Awesome chinese food in a cute and comfortable store. I was really hungry and ordered shumai, chahan, and the chashu shoyu ramen. Everything tasted delicious and satisfied my cravings - the shumai was tender, chahan was not too oily and packed with flavour, and the shoyu ramen was delicious because of the hand made and cut noodles. I felt the msg amount added was pretty heavy. I like the flavour of msg but the aftertaste lingered for a while after I left. Anyways, next time I would go back for more of their dim sum and to try their kakuni ramen.

A warning to vegetarians, out of the three items listed under the "recommended vegetarian items", two of them are made with katsuobushi dashi (fish stock) and the other must be specified to be made with regular oil instead of lard. Make sure to discuss with the staff - they speak very good English and are very helpful and accomodating. Fried vegetables is the one my dining partner had, and it was delicious.


Super yummy Chinese style, Japanese ramen! I love how the wok-hey is incorporated into the ramen. And the load of veg on it makes me feel so much healthier and satisfied! The fried wontons were perfectly seasoned, and Sesame balls were so delicious! The steamed dumplings were surprisingly good, reminded me of the dumplings my late grandma would use to make. But it would be good if it were most seasoned. Would come back again if I were to ever visit Hakone again! 😊


Most of the restaurants close early around 6pm and Haikara closes at 8pm so we went to have our dinner. It wasn't crowded and we ordered the sets. The fried spring roll and the shumai was pretty normal. The Gyoza was juicy inside and crispy outside while the fried wanton was crispy all over. Love the rice dumpling as it tasted authentic with dried shrimps, pork and mushroom. The noodles no matter was it the half portion or full meat portion were good, seasoned well and paired well with the small flat noodles. The taste of the draft Sapporo was really good here and it was even on happy hours. There's an English menu and the staff speaks a little English. Payable by credit card as well. Would recommend it if you visit hakone.


Delicious food with large portion sizes and affordable pricing! The half size portion of mapo tofu and meatballs (8 pcs) were more than enough for 2 pax. They also have happy hour at dinner time where the beers are ~ 300 yen.


Love it! Me and my friend were hunting for dinner and stumbled upon this gem. We had to wait a while but as we were quite late there wasn't much customers already. The boss was super friendly, and the dishes were super delicious! My favourite was the lemon ramen, which was super refreshing. We had a vegetarian friend with us and I could say the dishes can be cater for vegetarian as well, but not vegan. Would definitely come again!
