THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Kysoya Japanese Noodle House Restaurant Review

: Noodles in and out of soup are the mainstay at this woody, two-room spot with a sushi bar and tatami rooms. Order udon noodles as a main course or as part of a complete dinner. These typically feature a deep-fried entrée (pork cutlet, beef, chicken, shrimp), sometimes smothered with vegetables in a light sauce, accompanied by sesame-dressed salad and rice, all attractively arranged on a tray. Soba (buckwheat) noodles come hot in soup or cold with the traditional soy-based dipping sauce and add-ins. Sushi is another long suit, but standards like tempura and teriyaki can be disappointing. Bento boxes, rice dishes and à la carte portions of some entrées round out the menu. Meals begin with complimentary miso soup and Japanese pickles.
