Even it was 2 pm, they were quite full. Choosing between 600 yen and 900 yen (extra pork) was very easy. The pork was chewable but not that soft. The soup was concentrated and tasty. I doubted to see Kimchi as additional side.

Kinda reminded me of chinese style ramen: simple broth, soft noodles, decent roast pork. Not something worth going back for. There are better ramen places nearby.

I went there in January of this year with my family. The broth was too salty and thick. I went there because this place was famous. I still have no idea why this restaurant is famous. The ordering system is that customers purchase tickets from a vending machine and give the tickets to cook. We bought 3 tickets for 3... More

Had a bowl of good ramen here at Lonely Planet's recommendation - my husband liked it more than I did it, I found it a little on the basic side, but loooooved the marinated green onions, garlic, and kimchi toppings! That makes it worthwhile to me. The roasted pork in it was actually rather good, big meaty pieces unlike some... More

You will notice the restaurant with a big dragon signage on top just in the middle of dotombori. It's a decent bowl of ramen, the price is only 600 yen, and wow it's so delicious in simplicity. They serves with kimchi.

First, we bought a meal ticket at the vending machine. We waited for several minutes before we got our seat. The ramen was delicious, and for only 600 yen, it was worth it.

There is nothing to really fault about the ramen - it tastes nice, it's cheap (<$10AUD), the setting is different in a good way (raised platforms with low tables) in the hustle and bustle of Dotonbori - however, it doesn't stand out or taste spectacular to earn more than 3 stars. It is a very popular chain and there are... More

Open air stall with raised seating on grass mats. Buy a ticket from the vending machine in front (900 yen for extra pork) and they will direct you to a table. The noodles had a great texture and they have large bowls of condiments at the counter - crushed garlic, pickled onions and spicy kimchi. Enjoyed this particular bowl to... More
