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.

The ramen is chewy and the broth is rich with tontaksu taste. Eat with chili sprout will make the ramen more delicious.

I got hooked on ramen in Japan, and this has to be one of the best in the city! I could eat it everyday! Quick, affordable and perfectly done in one of the cleanest kitchens I've seen. Friendly staff too.

This is my most favorite ramen restaurant in Takadanobaba. Not only it is very delicious, but also the atomosphere of restaurant is very clean and trendy for a ramen restaurant. This ramen is from originally from Fukuoka and that's where ramen is very famous.

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 in your bowl for really cheap. Prices in general are average.
