You might have to queue for a little while but the wait is definitely worth it! The meal was very authentic and tasty, and the booths were cute to dine in. What a great experience, highly recommend it.

We went back. And as usual, We had a great ramen experience. Even the kids enjoyed the ramen. Still there is a line to accommodate us. But it is worth the wait :)
