This is a wonderful little find. It is cheap enough (for Paris) for a great traditional Japanese dish like this. The service is fast and efficient.

Tried Kintaro after reading the positive reviews here. I was very happy with the experience, the service was really friendly, fast and the food was delicious. Loved the informality of the place too. Like a ramen shop in Japan. I cannot tell about the negative reviews talking about the quality of the broth as I am not an expert but... More

We went to Kintaro during our stay in Paris in the beginning of January and wanted to eat ramen which was not yet available in Geneva. After being a bit disappointed by Kotteri Ramen Naritake (the broth was way too salty) and frustrated because the excellent restaurant Takara was closed for the holidays, we decided to come here based on...

Quick and good spot for lunch in the CBD around Opéra. This place can get really packed but the service is fast. Don't expect to stay over there long, it is more like a cantine kind of place with overall good food.

We were very surprised how tasty the food was. Great flavour and reasonable prices. Where they lose that last point is in their atmosphere, or lack thereof. If this isn't as important to you and you just want a good quality Japanese meal, then definitely give Kintaro Lamen a go. It can be quite busy, so you can expect shared,... More

There must be a shortage of decent ramen in Paris for this to get such a high rating. I wish I had done more research than the TA reviews on this place. We had the ramen with the pork belly. It hardly had any depth of flavor. All I could taste was watery soy broth and ramen noodle that was... More
