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
