This place is located under a walkway bridge. They operates at lunch & dinner time. So be aware of their operating time.

Upon arrival, punch your order in a machine and pass the ticket to the service man. They will attend to your order and help to your seating. Waiting time is not long. You will be served with delicious bowl of warm & spicy Ramen in no time.

There is a comfortable prayer room inside. There is chance that you may need to queue outside in cold. So bring necessary clothing.

The staffs are very friendly and attentive.

This was first visit to Kyoto and decided to visit the restaurant for dinner. The place opens for dinner from 1800-2200. I was there at 1740 and there was already a queue forming. The place only fits about 15 persons and it will be good for you to make a reservation before visiting to avoid long waiting time outside the restaurant.
Please prepare small notes when visiting as you need to make your orders via a vending/ticketing machine.
The food tasted really nice and I didn't regret braving the cold to walk to the restaurant from my hotel. It is located along Shiokoji Dori - about 950m away from Kyoto Station - just use Google Map to get there.

After i read all the good reviews about this restaurant i decided to try their Ramen and i was not deceived. It is a busy little restaurant but food is really great , tried the Chicken Ramen and wanted to get an other one but there was a long line up to order, the chicken was a signature too, crispy and juicy from inside . Loved the place.

visited this resto 2 times in September 2017 (sorry for delay review). we ordered same meals to check the consistency ;-) I came up with the decision that their chicken karage is great (no wonder its the first "empty" on the vending machine), salted ramen was ok. chicken (or beef I forgot) rice was so so...

First place we went to eat in Kyoto. members in our party who eat regular ramen were very impressed with how good their broth and overall food quality is.
Definitely going back to this place when we are in Kyoto again.
Simply awesome!
value is excellent too.
we had ramen, karage, eggs and rice with bonito flakes.
keep up the good work guys.

also they have a prayer room in the premises which I thought was awesome.
