I visited this restaurant twice while I was in Kyoto. Ramen is amazing. Staff are lovely. Price is great. We didn't have to wait long as we were in Kyoto during Winter and there were fewer tourists around. Highly recommend.

I really like this restaurant in lots of ways, staff are friendly, I liked the music and atmosphere but the food just didn't do it for me. I'm a ramen fanatic - I could eat it all day! However, the burnt soy ramen was mostly oil and lacked flavour, the burnt miso one was a bit better but again wasn't... More

The burnt ramen here seems an affectation. Although the ramen is prepared with care, the use of burned remnants to flavor the broth adds nothing good to the flavor. Likely the other dishes are better.

my wife and i tried the burnt shoyu ramen. both of us found it to be too oily, giving the noodles a bad "mouth feel". the basic flavor of the soup was ok (not great) but the burnt oil was a real downer. we tried it a second time and ordered the shio ramen. the noodles were too thin, like... More

Almost two hours waiting in line to get in. But it's definately WORTH it. The ramen with black soup is very special and signature like no other ( for me). The soup is always hot till the last dip. The atmosphere is good, nice design restaurant and great service. Definately will comr back

Waited for 25 mins outside at 5°c then called our group. Went inside, nice ambiance and warm. Ordered the burnt miso ramen and the gyoza... and it was really amazing... you smell burnt food at first but when in the mouth, the taste completely changed.. must try!!!

This popular restaurant among the young & trendy is overrated & over hyped. There were long queues most of the time. A great way around it is to reserve in advance. Admittedly the food is OK, I'd say above average but quite pricey, especially comparing to many nearby eateries in Nishki Market. Decor is modern & spacious with a good... More

This place was a HUGE SCAM. Unbelievable. Firstly, we waited close to an hour out in the freezing cold even though they had empty tables because their service was so slow. Then, the ramen came with lots of add-ons and was much more expensive (1100 yen) versus ichiran ramen or Ippudo at 800 yen. The worst part was when AFTER... More
