My friends and I were traveling through Japan and were told to try this place. Fantastic ramen, rich broth with tender meat. All washed down with a draft beer. Great service and clean, bright dining area. Would go again.

I've had better but the ramen here is quite good. I hear that it gets busy sometimes but it wasnt when I was there. There might be a couple of better options in the area, however. I will say that they will put more noodles...More
