I recently visited Ramen Yamaguchi and I must say, it was an absolute delight! The ramen was delicious, with flavors that left me wanting more. Even though there was a slight queue, it moved quickly, and the wait was definitely worth it. The staff were friendly and attentive, adding to the overall positive experience. Highly recommended for any ramen enthusiast!


Chicken noodle tastes very good, not oily as all, which I like it very much. The pork is very tender and it tastes like being slow cooked and smoked. Strongly recommended this place.


They do not mess around when they say "large" for their portion sizes!

I got the dipping noodles (tsukemen) and it came with enough noodles easily for 2-3 people. That said, I finished them all because they were that good! My wife got the normal chicken ramen, and between the two I favored the more savory, umami dipping broth. It also came with a citrusy spicy sauce that was fantastic.

It's a traditional ramen bar with a vending ordering system, so you can be in and out quickly. Be warned it is small, maybe 15 people can fit at once. So a larger group or family may need to wait or sit separately at the bar.
