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

Wow, this is some seriously flavorful ramen! Well worth the wait that moved rather quickly. Each component of the ramen experience is exceptional - noodles, broth and items in the broth including the perfectly cooked egg. The flavors are very pronounced and rich. The noodles are of perfect texture. If you are a ramen lover this is a must visit.

The quenes and the reviews are proof of Rokurinsha's popularity and hype as the best Tsukemen in Tokyo. Fantastic soup/broth that is well-boiled (combination of pork and fish) that is tasty and with great texture (not overly thick) - the broth is really the most critical part that makes a good tsukemen. Best of all, the broth is warm. Thick... More

We went to Rokurinsha after hearing about it on the David Chang PBS show. Yes, the long lines are real, but that means it's probably good. 100 salarymen can't be wrong. We only waited for about 40 minutes at the "60 minute" mark. They have a very efficient system where someone lets you know when you can put your money... More
