What’s up with the downtown SOBA?

2007/11/08

SOBA used to be one of my favorite lunch destinations and now with the loss of Super Burrito, Hans, and Kushinbo Kitchen, there are few affordable options for lunch downtown. But the last few times I’ve gone to lunch, the food has taken insanely long to make its way to our table.

The last two times the wife and I went there for lunch, once on a Saturday and once during the week, we sat for what seemed like forever waiting for our grub. The Saturday that we went seemed sort of busy with the tables nearly full but we were the only ones in line, found a table and then sat and sat. Just last week we went and the same thing happened. I made a note of the time especially because we had an appointment to get to in about 45 minutes.

We sat for 25 mintues after ordering and getting our beverages before the food got to our table. Does that sound like a long time for anyone else?

What bothered me was that both times I went the chicken was way overcooked. Haven’t gone back since.

Sounds like a good candidate for that Chef Ramsey guy!

Sorry about the wait, but we are trying to become more efficient. We make everything fresh when it is ordered, so sometimes it may take a little longer. We appreciate the comments greatly and will continue to monitor the quality of our food and train our cooks. We really hope you give us another chance.
