Overview

The Ramen University is a fun and exciting ramen cooking school for one day. You can make your original ramen in the real kitchen of a ramen restaurant with your friends and an awesome chef. You’ll be asked to blend your original soup mix, pick the garnishes and toppings, as well as the type of noodles. It will be a one-of-a-kind ramen that you will create.

The experience was the best part of this place (oh and the fried rice). Ramen was just average - the lack of meat was the most disappointing. Someone ordered karaage next to us which looked amazing. But Yeah, ramen could have been better.

The flames were impressive but left an acrid metallic flavour in the ramen. Obviously a well run establishment but if you want good tasting ramen go elsewhere!

Good experience, tasty food, friendly staff. But as everything good you will have to wait little bit outside before you enter.

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its

bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of

The website has been offline the last week as well, I guess the course is not available any more?
