Refreshing as can be.
J and I came here for an early dinner. Luckily, we were only the second pair of people there. Before you enter the restaurant, take a moment to look at the chef on the right window. The chef is making fresh soba noodles on the spot. J and I sat right by the window - the only window seat there is. The restaurant is quite small with friendly staffs.

The food was surprisingly good.
The drinks could have been better.
Overall experience was great.

Octopus Carpaccio
Grilled Sea Bass
Kamonasu Soba
Snago Tempura Soba
Soba Flavored Ice Cream
It was a very satisfying meal. They give a generous amount of soba here and if you think that wouldn't fill you up, think again. I was quite amazed by the dessert, it sounded weird but tasted otherwise. There was a little crunch to it, I'm assuming it was the buckwheat seeds (probably should've asked the waitress).

Sobakoh is definitely a nice soba spot to return. By the way, don't forget to stare at the man making the soba when you leave...
