“Good value”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

If you want to "dine" on ramen (the main event) with additional side dishes like karaage, salad, beef (read tripe) in ponzu sauce, etc with cocktails on a budget (Yen2,000per person incld drinks), in nice ambiance with good service, then this is the place.
I would recommend this restaurant and may revisit. But I agree with an earlier reviewer that it is rather dubious to rank this #1 restaurant in Kyoto. Without busting the bank, I would rank some other restaurants above this.

“Very good ramen at a very good price”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

It's all a matter of taste, but as Miso Ramen goes, this place is very good. My favorite Miso ramen is still found in Sapporo, but the burnt Miso Ramen at Gogyo is rich and full of flavor, and quite different from your standard, Miso Ramen; thus, if you're a Ramen connoisseur, you should definitely try this place out while in Kyoto.

“Very friendly”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We went here based on the reviews at about 7pm. It is a very popular place and we sat in the front and watched the food being cooked. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we were able to choose from what we could see being cooked. There is an English menu but not everything is on that version as there is a special Japanese menu.

Two of our choices were out by the time we ordered and the food is a little greasy.

“different style - superb ramen”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I came to Japan TO TRY ALL THE RAMEN. Well, more than that, but I love ramen, ok?

I'd never heard of burnt/roasted miso ramen before, but this place was well rated. The ramen itself was amazing. The staff was super friendly and helpful too. I went at lunch and paid 850 yen only. I am not sure if that's low, but it's lower than the $10-$25 price range listed for this place on tripadvisor.

The restaurant is on a side street from another side street that is a food market with shopping too. This whole area is really cool to see and adjacent to Gion, so I would check it out.
