Excellent ramen, and even better experience. It is a 24-hour place. You can customize it to your taste. This place is something that my 15 year old keeps raving to everyone about his trip to Japan. Try the private booth. So much fun. It comes...More

Loved the ramen here, also really enjoyed the experience and being able to customise my meal. The menu slips were also available in English, so it was easy to order.

I tried it because I want to experience the seating arrangement. It is a wonderful way of learning japanese cultures of doing things fast and practical. The food is good and very cheap.

The absolute best Ramen. Your dish can be specified to your needs. I even ordered extra meat. This was such an amazing experience, I cannot wait to have more. Be prepared to wait in a line, although it moves quick.

The whole experience is simply fantastic. They have an interesting dining concept and the ramen and soup is very delicious! No queue at the Kyoto outlet but saw a super Long queue at the Osaka-Dontobori outlet. A must try if you are in Japan.

First time here. Paying for your food at a vending machine,and being seated in the equivalent of a one person was a interesting experience for my first trip to Japan. But the tonkatsu ramen is quite tasty! I would definitely eat here again.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
