Place is convenient to my hotel and was recommended by one of the staff. I had the negi shoyu ramen which tasted quite good but a little difficult to eat as the negi was long and uncut. Place was busy with lots of foreigners.

Appears to be very popular as there was a line outside during lunch. As with any place in Japan, if the dining space is small, lines will result. Cash only. Special shoyu ramen and miso ramen were what we ordered. You can customize noodle firmness...More

Great service and even better ramen. We had the special ramen soup - pork, egg, noodles and awesome soup. Heaven! Full of flavour yet soothing and regenerative. Probably the best ramen around

To my great surprise they easily accommodated our family of 7 and had something on the menu for everyone! Fried rice, meat or ramen, it was all available. Service was quick and water was free and plentiful. A little small, but tables turn over quickly....More

Just came here because we was hungry. The price around 800 yen for a portion of ramen, i think its not worthy enough. The sauce are good but not great, its more worthy to eat other famous ramen.

is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
