You will notice the restaurant with a big dragon signage on top just in the middle of dotombori. It's a decent bowl of ramen, the price is only 600 yen, and wow it's so delicious in simplicity. They serves with kimchi.

First, we bought a meal ticket at the vending machine. We waited for several minutes before we got our seat. The ramen was delicious, and for only 600 yen, it was worth it.

There is nothing to really fault about the ramen - it tastes nice, it's cheap (<$10AUD), the setting is different in a good way (raised platforms with low tables) in the hustle and bustle of Dotonbori - however, it doesn't stand out or taste spectacular to earn more than 3 stars. It is a very popular chain and there are... More

Open air stall with raised seating on grass mats. Buy a ticket from the vending machine in front (900 yen for extra pork) and they will direct you to a table. The noodles had a great texture and they have large bowls of condiments at the counter - crushed garlic, pickled onions and spicy kimchi. Enjoyed this particular bowl to... More

The soup's good, ramen's good and to top it off, the shop offers a free flow of spicy kimchi where you can eat on its own or add on to the soup to increase the flavour. Highly recommended. You have got to try this if you are in Osaka.

Buy a ticket, wait in line, sit at table with tatami seats, enjoy the quite perfect ramen dished out to waiting masses. Popular for a reason.

With only 600 yen, you can get a bowl of ramen with unlimited kimchi. the kimchi tastes good and you can free rice as well. If you are looking for budget food, this restaurant can provide a very fulfilling dinner with low cost. There are two restaurants in dotonbori and one of them offers a larger seating area so no...

The soup is ok but the ramen portion is lesser than usual. There are only two choices, more pork or less pork. There is no half boiled egg (tamago). The side dish kamchi and rice are free. The seat are not comfortable.

What I like about this ramen shop is that it is open 24hrs a day. If you are craving for ramen in the middle of the night, and you're just a walk away from this store, then this is definitely the place you can go to. Compared with other ramen restaurants, I find this ramen on the average in terms... More

I had heard good things about this restaurant and it certainly is located conveniently. It looks impressive with a big dragon sign in the middle of the very busy dotonbori street, but the ramen is subpar and the seating area needs to be better taken care of. There is much better food to be had in Osaka.
