The best ramen we got in Japan after a 3 weeks trip!! A piece of advice: don't go too hard with the spicy level (but you can always choose "not spicy" if you are not into spicy food, so do not worry!!).

This was the best ramen in had in Tokyo. The owners were amazing and despite not being able to speak Japanese, they helped us navigate ordering on the vending machine (since this was our first time order from the machine). Most of the items are in English and Japanese on the menu. The interior has a great look and vibe... More

My husband and I heard this place was good but the flavor of the broth blew our minds. Went there multiple times during our stay in Tokyo!!

I have been in Japan for two weeks now and Ramen is my favourite meal and this place was honestly the best. The pork melts in your mouth and the spices are delicious.

This was our first and last meal in Japan over 2 weeks, because it has the best ramen! Big juicy pieces of pork, much larger then any other place. The broth tastes amazing. I found mild chilli level good for someone who doesn't like much chilli

We spent a week in Tokyo and Kyoto and this was definitely our favorite ramen. Two spice scales: chili (burning) and Sichuan (numbing). The spice levels aren’t actually that aggressive (at least up to medium) so don’t feel obligated to get lower than you might normally.

So so so very tasty and in a great area to wander round for a drink afterward. We went for medium medium and low low which suited us both. The best thing was the pork - thickest slices we have had in any ramen shop and absolutely melt in the mouth. A must go!

Had a really good, spicy Sichuan pepper ramen here, with varying spice levels depending on your tolerance. Definitely worth a visit especially during a cold or wet day.

This place is a must do in Tokyo. The ramen was amazing. We ordered medium spice and it was perfect - noodles themselves were slightly spicy, and the broth was more so. Totally addicting! We arrived and there was a short line. When you are looking at the restaurant, look right and go through the small curtain to the vending... More

Oh my word this place is good! Best ramen I have ever had! Having said that, it ruined my entire next day due to chilli related abdominal pain. None of this is the restaurants fault at all of course. There are multiple levels of heat you can choose from and being a bit of a chilli head I opted for... More
