spicy tuna avocado bowl is where it's at.

    Spicy tuna and avocado bowl is the move. You can skip the $0.75 tempura flakes. Not worth the money. Overall, cozy place with healthy food.

    The beef curry is really tasty- more like a slightly spicy stew than curry.

    Everything is delicious, though the place is small and had limited work hours. Come and try the different types of tofu and miso soups.

    Great Japanese home cooking. Not at all gourmet, but nice comfort food

    Paul Wagner · August 15, 2014

    It is my quick, cheap meal for no frills japanese home cooking. Try the Ginger soy pork, curry rice and tofu pudding.

    My favorite spot for homemade japanese cuisine. It's unpretentious, adorable, good, and cheap.

    Soy is a cute Japanese spot tucked away in the LES. I enjoyed the spicy tuna & avocado rice bowl, as well as the sesame tofu pudding. Portions on the small side, yet satisfying. Next up: the Niku Jaga

    Japanese home cooking. You won't find sushi here, but their beef curry will fill your stomach and warm your heart (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Happiness is diving into a bowl of green tea tofu pudding...after eating meat gyozas and curry rice. Yum. Ask about Etsuko's cooking classes - I took the dessert class and it was so much fun.

  • Charles A.

    The Ramen is my go-to dish. So great. So simple.

    Edamame & cheese sprig roll + flaked salmon and collared green rice - yummy home made cooking!

    The homemade style beef and potatoe is very authentic and tasty. It's a home-y, hole in the wall. I patron this little place twice a year when I visit NYC.
