Looks rough n ready, but great ramen.

It's only a tiny place, and looks a bit rundown, but the garlic ramen was delicious. There was also spicy version @ ¥700-750

I went there with my friend. The restaurant was quite small and packed with customers. I ordered the noodles with hot sauce and boiled egg. All I can say is this ramen is soooooo tasty and delicious. The aroma of the soup was so nice. The pork was thick but soft and juicy. I'm still craving for it until now.... More

This is a small eat at the counter style Ramen place. They have Ramen and beer etc. I opted for the "Very" spicy ramen and it was REALLY hot. But I have to say super tasty, It was highly recommended but maybe go for the less spicy options.

Waited until the shop open at 7pm - can see both locals and tourists waiting. Not difficult to order. Can see the pork being cook right in front of you! Ramen and the pork was a bit salty for my liking, but I was NOT thirsty after the meal.

They don't have an English menu but a member of staff kindly translated the short menu for us- ramen, spicy ramen, ramen with extra pork and then... More
