We lived this place. We found this on TripAdvisor and this was our first dinner in Japan. We had to wait in line for 15 to 20 minutes but it was well worth the wait. By examinining the local Japanse guests and staff we figured out how to survive our first ramen experience. You order your food with a machine.... More

You just have to try it. Amazing ramen. People waiting in long line for this. It really worth the wait, the price, everything. A must try

Went here on a whim, got worried because of the lack of a queue but there was actually a short queue of 3 people inside. It's awesome to watch your dish being put together and the price is really reasonable for the quality of ramen. We went yesterday and we'll be going back tomorrow.

Tasty, no-fuss ramen. The pork is excellent because it's thick slices of melt-in-your mouth pork belly - I would recommend ordering an extra piece and making sure you stir briskly to really release the yummy meat flavours into the broth. Ordered from a vending machine and served quickly. Not the place to go for a big sit down family feast... More

The restaurant is in a thriving business area of Tokyo but its in a small alley ( so glad to be travelling with google maps! Hehe). We came right when the lunch hour rush was waning so there was still a waiting line (this place probably sits around less than 20) but only for about 15 minutes. You pick your... More

Very unique with think pork belly meat and soy sauced egg. Worth trying once. Will probably not go back again. Very long queue even I went there after 9pm.

It took me a while to find the place since there was no English signage for the restaurant, but fortunately I recognized the kanji characters for the name of the restaurant. The vending machine for ordering was simple to use with the option of changing the language to English and other languages too, if you need to. I arrived here... More

There are only two type, dry and soup ramen. The broth is amazing, love the flat noodle they use. The pork belly wasn't anything special to me, but it is delicious.

There is a line to enter this place, but trust when I say it is worth it. You place your order through a machine, which is available in English. The broth was light and rich with flavor. A nice soft boil egg and thick piece of pork was the perfect finishing piece to this Ramen. This was really a yummy... More

We had been fans of Menya in Honolulu, so we just had to go and try the flagship in Shinjuku. The place is counter style ramen shop with vending machine at the front where you order and pay your meal (it's super simple, with images, trust me, you can't get it wrong). They offer noodles in small or large sizes... More
