Fast wait time for a family of 3 plus (including a 3 year old) and 1 baby. I also saw them make room for a party of 8 in no time.

Vending machine in front, takes credit cards which was a huge plus for us on our last night in Japan and no more yen cash.

Food was great, the meat is pretty thick and large. And the amount of noodles is pretty stellar. Rice bowl with pork belly for 350 yen is a killer deal. Tasty too!

Would come back definitely. Everyone was nice.

Only complaint is that it felt less connected to a singular chef or person, and more like a machine that pumped out delicious food fast for the people.


The weather outside in Kyoto was so cold, eating hot ramen noodles was really great idea.. When I arrived, there was a short queue up line. First of all, i had to choose the food and pay for it through a machine, then wait outside with the ticket. In turn, the shop owner invited me to come inside. The shop had a very convenient place to hang clothes and store bags. I didn't think a portion of noodles here would be so big. I chose pork ramen. The broth was wonderful, suitable for my taste. The pork was tender and very yummy. I actually ate it all up, partly because I was starving, partly because the food was so great.


Very atmospheric place, very nice lady waitress invited us inside and showed the table. There is a machine at the entrance where you can order very quickly. Ramen very good, aromatic. Fast service, highly recommended


Translated from Japanese:

This is where I started eating out this year. I love Tsukemen so much that I have eaten it many times. I usually go to the main store, but it was crowded so I went to the Shijo store. Standard tsukemen. It's a thick soup, but I don't get tired of it...


Translated from Japanese:

I came here because I wanted to eat tsukemen on the way back from Umeyu. There was a bit of a line, but I got in right away. My first impression was that it was Tsujita Inspired, based on the way it was eaten and the in-store BGM. When I ate it, I liked it better than Tsujita! noodles...


Translated from Japanese:

I usually get the rich seafood tsukemen, but this time I got the ramen with the aroma of dried sardines, which is one of the two most popular dishes. It really has a strong aroma of dried sardines, and although it is refreshing, it has a strong flavor. When is Yuba, a standard side menu...
