We got in within about 10 minutes and had a very fun and tasty experience. The booths and set up is unique and fun. Our kids enjoyed it and we enjoyed the taste. We would go again.

It lives up to all the hype. The taste is wonderful and the atmosphere is fantastic. You enjoy the delicious ramen in individual stalls which is perfect when slurping noodles. This way your ramen doesn’t splash on an unknown patron. You can extend the stalls...More

Not being a huge noodle fan, this was my first experience of ramen. It was so good that I insisted we went back before leaving Tokyo. You pay for the noodles at the front from a little type of vending machine and bring your tickets...More

I don't think so. I went to their website and it only says the soup is from the pork-based broth. If you are allergic to any dairy products, I highly recommend you to check with them before eating them. It is more safe!
