Never eaten Ramen before, so happy to stumble across this little restaurant when looking for a place to have a light meal. Had the Negi (Leek, Chasyu, egg and Vegetables) and my sister the Tori Karaage (Deep Fried Chicken, egg and vegetables). Were both very tasty and filling. Took a table outside and enjoyed the passing crowd in this quiet... More

Awesome selection of ramen. All ramen are delicious!! Recommend the tofu or beef if after a mild version (can even get vego stock). Or the curry beef if you can handle a bit of spice. Great bento options too. Beef ramen cuts vary, sometimes a bit gristly. If you like chilli get some kimchi on top of your ramen. Beer,... More

I had heard lovely reports on this place and was very excited to try their ramen, it was ok! I was expecting a lot more flavour and also disappointing that there was no water available to drink? I could only have tea.

Good, affordable and almost authentic Japanese Ramen, Bento and other Japanese dishes. This unpretentious cafe style eatery is basic in deco. Service is prompt and food is good and rather authentic. Very reasonable in price and generous servings. Mostly walk-in clienteles as booking is not essential.Will definitely be going back again.

No nasty surprises, that's what I like about franchise. The flavours are nice, price is fair, not better than any other ajisen, but everything is on standard. I enjoyed the noodles.

(1) Ramen noodle soup needs to be hot. However, it was almost cold. I did not taste much of miso in my Miso Ramen noodles. Maybe cutting the corners? (2) I have ordered Agedashi Tofu as an appetiser. Other starters came before the Ramen noodles expect mine. I have reminded them politely, It finally arrived when I was almost finished... More

Centrally located and frequented by student crowd it remains a good place for nice Japanese food that is moderately priced. Very good selection that is made fast and served quickly. Almost all the tofu dishes and soups are wonderful. The bento box is decently priced and very tasty.

You can't complain about the prices here, specially compared with other restaurants in the area. One small nibble of tapas in two other places I eat were more than my ramen! The service was efficient and the ramen arrived quickly, hot and yummy. I would not put the ramen in the class of the Shinjuku places I have experienced but... More
