The ramen is very tender and the soup is amazing rich. Strongly recommend for anyone who just jump off the plane and looking for a heart warming ramen.

Found this hidden gem a few blocks north of Shinjuku station. Acting on the recommendation of a good friend who has eaten here, my daughter and I sought this place out. When we walked in the door, we saw a short line of people waiting for a seat at the counter, but we also saw a machine with the menu... More

The vending machine at the front was confusing at first, so I hit the top left button and the big one labeled, "BEER", and I did not regret it. This place was awesome and worth the 10 minute walk from Shinjuku Station.

Husband and I went for lunch today. There was a line but it didn't take long to be seated. Gives you time to take everything in. Very cool atmosphere. He had miso ramen and I had tsukumen. DELICIOUS rich broth and yummy chewy noodles. I had regular size and he had large (no extra charge). Regular was plenty! The soy... More

Wow, this is an incredible place. Their pork belly ramen is to die for. The pork belly itself is melting in the mouth. I don't know what they do with the egg, but it is out of this world. The ramen are perfectly cooked. This is not a fancy place - just a L-shape counter around the cooking area. But... More

I got back from Japan 4 months ago and Ramen still isn't the same to me, I think about this Ramen weekly. The pork belly melts in your mouth and pulls apart so tenderly. The broth is flavorful and unlike any I have tasted before. The egg is perfectly poached with the yolk still runny. The noodles are excellent and... More

The pork belly ramen (#1) is truly the best ramen I've ever had, and I eat a lot of excellent ramen in San Francisco. Marinated and then pan seared, the huge, thick chunks of pork are insanely flavorful. How do they make it so good?? And why can't other ramen joints do that?? The broth, a beautiful deep chestnut color,... More

We took the soup based ramen but realised that most Jap ordered the dry noodles with soup dip. Didn't have chance to try that. Noodles used is a bit fatter than the usual ramen.

Overrated. This is good but this should not be the best in Shinjuku. I know because I live in Shinnjuku.
