Line moves fast so don't be afraid to queue up! You can order with the machine but you might need some Japanese to converse with the staff (who asked about which type of noodles we wanted)

Great tsukemen, make sure to add chashu (pork) if you want it as it doesn't come in what looks like the default bowl option!


You order while in line on their vending machine by the door, cash only. The tsukemen is better than any tsukemen I’ve had in NYC, the broth is thick and flavorful. The noodles were also fantastic. Casual and adheres to the KISS principle. They were playing a mix of country and top hits of the US


Hands down one of the best tsukemen we've ever had in Tokyo. Fish-based dipping noodles that are thick with awesome bite. Not too chewy but just enough to be a pleasure to eat.

We have a favorite tsukemen place that's very similar near where we live and this place is undoubtedly better. Recommended by my wife's brother, really glad we checked it out the next time we were in Shibuya.

As the noodles are awesome, I'd recommend upgrading for extra noodles (oomori) for JPY 50. Well worth it. They'll ask you to pick from two noodle types. They'll recommend the one on the right called daihyoumen, make sure you go for that.

The dipping soup base comes with really good chashu pork slices as well as menma (bamboo shoots). I'd also get an egg as well which was pretty good. The soup itself is thick with a strong fish base and a noticeable lemon zest to cut through it a bit.

Price is reasonable for the high quality and being near to the center of Shibuya.

If you're any kind of Japanese noodle fan and looking for a local favorite, definitely try this place. You may need to wait outside around peak times, it was full when we first arrived on a rainy day.
