Ryan (雷庵)

The restaurant is situated on a side street just off Miyamasuzaka, an avenue which winds its way uphill from Shibuya station towards Aoyama.

The interior of Ryan does not give the impression of a typical soba restaurant. The glass-walled restaurant allows natural light to shine through and provide a warm and friendly atmosphere. A modern bistro or a stylish wine stand may come to mind when looking at the solid wood counter seats surrounding the kitchen. The open-style kitchen generates a well-balanced mix of Japanese and Western style dishes. In the back corner, there is a room where you can see the soba noodles being made behind a glass screen.
