The photos on this are not accurate, it is a small 12 seat restaurant upstairs in the Golden Gai area, you line up beside building in a small alley... this was fun to me, added to the experience. I was under the impression is was...More

It's rude and narrow, sometimes there's a long queue but you definitely have to go. A superior Ramen with a tremendous balance between pork slices and the fishy broth. So go, eat and such it till the last drop. P.S.: don't trust pictures in this...More

It's a really small place with just a handful of seats but fortunately I went during off peak hours so managed to get a seat immediately. The ramen was super good and the anchovy & pork broth was thick, full of flavour and absolutely delicious......More

I would say they are better than their more famous competitor as they have more options on the menu. The anchovy soup based is nice. When we arrived at this shop in the morning they were doing some filming, we were directed to their other...More

This place probably isn't the best ramen in the city but that doesn't mean it isn't great. It truly delivers on what you imagine eating ramen in Tokyo is like. It feels authentic even if it has become a tourist must-do item. The food was...More

First time I tried a sardine based broth. It’s good but I probably won’t crave it often. I got the dipping ramen and it’s pretty good. Portion is good too.
