Good casual lunch

We had lunch here on our way from our hotel to a close by attraction. The restaurant is relatively close to the JR station and given that we were still finding our bearings in Tokyo we followed tripadvisor's suggestions and decided to try Menya Musashi. It's a fun casual little place: I doubt that... read more

This is a cute little hole in the wall and a great spot for ramen. If there is a line, don't worry. They have amazingly quick turnover. It's not very foreigner friendly, but you can make do. There is a machine where you can make your selection (I mostly pressed buttons), you pay and then you hand the cook your... More

Awesome spot for Ramen. This was one of the better Ramen spots I had the chance to try while in Japan. We arrived right as they were opening, we even got to see one of their employees walk into the street and yell that they were now open. Really easy for anyone to eat, just pay at the machine and...

We waited in line for about 10 minutes at lunch time, paid in a machine, sat behind a counter when it was our turn, and had wonderful pork ramen at a very reasonable price. The portions are pretty big. It was also a lot of fun: the 3-4 guys behind the counter shout in unison as various parts of the... More

Soft and chewy and just delicious. It was the first meal we had in japan and ordering ramen from a vending machine was new... More

Few years since I've been here, but still the best when I returned recently. If you don't speak the language and don't have a native speaking friend to assist, suggest you choose the most expensive option from the ticket machine, request large when they ask you and sit back and savour the best ramen noodles, broth, pork, egg etc. that...

It was a bit hard to find but a couple locals helped us find it. So happy they did, food was amazing, Staff was friendly and explained how to order on the machine. I really enjoyed the dipping noodles and the pork pieces. Noodles tasted so good!

As non Japanese speaking tourists we were surprised by the way the staff treated us, they were very kind and helped us out. When we walked in a guy immediately came and helped us with the machine on which you choose and pay your meal. After reading some reviews here we both just chose the number one and this was... More
