This place a does a great ramen! You get to select the exact levels of flavour and spice which I loved. I've tried a few around Japan and believe they're worth the line up... yes there's always a queue.

Having visited the one in Shinjuku, Tokyo and had an amazing pork ramen experience, I was delighted to see one in Kyoto. All their ramen noodles are handmade, and their tonkotsu broth made the traditional way. I love the fact that these places are so...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.

Waited 35 minutes but I would do it again. The style is so unusual and interesting and the food is excellent. Definitely recommended

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.
