It was my first time in japan, and eat it after a long day of walking, the best ramen EVER. The taste is amazing and the extra pork 🤤

Nothing special about the ramen here but I stopped by here shortly after a round of drinks with some friends. Would go back again and consciously taste the ramen!

During our time at Osaka, we just passed by this restaurant with tatami mat seating and just along the roadside. There was a line of people waiting to be seated so we eventually tried and it was so delicious. The best ramen we ever tasted,...seriously. And at the price point, it is also a value for your money. The thickness of the broth and the thinly sliced pork together with the ramen noodles are just a slice of heaven. Plus they offer unlimited garlic and kimchi so it's really worth it.More

Simple restaurant along busy Dotonbori serving seriously excellent soup ramen. Soup is very good and flavourful, well cooked chahsu with good firm ramen. Free flow sides of kimchi, chives and garlic to add on which really elevates the bowl. Having tried Ichiran, I would prefer...this one. Price also way cheaper. Just excellent.More

The meat was good, the soup was good, the noodles were perfect. The service was incredibly fast. The seats are kind of awkward.

There are only 5 Kinryu Ramen restaurants in the Namba area, and this ramen is able to taste only in Namba. This restaurant is opened A ramen boom is open 1982, the originator of Namba Ramen. hot light pork bone soup and noodles are a...good pairing, the taste can experience only here. A style to sit down on the tatami mat, and to eat is a characteristic here. 金龍ラーメンはなんばエリアに5店舗のみがあり、なんばでしか味わえないラーメンです。 ラーメンブームが来るずっと前1982年から営業しています。 ピリ辛であっさりしたとんこつスープと麺はここでしか味わえない味、癖になります。 畳に座って食べるスタイルもここの特徴です。More

Ramen overall quality 4/10. Meat was overcooked, ramen noodle not so fine. Broth also not up to par. The shop does not look too clean and it kind of smells.

Walked in off the street for a rest from the madness that is Dotonbori at halloween. There was a bit of a queue. 15 min or so, but we'd become accustomed to this in our Japanese travels. The ramen was great. Beautiful pork. Nice flavour...of sesame in the soup. Choice of three additions, garlic, japanese chive, and kimchi. We were not aware that this place was popular when we arrived, but it is easy to see why. Great qualiry and value.More

In my Osaka trip, I tried 4-5 ramen restaurants. I like this as number 1. Soup has sesame oil is great. Noodle is soft and chashu pork is a soft bite. Every thing is the best for me.

Another famous ramen shop that is located in various parts of osaka. again its a self serving restaurant and you are seated on a raised tatami. Their tohkutso soup base is less flavourful compared with Ichiran but I prefer their Chasu pork more. As for...the ramen, I feel that both are equally nice and done perfectly. Portion is are adequate. Kinryu however is priced cheaper than ichiran and there is a free flow of kimchi, garlic and chinese chives, which you can eat separately or add it into the ramen for added taste. Personally I like the classic version without any add on. Try both and decide for yourself!More
