We waited 3 hours like the pretend foodies we are! But it was so worth it! I was a bit sceptical as to how you can make ramen Michelin stat but now I know. The broth so rich and flavoursome, the thick cut pork so...More
Had some trouble finding the shop tucked away in some Tokyo suburb but finally found the ramen with a a Michelin Star. Bar accommodates roughly 10 diners and queue can get long. Second time here and arrived at 820pm with maybe 8 people ahead. I...More
It's definitely not as good as I remember. I have been to nakiryu every time I have been to Tokyo. And it's been stellar every time except today. I don't know why but today's tan tan lacked that savory flavour I usually expect. Did I...More
Small shop, we waited 90mins or so just to get inside. We had a family of 6 and they couldn't accommodate us all at once. The noodles are not worth if you have to wait 90mins. It's only worth waiting for AT MOST 30mins. We...More
As typical for well-known restaurants in Tōkyō, there is a long queue outside the restaurant which only caters for 10 guests at a time.
I had to wait approx 1 h 45 min before I could enter the restaurant. Food is then ordered and paid...More
One of the restaurants on our list because the hubby wanted to try it. He had the dried one from the convenience store a couple nights prior (to compare taste) and we tried this place in person. Be prepared to wait if you're not there...More
We got to the restaurant prior to opening about 45 minutes and were still 6-7th in line. Just barely making it in time to be served first!
Keep in mind at the time of this writing that the restaurant seated 12 at a time and...More

We tried the tradition and the deluxe ramen, both great.
Gyosas were also great!
Great Palace for a first experience on...More
Throughout my life, I had my share of ramen. But I wanted to try an awesome ramen place. Nakiryu was raged along with another local ramen place as being the pioneer of Michelin ramen places. After locating the place, I was 30 minutes early to...More
The ramen is truly spectacular and one of the tastiest meals in a two week trip to Japan. No need to go large as the normal size is plenty and don’t bother with beer as it will just fill you up. Warning: get here early!!We...More
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of
this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.

I went during the week and got there around 5pm as well. There was nobody there and the queue didn’t really form until around 5:30pm. We got in right away for the first seating because we got there so early, but if you miss the first seating then yes you will definitely be waiting more than an hour.
