Definitely must TRY! And come back. Worth the wait, even at 11 am lines forming, with locals. I hope they open more branches. The pork melts in your mouth.

Delicious food!!! We were lucky and had no wait. Staff are friendly and the place had a great atmosphere considering how small it is. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood.

Found this place through lots of foreign blogs. They mainly serve two styles of ramen, Tonkatsun and Tsukemen. We didn’t know what Tsukemen was so we just ordered both. The waitstaff was very helpful to us non-Japanese speakers and the ramen ordering machine had English. Tsukemen was out of this world! Tonkatsu was spectacular also. We’ve already been back for seconds of the Tsukemen. The line moves quickly, don’t let it stop you!

The best Ramen I had in Japan. Whoa! The line was about 10min long and worth the wait. By the time we left, it was much longer, and would still be worth the wait. The staff is electric and hospitable. Amazing Ramen AND service?? You can’t beat that w a baseball bat!!

Don't be intimidated by the queue, it moves surprisingly quickly and is definitely worth the wait!
Just make sure to go inside first to get your ticket from the machine inside before joining the queue outside in the cold!
We had both tonkotsu ramen and tsukemen. Ramen broth is rich and delicious, tsukemen noodles are lovely chewy texture and accompanying broth is peppery and flavoursome
If you get tsukemen when you have finished with your noodles, give your broth bowl back to them and they will add some water and rice for you to finish off the tasty broth, enjoy!
