About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - Soba Nippon is located on Fifth Avenue in the center of Manhattan, right by Rockefeller Center, the Theater District, and many shopping destinations. We serve homemade Soba (buckwheat noodles) and Tofu using buckwheat and soybean harvested on our very own farm in Canada. We were the first restaurant to serve the real Teuchi (hand-made) soba in New York City and we created the original Soba Salad, which has now become one of the most popular Japanese dishes in the world. There are many health advantages in eating Soba, since it is low in calories and rich in nutrients. A single serving of Soba contains only 132 calories and offers lots of protein, vitamins B1, B2, E, and leuthin. In addition to Soba we serve many varieties of Kobachi (Japanese tapas) accompanied with our excellent selection of sake and wine. Soba Nippon was featured in the Emmy Nominated television series, Sex in the City, and has been highly praised by Eric Asimov of the New York Time

Enjoyed the salad, salmon teriyaki and miso soup. Hot soba wasn't as good as expected, according to reviews. I had the one with fried tofu - I suggest trying something else.

It was a very nice lunch but a bit expensive. I loved the look of the bamboo. The food was very good and it was a good location.

Go-to restaurant in the 50's for business lunch--traditional noodle shop but with excellent service. Full sushi menu as well but prefer the noodles/soups.

When we arrived we were told that sushi was no longer available at dinner, only for lunch. The main reason that we chose this restaurant was that it was sushi close to RCMH. This was not stated anywhere on their website. When we looked at the menus (all three), we noticed that they were shorter and different the one online.

Two of three items I ordered, were not available: uni and toro tuna. On a Friday. They had no tuna, uni, or squid. At a Japanese restaurant.

We will not be back.

Soba Nippon has been a favorite of ours as we visit each time we come to NYC. The food is genuinely authentic Japanese. They are mainly a soba (buckwheat) noodle venue, but their farms grow the buckwheat that produce the outstanding tasting soba noodles. The salmon carpaccio was an amazing starter. We will revisit Soba Nippon again when ever we're craving authentic soba dishes.
