We went here our first night in Japan, after reading a recommendation in Lonely Planet. It is a lovely, tiny little spot nestled in amongst equally tiny bars. There is a very nondescript door (so you may think you are at the wrong place). Go through, up some narrow, steep stairs and select your ramen of choice from the machine.... More

We came on a Saturday evening and got in after a short wait as it is a tiny place. We ordered the standard ramen, which is sardines based. It was very tasty and the portions are huge, but it was super salty - we both had to drink gallons of water that night (it had that msg feel but cannot... More

It's different from other ramen I ate. Soup is fishy and thick but a little bit salty. 24 hr service. Staff is so nice.

This place seems really overhyped - I guess people like it for the atmosphere but there are plenty of better options for a good bowl of ramen

Came here Sunday morning and there was no line. Outside looks deceiving, but go through their doors, up those steps and taste their tasty ramen. Recommended.

Waiting half an hour in front of the restaurant was really worth it. What a delicious ramen! The food was really tastful and fresh. The restaurant is very small; it's just a bar with a couple of bar chairs which makes the atmosphere in the restaurant cosy and nice.

This was our first meal in Japan, Lined up for 15minutes but line moved fast. After walking up the stairs paid and ordered on the machine with cash. One meal was enough to share. More tourists than locals though but this meant they understood my English.
