This is one of those restaurants that are really worth a visit, not so much for the food but for the whole picture. The food is served in beautiful porcelain bowls nicely decorated with blue samurais, the walls are wood and also exquisitely decorated with wooden carvings. They were playing tasteful jazz music. When I went there, the crowd was... More

We had delicious ramen with pork belly and egg. The broth had a fish-taste, which sounds strange but was delicious. Price was 1100 yen for a huge bowl. Very authentic, we only saw locals in the shop at lunch time.

My husband and I ordered the house special with pork belly and large noodles. We loved it. The broth and pork belly were just perfect. This place is down an ally across from the post office. It's on street level. Look for the red sign (with I think a samurai). Use a machine to order then wait for a seat... More

This was our first meal in Japan and it was great. The reason I only gave it 4/5 was because I found the soup to be too salty. The other aspects of the dish I thoroughly enjoyed. As this was our first meal, we had no idea how to work the ticket machine. We kept hitting the buttons with the... More

Tsukemen ramen was very nice. Make sure you go for the thicker, creamier broth. When we were there, it was Option 1 on the vending machine. The pork belly was juicy and huge. 62 degree egg was cooked perfectly. The normal ramen (Option 3) was average. The location was a little bit hidden and thank God for Google Maps, otherwise... More

I was a little unconvinced by the soup as the soy based broth (typical of Tokyo ramen) was a little too salty for my liking but the pork slices which were included were amazing - the best I've tried. They appear to have been marinated and braised in a soy mixture, hence the dark colour but what them really stand... More

I ordered the standard bowl of ramen with 2 pieces of beautifully braised pork and a creamy boiled egg which I finished. My partner ordered the Noodles with the soup separately (not sure what it's called) but serving size was massive and he was unable to finish, got there on opening and was able to get a seat straight away...
