Amazing noodles!

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!

I've had in my life(so far) The thick fatty pieces of meat are so tender, juicy, and soft, that I still... More

A wow what an experience. probably the best ramen I've ever had, and just tasted so authentic. probably because it was, Made by some of the best ramen chefs in japan, and the restaurant has... More

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

Love it! If you like chewy noodle, try LARGE. We did not understand why the cook ask large or regular after we paid. We thought we didnt want to waster so we said REGULAR. But, we got large noodle by mistake. And what a great mistake that was. I tried the tsukemen (dipping style). It was on the salty side.... More

Loved the dipping ramen here especially with the fatty slow cooked pork pieces, and slurpable noodles. It gets especially packed during lunch and seating set up is up at the bench facing the kitchen, so try to beat the rush. The portions are very generous (esp. the noodles). The broth looks rich but after dipping, it's just perfect!

This was my second favourite ramen spot in tokyo (close second though!) with amazing great chucks of pork that is both a bit different from your usual ramen and also tasty. The reason it gets the number two spot is because the broth had a fishy taste (i think they include seaweed when cooking the broth) whereas I prefer a... More

Simply amazing Japanese ramen. The place has a line of people waiting to get in. You place your order at the machine and then give your ticket to the guy behind the counter. Seating is like a long sushi bar and as people leave the people in line take a seat and the guy behind the counter serves you your... More

The tonkatsu ramen is delicious, especially the slow-bruised pork (a must try) The portion is adequate for one person and the broth not too oily, which is the reason I like it very much. The environment is great with traditional deco. Worth a try!

This place was suggested to me by a friend, and I was so glad he did. This place had one of the best ramens I had ever tasted. The thick slices of pork were delicious, tender, and sweet, the broth was to die for. I don't think my husband and I have ever enjoyed ramen so much. It was a... More
