I kind of know it's going to be big, but still surprised by the size. I believe it tasted very good but all I can remember is how full I am. Be prepared, make sure you are super hungry before you step in. I arrived at 4:50 and there were 20 more than peoples in the line already. Somehow most people managed to finish it, even girls. There were 2 ladies in the line before me, and I saw them finish whole thing, even the soup. This is the very first time that I couldn't finish a ramen....


Wonderful ramen to eat! The size was normal that was not normal to the regular bowl of ramen elsewhere! I had trouble moving the bowl with both hands from counter top to my table top! Could hardly see the ramen with all the pork and bean sprouts on top. Soup was tasty not salty or greasy. Ramen was the thicker one and chewy just to me and my wife’s liking. Marinated pork and Char Siu were tender and tasteful. We couldn’t get in first night at 10:00pm, they were sold out. Went back next evening and was lucky not needing to wait long. Definitely amount the best ramen shops in Ikebukuro.


The ramen is delicious but can be a bit heavy on the stomach. Very easy to order with a ticket machine and fairly quick to eat despite seeing a long line. (I'd say the average wait was about 10 minutes and that was with a line of about 5 people in front)
