I loved these. My fiancee didn't particularly care for them at all. He really does have the more discriminating palate, though if I could have, i would have voted this recipe at least a three-and-a-half. The flavor of the sauce, in my opinion, was perfectly biting and very complementary to the chosen Mandarin-Style Steak, Asian Slaw, and Spicy Cucumbers. So, if you enjoy the starchy-side of life, and a bit of spice as well: these noodles will tantalize! If you are not a fan of starch, and, well, have a more discriminating palate than I, you may not enjoy these quite as much. Soba noodles, apparently, are a matter of choice.

I made these again this weekend and added a little tahini paste and it was fabulous! I love cold sesame noodles and I make these over and over! What a great summer dish

I just made this recipe for diner and neither hubby or I liked it. It is certainly not the fault of the recipe, though, which was simple to prepare - I think we just don't like soba noodles! I'm going to try this one again with a lo mein noodle or a glass noodle and see what I get!

I made these last night to go with our chicken. We all loved them except for DD#1, she just didn't care for them. I loved the versitility of them. I want to try to add broccoli or snow peas next time. I will make again, (DD is going to college next fall...lol) so I will wait until then. Thank you so much for this recipe most of us loved.

We had this a bit less spicy with leftover chicken and added the Tahini (2 Tbs). It was a hit with the kids!

These were so tasty! I enjoyed these noodles very much, and my tasters ate several extra helpings. I loved the kick from the chili oil. I will make this again often. I used the vermicelli this time, as that was what I had available, and served this without chilling.

Simple, quick and savory side dish that I added to the dinner menu when we had an unexpected guest. Excellent side dish. Next time I'll probably top it with a bunch of sauteed veggies.

YUM! This recipe made alot, Thank goodness. I just couldn't get enough. I skipped the chili oil because I can not handle any spiciness at all and it was still great. My hubby put Sriracha on his and said it went very well.

I have always enjoyed dishes made with buckweat flour. So I picked up the Soba Noodles to try and then found a recipe to use them in. This recipe was very good. Quick, easy and yes it does make a ton. But thats ok because you will find that the more you eat, the more you want.;) Pollen, your aunt must be a wonderful cook! I can't wait to take this dish to a potluck. Thank you for sharing

Considering my bad past with soba, I was really pleased with this recipe. I never knew soba could actually taste good!
