Expect to wait a bit in queue for this place, but it will be worth it. Be sure to bring cash as you will have to place your order at a automatic ticket machine that don't accept credit cards. At the machine you will select your dish and side orders and each item will produce a ticket that you bring... More

Some of the best ramen we ate in Tokyo. Be prepared for a wait at dinner time but it's definitely worth it. If you're in shibuya you definitely need to stop by!

Great and very adequate concept where you can have a nice noodle soup (as spicy as you like it) that you can consume privately and quickly. Pick your meal and pay upfront. then just sit down and wait 2 minutes or your meal to be served.

This ramen is seriously overrated. The over an hour I waited in line was a waste of time in my opinion. I think other branches have shorter lines, if there wasn't a line I would still say it's good ramen but there's absolutely nothing special about it while there are soo many better or more special ramen and other noodle...

My wife doesn't like pork but at least she's not allergic to it - she tuned the order to less fat and mushrooms instead of pork and regular spicy and was happy with it (more or less). I made it thick with everything except spice and was grunting happily because this thing is tasty! I know nothing about sizzled eggs... More

I am allergic to pork, which left me with no options on the menu aside from rice, a hard boiled egg, nori, and mushrooms. When you go to ramen you must expect this to be the case, however, without soya sauce, my meal really was terrible. Awkward dining experience; I'd recommend only if you want a quick, authentic ramen experience.

PRO : - The Ramen was good, many choice from how strong do you want the soup, how spice do you want etc - the price is decent CONS : - Many tourists came to eat here so prepare yourself to wait long in line.

Overall taste was good, and also I like that we can decide ingredient of ramen, but unlike other great ramen store, they uses boiled egg instead of sizzled egg, which is one of the biggest indicator of how great the ramen store is.

This restaurant is usually on any top 10 ramen list for Tokyo and it is very unique with its cubicle set up. It's definitely worth a trip even if it's just to see what the fuss about and eat a meal in a cubicle and invisible waitress. For newbie: There is usually a queue during lunch and dinner so try...

A lot of privacy was given, great for lone travellers! Authentic and scrumptious taste! The green tea pudding is a MUST TRY!!!! Got a little lost finding the place but after asking friendly and helpful university students, he offered us to lead and help asking around! :)

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
