Went here on a whim, got worried because of the lack of a queue but there was actually a short queue of 3 people inside. It's awesome to watch your dish being put together and the price is really reasonable for the quality of ramen....More

Tasty, no-fuss ramen. The pork is excellent because it's thick slices of melt-in-your mouth pork belly - I would recommend ordering an extra piece and making sure you stir briskly to really release the yummy meat flavours into the broth. Ordered from a vending machine...More

Very unique with think pork belly meat and soy sauced egg. Worth trying once. Will probably not go back again. Very long queue even I went there after 9pm.

There are only two type, dry and soup ramen. The broth is amazing, love the flat noodle they use. The pork belly wasn't anything special to me, but it is delicious.

There is a line to enter this place, but trust when I say it is worth it. You place your order through a machine, which is available in English. The broth was light and rich with flavor. A nice soft boil egg and thick piece...More

They only serve ramen with pork belly pieces but if you asked them they could do it without. However the broth may still have pork or chicken stock. It is a Tokyo shoyu style broth which is often made with chicken or pork... More
By any chance does anyone know the noodles they use, we are going to Japan in November and my Mom has Celiac. Just was wondering if they have a gluten free option before we make an order from the machine. Thank you.
