Fantastic ramen. Watched the man in the window stretch and knead the noodles to order. Broths are all very different and super tasty. I personally loved the spicy tantan-men and my wife liked the miso broth and the bamboo shoot broth. They have an English menu too!

My wife is Japanese. We live in Australia, but visit Japan every year and always eat at Bazoku at least once while we are in Asakusa, Tokyo. I guarantee you will not find better tan tan men anywhere on this planet.

Last reviewed in April 2013. My wife (who is Japanese, but now resides in Australia) and I return here every year. It never changes. DON'T expect any service. DON'T expect an Enlglish menu . DO expect the best tan tan men you are likely to have in your life.

My wife is Japanese and lived in Asakusa for 7 years. This was her favourite local ramen noodle house and now it is mine too. It's a small "no-frills" eatery,... More

My wife is Japanese and lived in Asakusa for 7 years. This was her favourite local ramen noodle house and now it is mine too. It's a small "no-frills" eatery, but one which oozes character: from the man behind glass making fresh noodles to the old lady who serves the food.If you want to experience fresh fast food Japanese style...

After a long morning of walking around and seeing the temple in the area we were hungry for lunch. Tried to find an eel place to no luck and saw this place on a recommendation list. Don't speak much Japanese, so guessed it was right based on the man in the window pounding out handmade noodles. The staff doesn't speak... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
