Not the best, but it will satisfy your tummy

What I like about this ramen shop is that it is open 24hrs a day. If you are craving for ramen in the middle of the night, and you're just a walk away from this store, then this is definitely the place you can go to.

I had heard good things about this restaurant and it certainly is located conveniently. It looks impressive with a big dragon sign in the middle of the very busy dotonbori street, but the ramen is subpar and the seating area needs to be better taken care of. There is much better food to be had in Osaka.

Go place for eating during the night as it close very late, cheap and quality. You can take the order by the machine and give it to staff. The prices are 600 and 900 yen (can't remember exactly). They sale only ramen of original ramen and Extra Chachu pork ramen, **The soup already has load of black pepper.**

It's quite likely that if it's your first time in Dotombori and want to eat ramen you will end up eating here. That's because this restaurant is located at the main road of Dotombori and has a huge dragon on its roof. The menu is really simple and you order by a food stub vending machine. You wait to get...

Having ramen for a late breakfast. Good ramen especially the roasted pork (char siew). Reasonable price and worth to give it a try.

We have decided to give kinryuramen a try as it was recommended by a number of travel books. Sadly, the roasted pork was mediocre and staff were unfriendly. Kimchi and chili chives were good though.

Stopped here for a late breakfast, was hungry and really enjoyed the meal. Value for money was good, but there are so many great ramen places, this was nothing special hence the rating.

we have had a lot of ramen having lived in a city that has a lot of ramen chains and this is by far the worst we've had. The Kinryuu stores all have this stinky wrench and it's so unbearable. The noodles are too thin and the broth is not thick enough. It's a self-serve restaurant but the price tag... More

I love kimchi and garlic. Kinryuramen is the best of both japanese & korean styled ramen. You order through the machine; either the usual or with extra chasu. You take off your shoes and sit at the tatami benches. When your order is ready, add garlic, kimchi and chilli chives as much as you want and then slurp your ramen.... More
