With 12 people in front of me, I thought it would be about a 30 min. wait queuing at 9:00pm. It turned out to be an hour. They have a push button machine to select your dishes and then take your stub to prepare it while you wait (to decrease the wait time). I had the pork intestine tsukemen and the broth was delicious. Reserved with rice to make it into a porridge but I would've preferred more rice to make it even heartier.

It fulfilled the one hour mystery but not sure if I would wait in line for so long again. One of the better ramen experiences I had in Japan. Staff were all very busy doing something every minute from cooking noodles, heating broth, washing dishes, pulling out produce, etc. You can tell being busy is in their blood.

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.
