I tried this place because it was near my Airbnb and my last night in Kyoto. I wish I tried it earlier, I probably would have eaten there every night. It was so good. Fast service and god portions. I don’t remember the type of...ramen it was but again, it was delicious. Your order from a vending machine which was a first for me, but they have pictures and it helps. Also, once you are done there is kelp broth on the table, add it to the other brought they give you for the noodles and it’s like a soup. I recommend it to all.More

Lots of good reviews are often a good indication that it is good. Well here this is certainly the case. It’s basic simply good ramen which we enjoyed a lot. Nothing fancy but honest good ramen a real treasure!

This was a good Ramen spot. It was actually my first time trying tsukemen style and I really enjoyed it. The 2 man staff that night was real nice and work very hard. The noodles were excellent (I could've at them alone) and the dipping...soup/broth was unique, I never had that flavor (before or after this experience). It opened at 6pm and I was there around 6:15pm on a Sunday night and had to wait about 30 minutes, but worth it. Enjoy.More

It is a must, for less than 1000 yen you have a very tasteful ramen, there are different possibilities. If you are in the neighborhood, you have to try it!

I just want to say that if the boss is looking at this review, please hire one more staff to make at least two staff at your Super busy and crowded restaurant. The person running the place is a guy who is doing everything from...the cooking of the ramen sauce, the dish washing, and also the cleaning of tables. I feel really really sorry for the guy.More

Searching ramen found this place on TripAdvisor and what an experience arrived just after 6 and joined queue. Menu easy to understand as is ticket ordering machine. Only 20 minute wait. The atmosphere aroma and food made it must do if visiting Kyoto. The meal...were a good size and so packed with flavour. Most other diners were regulars. Highly recommend if you want the true ramen experience.More

Don’t let the queue put you off- it goes down really quickly so you only end up waiting 20-30min maximum and the food is definitely worth that!! We went twice during our stay in Kyoto and tried the whole menu- everything is very tasty

There are 3 regular menu options: tsukemen (dipping noodles), meat miso ramen and normal ramen (I recommend getting a boiled egg as a side dish with this one). There is also a special option, which was thick noodles with meat cuts and a rich sauce....I've tried all of them, and while all of them are great, I strongly encourage you to try the tsukemen, if you plan to have only one visit, since that is the speciality here. Some useful information: - the place is quite small, and some queue can be expected; but it moves quickly and the food is worth the wait - there is no halal food available - you can get a beer here, but the choice is very limited - credit cards are not accepted - open hours are weird (11:00 to 14:30, 18:00 to 22:00)More

Small ramen bar in a side street close to Kyōto station. You can order two kinds of ramen an tsukemen ramen, but the taste of the ramen is fantastic. Be prepared to pay cash at a vending machine to order the ramen.

We visited largely as it was close to our hotel and we were tired - however it ended up being one of the highlights of our trip to Kyoto. It is a no-frills place with around 10 seats, the food is delicious and at a...good price. You may have to wait a little bit for a seat but it's worth it.More

I've never had an experience where I was still thinking about the food for several hours after I ate it. Considered going back to the same night for dinner, but decided we were better than that. Wish everyone gets a chance to go and enjoy...the noodles and broth. I got the regular, my wife got the miso, both were amazing.More

At our last night in Kyoto we choosed this restaurant. It was a great choise. It is located at 10 minutes walk from the main station. Inside the local you can see how your plate is prepared. It was the best ramen we taste in...our Japan trip. Also the noodles were very good. Few choices but with the best quality. I suggest this place to everyone.More

They have a short menu (not many different options) but what they cook is excellent, tasty and delicious! It is a very small place and they only have room for 11 people, but you do not way long because people eat and leave. Very peculiar...place, good food and cheap. You can eat for les than 1000¥More
