We'd never encountered ramen noodles before, so were intrigued to try this eatery in our area. We weren't disappointed - great flavours and textures, and just that bit of difference from other noodle houses' offerings. A pleasant space to eat in, and frindley attentive staff.

Haven't been to Japan for a while so was really looking forward to this one judging by the reviews, but I was honestly disappointed. The portion was miserable and the taste not like the real one (I have never seen sour pickles in ramen noodles).
