Excellent excellent ramen shop. You order at a vending machine and then wait in line for a seat. The bar seats maybe about 15-20 people. But people didn't linger so we ate quickly. The vending machine had traditional pork ramen and dip ramen. Beer was available which you also buy at the machine. Word to the wise--nobody speaks English there.... More

Yes, this is excellent Ramen. After taking the train all day from Hiroshima to Tokyo (Shinjuku), I decided to make the trip here to eat. It was worth it! There aren't very many seats, and the seating is in an "L" configuration around the kitchen. You buy your food tickets at a machine and give to your cook. Very quickly... More

I can't say how delicious this place is - unpretentious, warm and friendly, and best of all, easy to find! Knowing how easy it is to get lost in Tokyo, and how difficult it is to find an address on the map, this was by far the most rewarding dinner it had in a long time. I read on a... More

Such good ramen, and really fun listening to the chefs shout to each other whilst cooking your dinner. One long counter with about 15 seats, you order at a vending machine and then your dinner is presented to you. Excellent value, 1000yen for a massive bowl of ramen with 2 kinds of amazing pork and one of those eggs, oh... More

You know that feeling when you travel to a far away land, you look forward to immersing yourself in their culture, the natives...and you find an amazingly authentic looking restaurant….only to get an English speaking waiter and English menu? Well, lucky for you this ain’t one of those places!! The vibe of the place is true Japanese and I was... More

I am obsessed with Japanese food. When my wife and I went to Japan, we made it a point to try as many different styles of Japanese cuisine as possible. Even for someone who lives in New York, the sheer number of restaurants in Tokyo is overwhelming so we asked our friends who live in Tokyo for a ramen recommendation.... More

I've been doing thorough research on great ramen shops prior to landing in Tokyo. Menya Musashi was on my list and I came here right after I checked into my Shinjuku hotel. WOW!! That's all I kept saying throughout my meal. I ignored my wife the whole time, slurping my ramen and eating ravenously, while uttering the same word over... More

This place was okay, came here because I read reviews on trip advisor. Nice little joint but my ramen was not the best I had, the portion of meat was good and the service and staff were nice except that can't speak engrish. BTW If you run into a black hustler named Evans Peters tell him Raymond and Ming said... More

For me, it's hard to find bad ramen in Tokyo, but this one is definitely one of my favorite. Soup and noodle is good, but the pork is most memorable. Thick and soft, juicy and fatty. Sometimes I crave for it.. Haha. But I still opted for Kyushu Jangara in Harajuku for the best ramen in Tokyo.
