Excellent and fast

There is only really soup on the menu but it is reliably good, the service is quick and if the sun is out there is a lovely place to sit almost on the river (the other side of the road).

Having recently moved from London, I've been in search of a great Ramen restaurant for a while now. Cocolo is quite a favourite with the locals and I can definitely see why. I "only" had the Miso Ramen and it was absolutely delicious. It was great to see the chefs making the soup and everything just kind of felt right.... More

The ramen is way too light and barely tastes anything compared to a real thick white Tonkotsu ramen soup. It's OK if it is your first ramen, but it is not even close to the real thing. I really don't understand all the hype around this restaurant.

The restaurant itself was surprisingly easy to find. It is not an obvious restaurant as it is small so only a doorway but you could probably recognise it by the queues outside the door! We went at dinner time around 7.30pm and waited roughly 15 minutes for a seat. I think this is usual as the restaurant is so busy... More

I honestly love everything about this place! When we arrived we had to wait in a line outside and we weren't sure if it's worth it. But now I would wait even longer (plus you can order drink while waiting)! Ramen was simply amazing, place is small but really charming and staff was extremly kind and nice! Great place! I... More

This place is highly popular so difficult to get in. Go early!! The food is delicious. Not recommended for people who like to linger and are claustrophobic but friendly service and warm atmosphere.

I spent my first few years in Berlin convinced that I will never find decent Ramen in this city, until one day a friend took me to this place back in 2008. But since then this place has been a regular hangout - they only made a few types of Ramen but all are so good, I always drink the... More

Delicious ramen, definitely recommend everyone to go try. There will be a line up because it's a small place with lots of traffic, crowded and need to sit beside strangers but that's part of the experience. Very cozy and authentic ramen. Go check it out! There are lots of Cafe and bars in thar area by Rosenthaler platz for coffee... More

Was on a city break and Berlin and came across this place on the time out top 30 places to eat. Literally the best tonkatsu ramen I've had outside of Tokyo. Highly recommended!

I'm an Asian and have been in Japan many times. Now I study in Berlin... Sometimes I long for Asian cuisine and last night my friends took me to Cocolo. The cooks whom I considered should be Japanese are really friendly and professional. The ramen was nice and the "soul of ramen": the soup, was delicious, too. Although I'm far... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
