First off, this place can be a bit hard to find so don't be shy about using the interactive maps in the main hallway of Tokyo station. Once you find the right hall, Rokurinsha is the last in a line of 3 noodle restaurants on the corner; likely the line will be going around this corner. Expect to wait around... More

There are a couple of things that threw me off about this place. First, you order your dish (ramen or tsukemen via a vending machine that gives you a little ticket. Just a heads up, there is no English what so ever on this machine. My wife and I went early in the morning before catching a train to Kyoto.... More

If you find yourself in Tokyo Station, and have time to wait in line (and love ramen/tsukemen), I highly recommend this restaurant. Noodles cooked perfectly, and the dipping broth was delicious and savory. Beware of the large size...it is really large! I waited in line around 45 minutes to sit down and eat, and had no regrets after finishing my... More

We arrived at Ramen Street in Tokyo station around 7:30 am on a Friday morning and waited in line for approximately 20 minutes which is far less time than I was led to believe by reading some of the reviews online. This is not a restaurant for sitting around and enjoying peoples company and whiling away the morning. This is... More

Ramen for us is thin noodles in a soup. Tsukemen is thick noodles that comes with a thick dipping soup. The flavors and taste between ramen and tsukemen are VERY different !! We thought with the great reviews, we would give it a try. We tried to like it but we did not like it at all. I mean, we... More

Ramen is a comfort food for Japanese. There are thousands of ramen stalls in Tokyo alone, with various blogs that comment on them. Numerous interpretations of ramen, with different style, noodle texture, soup base, side toppings, and flavor. In this case, tsukumen is "dipping noodle", different way to eat Japanese noodle, a slight departure from traditional ramen where noodle is... More

This is one shop at Tokyo Station with a long long queue each time I pass by it. I queued for an hour during lunch time to try out this shop and wasn’t disappointed. The portion here is really generous and the broth is really thick and flavorful. Interesting way to eat ramen, and just thinking about it makes me... More

You'll always find the longest queue at Rokurinsha and the long lines probably says it all. They are known to be Tokyo's best tsukemen or dipping noodles. Rokurinsha is famous for it's thick noodles served with dipping sauce which is creamy and flavourful. People are known to wait for over an hour for this. We arrived at about 8 pm... More

I love ramen. I've been to the top spots in NYC & Tokyo... This place was awful. Like eating whale bile with cold noodles. "People can't think for themselves" should be the title of this review. Everyone is just echoing "...David Chang," "...long lines," "...won some award," etc. Truth is, unless you have a Japanese palate and grew up on... More
