“Best ramen ever and lives up to its name”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Absolutely heavenly and never had ramen that tasted like this. The broth is so tasty and unique. The signature pork slices are so yum and melty. Since I was a solo traveller, I also ate in a 'personal cubicle' which was such a noble and fun experience. Really lives up to its repuation! Had some difficulty finding the place though.

“Good for late night ramen”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Ramen was good for normal standards but not as good as other places in Tokyo or the Shibuya area. I prefer noodles that are thicker with soup that has more flavor

“The Ramen Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Incredible Ramen , long queue. Visited here a while back with some friends in Japan , the wait was around 40 minutes from the top of the stairs at about midday. Delicious is the only word needed. Such good ramen and worth a visit and the wait if you are a foodie like myself. You could probably find ramen almost as good at plenty of places but i went straight for the king , and wasn't disappointed !

“The Most Delicious Ramen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Went here on November 2015. TripAdvisor's date doesn't go back to that date.

Easy to reach, well-priced, very small place but perfect for one person.
The ramen here is the best ramen I have ever tasted, and I have tried many kinds of ramen.

You can order easily even if you can't read Japanese language.

“Good food, interesting experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

For some reason the staff mistaken my Mexican face with a Japanese one... they gave the form in Japanese and every time I asked: "English" they just said: "no, no".
I figured out how to order, which to make it safe I put all my choices in the middle and asap arrived an amazing bowl of ramen.
Despite the delicious taste, eating in "privacy" was quite an experience.
I love it if i don't need to wait to long to enter.
