    Nice, authentic-tasting dish which produces many portions. It is rather salty, which I don't mind but I'm a bit of a salt fiend. Maybe go for low-salt soy-sauce if you're not such a fan.  -  01 Feb 2016


    What a wonderful recipe. We loved it!  -  11 Feb 2013


    This recipe is getting rave reviews so it's obviously very popular and delicious to the reviewers, but having lived in Japan for 23 years, I must say this is not an authentic recipe. A true Japanese yakisoba recipe would never have any chili sauce in it, and it would be finished with matchstick red pickled ginger and Aonori (green flake-type seaweed). Japanese foods tend to have very subtle favors which probably does not have "enough kick" for the American palate, and as a result, recipes tend to get modified quite extensively. I mean no offense by this review, just wanted to inform the public.  -  03 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
