Fantastic hand-made Ramen

Overall, excellent Ramen at a very cool location. You will definitely leave stuffed - the large ramen is not for the faint hearted. The soy soup base Is best (first column)

I couldn't tell what I was ordering, because the machine you order from is in Japanese. There are some pictures, but it does little to help. I went around 2 PM and it was packed, luckily as a solo visitor, I was able to snag a single spot quickly. I picked what the guy in front of me selected, and... More

I don't know about the others but we thought the ramen was great! First of all it was a bit difficult to find as it was on a side street. We asked a friendly Japanese couple who directed us to the right place as we walked right past it! It was a very rainy night so we were relieved to... More

Well it's a great little ramen spot. We managed to get in after the lunchtime rush so it was quiet. You can see the kitchen in full view, the industrial style sinks, cooking pots etc. The food ... I was waiting for the ramen of my life but the broth was fish based. Needless to say I was expecting something... More

I didn't like the broth. All in all it wasn't meaty it was more soy based or even fishy. You get 2 big fat pieces of wark which was great.

Not sure if it's the best ramen in Tokyo but at least the best ramen we've tried. We just came from Shinjuku station really hungry for dinner after a Hakone day tour. We had to walk about 15 minutes (Google maps was accurate) then found the place. We were lucky because the line is short. It was our 1st time... More

On a side street on ground level just north of Shinjuku station. A counter seating arrangement with a machine to take the order and cash, then hand over the chit to the server at the counter. We came in a group of four, had to split up initially but the staff very kindly moved us back as a group when... More

After dreaming of the food in Japan for months, I was a bit disappointed that nothing I had tried so far the first day had really wowed me. Then came this place...amazing! It's a bit hard to spot since the name isn't on the front of the building (in English, anyway), so just look for the two red curtains. You... More

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.
