This place was an amazing ramen restaurant. It was really well done and had great flavour. My friend who is a ramen fiend even was thoroughly impressed. Great food, great service and environment. Really impressed and if you want ramen in Tokyo, I recommend here. Definitely would come back next trip.

Been busy eating ramen when I was in Tokyo. This turn out to be my favourite ramen here. It taste really really nice that I cant forget the memory. They had chain store in Singapore but I feel the standard are so much different. Over here, they ask you about the thickness of the ramen, the soup and oil. I... More

This was recommended by my local team as the classic Ramen experience. Expect a line, order from a machine with cash and then eat quickly without speaking:-) If this is a place where you want to chat with your friends while slurping noodles and drinking beers, you are probably at the wrong place. The seating is small so there is... More

The best Tsukemen in the world hands down. Pick your dish from the vending machine, wait for a seat in anticipation for the best Ramen you'll ever have.

This place was recommended by my son's friend who are there a few days before we did and raved about their tsukemen (pork noodle dish with dipping sauce. The pork was very tasty, although the dipping sauce was a little on the salty side as it was supposed to be anchovies-based. Expect to line up outside and even inside. But... More

STEP ONE: Find the place. It's only a block away from the train station and down an dark alleyway. STEP TWO: Use the vending machine inside. I repeat. You order with the vending machine. Yes, I know it's not in English. Help is provided if you ask. (Hot tip for young players - put money in first to make the... More

I am not really a Ramen person. When I was there in Shinjuku, I checkout this place with my family for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised by the good Ramen served in this small eatery. Actually we just ordered based on the vending machine Ramen pictures without knowing the detailed difference. But all Ramens were very yummy. The soup was... More

A hole in the wall that's hard to find, but worth the effort. Choose your Ramen via the vending machine (no English) and give the chit that the machine ejects to the counter man who places your order. Friendly counter man helped explain the choices (size of the portion and variety of ingredients), which helped immensely. Plentiful, inexpensive authentic Ramen... More
