Shimbashi Soba operates under the RE & S Enterprises brand, and offers hand-made soba noodles made fresh daily. Soba noodles are made with buckwheat flour, and can be served in a soup, or separate on a Zaru bamboo tray. While usually consumed with a chilled dipping sauce, Soba noodles can also be consumed with a warm dipping sauce, with a chilled soup, or with a warm soup. 

Shimbashi Soba mills their own buckwheat flour using a stone mill, and a trained Soba noodle chef prepares the noodles. The difference in hand-made Soba noodles is apparent in both texture and taste, with a more springy and bouncy texture, and a fragrant aroma. 

Shimbashi Soba makes good use of decor, and ambience is akin to a traditional Japanese bath house or cottage, with wooden panelling and bamboo designs. Tables are well spaced, and conversations won't carry over to your neighbours. 

Service at Shimbashi Soba is unobtrusive and quietly efficient... you'll hardly know they're there. This has partially to do with the decor, which somewhat obstructs line of sight. However, staff are quite alert, and will offer to refill tea when you're running out. 

Besides hand-made Soba noodles, Shimbashi Soba also has a specially imported soy dipping sauce. Overall, I feel Shimbashi Soba is a good choice if you have a craving for Soba noodles!
