Great Ramen, Great Prices, Great Atmosphere

Feel like a hearty bowl of Ramen after a hard day exploring Kyoto?! Then look no further. We went here based on the recommendation of a friend from Kyoto and were very happy to have experienced the place.

When tired of walking I choosed a restaurant looked good. The service was ok, eventhough the waitress didn't know much English and their menu was so complicated, I even couldn't imagine how the food was from the English description they gave below. The noodle is quite sweet and cool, more suitable for summer i think, but tempura and shushi were... More
