Sarashina soba noodles, the specialty here, are made only from the refined core of the buckwheat kernel. Noodles here are served with two dipping sauces - sweet and spicy - which you can combine as you wish. The noodles are good, if a bit bland, but the tempura is only average. Side dishes like yakitori and smoked duck are served a la carte, and there's a Y3500 full-course menu with tempura and several other items.
