Delicious Ramen!

In order to get into the shop you walk off the main road past a few dodgy looking places into this hiding hole. It is well worth it! For only 750 yen you get a great ramen with an incredibly rich broth and great noodles to slurp. The pop music inside was atrocious, but I would definitely return.

Pork deliciousness Yummy broth This was the ramen I had waited for and it nailed it I find finding japanese restaurants hard because of the lack of english outside - this is black and vermillion I think and on the ground floor so if u think u see it just go in Google maps wasn't very precise

have to agree with my fellow TR reviewer difficult to find when you do look straight at the restaurant wihich has Orange signs and a dive centre about 100 yrds to your left. It is a small street off the main drag. Okay if this is a chain next time you walk into your local ( not including ) wetherspoons... More

You order your ramen using a vending machine. Directions on how to order- 1. Put money in 2. Choose a meal (most people recommend the top left one) 3. Choose how many you want. 4. Take the printed piece of paper 5. Give the paper to the chef when they ask 6. Enjoy your delicious bowl of pork, egg and... More

Menya Musashi is a famous chain ramen restaurant in Japan and their outlet in Shinjuku is their main restaurant. Do come here early or later if you would like to have their delicious ramen queue free. The restaurant is a bit hard to locate as the signboard does not have any English wording. The shop name is in japanese and... More

It was a little tricky to find, but worth the trouble. Delicious bowl of shoyu ramen with pork. The wait staff will help you in ordering if you are unfamiliar with using the vending machine. Would eat here every day if I could!

Good food, fast, and a great local experience. The perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg is out of this world.

The noodle in this ramen store has reached mastery in terms of its tensile strength, taste and consistency. It doesn't break apart easily nor become soggy even if you take your time with it. The pork that accompanies it is succulent but not suitable for those watching their waist line. The hard boiled egg was done enough to have its... More

This place is fantastic, you order from a machine which prints out a ticket. The buttons on the left are soy based broth with the middle buttons being miso based broth. Both good but I prefer the soy based. Melt in the mouth pork great noodles and a chilled beer, perfect dinner and it cost less than $10.

Order the #1 and you can't go wrong. Delicious soy based ramen soup with pork belly and soft boiled egg. Guys are fun to watch and listen to even though you have no idea what they are saying. Fun atmosphere eating noodles at the bar.

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
