It was a Sunday morning and we went at around 11:40am, the queue was really long and we had to wait for 1 hour. The restaurant was really small and they do not have AC. However the ramen tasted really good! They have several broths to choose from: miso, soy sauce, salt. We liked soy sauce broth the most, not... More

Cons: Long queues and a fair distance from city center (20-min trip) neither of which should be a problem if you're feeling adventurous! Pros: We had the miso ramen (at JPY750, it's cheaper than touristy Ramen Alley) and it was glorious in a very understated and subtle sort of way. The broth had depth--almost earthy--that was complemented perfectly by the... More

The best ramen shop in sapporo. I tried ramen alley in sapporo. But to me this place is a lot better. The line outside the shop would tell you why it's the best ramen shop in sapporo. Try the miso and shio ramen. They have tasty broth. The only downside is they're pretty cheapskate in giving the pork slice.

This ramen was voted number one by ramen chefs. I have tried miso and shio (salt) ramen here and both are amazing! If you love ramen this place is a must visit while you're in Sapporo. There's a line waiting outside the door so dress warm if you come in winter!

When a popular magazine asked ramen chefs to vote for THEIR fave noodles and soup place - this simple, suburban restaurant came out tops. Five ramen flavors on the menu - but make sure to order the juicy "cha-shu" pork slices for topping, whatever you have. Choices are: Miso, Spicy miso, Shoyu, Spicy Shoyu and Salt. Y100 for extra big.... More

Best ramen in Hokkaido, prepare for a long queue but queues are orderly and pretty fast. Ramen is good, place is a bit too small, but well worth the wait. Definitely come back again when I am in town

waiting in line is not worth it especially for lunch (i cant imagine if its winter). the pace is small and well staffed. The broth is so so, probably tastes like any of the Ramen joints in Ramen Alley. The noodles are thicker which makes it compared to a baby brother of udon. its too hot when served which makes...

A popular ramen restaurant in Sapporo with people always lining up in front, famous for its miso ramen. The place is about 8 minutes walk from Misono station. The shop itself is a little small but you definitely can't miss the line in front of it. We went there about 11 AM and had to wait about 30 minutes before... More

Knowing it's popularity, we decided to go there 10-15min earlier than its opening time but when we were there... We realised we had to queue in the line in the cold! When you finally get in there's another queue! But the queue moved pretty quickly (thank god) and we were in at 11.30am. I read elsewhere they open "unofficially" at... More

since there are so many good reviews on this place our party decide to give this place a try. it's a bit of effort to get there from the city area(3-4stops out of susukino) and a decent walk to the restaurant. we got there at 11am on a weekday and the queue was already around 7people in front of us....
