Shimbashi Soba serves up some really fine soba, the quality of the buckwheat is very good, and one who is very selective on taste will know how much more fragrant their buckwheat flour used to make soba is compared to those used to make our store bought soba. In fact, their soba is handmade by a soba master who makes the soba in full view of people who can look into his soba making station through the glass.

They serve two main types of styles of soba, either in hot soup or cold. The soup soba is smoother and the soup itself tastes very good, but I personally prefer the cold soba, as it has a better texture and the noodle is more solid than the soup ones. The soba sauce is perfect for the soba, and the wasabi that accompanies it is not overpoweringly spicy but is actually rather sweet.

For those who order the cold soba, they give you the water used to cook the soba, which you can mix with the remaining sauce after your meal, and it makes a really good hot drink after the cold soba. Their set meals are really value for money, and I find most of their food reasonably priced. I feel that the only flaw they really have is a slowdown in service during certain times of the day.
