Great ramen! First you make order via machine and then you choose type of ramen you want on paper (they have English one). You can choose richness of flavor, quantity of garlic and spices, softness of noodles, etc. Also, it is cheap. Basic ramen without toppings is around 800¥. The only thing: it's a bar counter type table. So it's... More

Unique experience! First you order from the machine > take a seat (self seating in a booth) > select preference for noodles etc (they have English instructions but you'll need to ask for it) > once ready, press the bell and the waiter will attend to you from the other side, take your tickets and noodle request. Once done, you... More

Once you first learn how to order the food from the machine right next to the doorway, you enter a long table facing the kitchen. The staff were ever so nice and served excellent ramen. I enjoyed very much the lower fat but richer spiced soup that I ordered.

Cheap version of private dining, literally each person has their own private "booth" so you can't see your neighbours. It's a small place but patrons eat quickly since it's not very comfortably seated. The fun part is in filling up the form on the choices and ingredients for your noodles. The soup is absolutely delicious that I ordered an additional... More

Arrived early so we didn't have to wait in line. Bought our ticket easily, sat on our little seat and were eating ramen in no time at all. Ramen was sensational; we got to choose level of hotness, amount of garlic and onion so it was just right! Would eat there again in a heartbeat.

Unbelievable ramen that uses the thinner kind of noodle similar to wanton noodle of hong Kong or singapore! You buy your ticket of the food first through the machine, then u wait to be seated. Request for english before you sit so that you can fill up a slip of paper to put in your request for your firmness of... More

It was quite a walk from the Sakae Subway station, and a little difficult to find the location despite that I was even using Google map for the directions. There were only 20 seats in the restaurant. The spaces were tight, especially when you come with lots of clothing in the winter. You pay using the vending machine and order... More

It was our first, ordering and paying for ramen thru a vendo. I made the fortunate mistake of ordering extra noodles (since I thought paying more meant a bigger bowl). Even with the lack of English instructions, I eventually figured out how to order the extra noodles. The ramen itself was heavenly and worth every yen. This was an awesome... More

Definitely my favourite chain of Ramen. Love the efficiency of buying the ticket at the machine and ability to choose the flavour and strength of the soup base
