“Worth the search!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

It took awhile to find this place - no English signage, no romanji, almost no Kana. We found the area and eliminated every business that wasn't a restaurant - finding a Trip Advisor sticker on the door behind the curtain helped!

The restaurant opens for dinner at 5:30 and people were waiting to get in. As mentioned in other reviews there is a machine out front where you buy tickets for your meal. If you can't read Kanji you may have to throw yourself on the mercy of fellow diners in order not get a meal. We had a fellow advise us to always pick the top left item on the machine - that is the house specialty.

We ordered two bowls of ramen and two beers. There are 10 counter seats, table for two, one for four. You hand your tickets from the machine to the staff and within a minute or two your meal will arrive. The broth here is chicken based, not pork - not too salty, really delicious. Thin ramen noodles, slices of chicken and pork, shredded radish, half an egg, cilantro - oishii! The bowl of ramen was 850yen, and a small beer was 350yen.

“Cheap and very cheerful”

You have to put money in a machine outside in order to get a ticket for your order, and it is all in Japanese... But don't let that put you off, because if you can find someone to help you you won't regret it. Torisoba is my fav.
