It was my first time at a Ramen place in Japan, and it was great. You order via a machine (which has an English mode). Tip: you select the food you want and then pay; there's no confirmation or "pay now" button. The staff then asks you if you want small/medium/large amount of broth and you wait until there's a seat available before they serve you. The place opens at 11AM, go before 1PM, otherwise you'll be waiting 45-60 minutes for a seat.

The broth was pretty salty but flavorful and the pork was well cooked. Would definitely return again.

We went to a lot of ramen restaurants in Japan but the one here was by far, the best I’ve had. I didn’t realize I would like it so much since it was different from what I’m used to with the thick noodles and fish-based broth. With the meat and egg, it was very well-balanced and left us feeling satisfied. We licked our bowls clean!

This time i took a bowl of ramen and a bowl of tsukemen (the dipping noodle), which was no up to my expectations (just a personal taste) the soup is not that hot so when u dip the noodles inside they never get really hot

The soup is really tasty but a bit too salty for me, good for me that i also order 1 ramen which was as good as last time

Ill be back for more

This must be the best broth with unique fish/salty taste compared with other ramen types. Always visit this play when in japan
