First off. It opens at 11. We made the mistake of arriving at 11. We were not seated until 1:15. So we (3 people) waited for 2 hours to be seated. That being said, there is only 11 places for seating inside. Once you make the line and are able to order it’s best to know what you want beforehand. Just google and YouTube suggestions. There aren’t many options but when you are being rushed a little to order you can get confused.
Once seated the appetizers, if you ordered any, come out first. We ordered chicken gyoza and they were outstanding, I wished we ordered 2 orders - only 3 pieces come out. I tried the tantan ramen, one of had the soy ramen and the other has the spicy one. They are each good for their own reasons. Tantan is rich and creamier, the soy was more mild on all flavors and a very “clear” broth, the spicy was just that, spicy but not as creamy as the tantan. All were very very good.


My favorite ramen in all Japan. I’ve tried another Michelin Star ramen in Tokyo, but it wasn’t as good as Nakiryu. Most ramens I’ve had in Japan were salty, but only Nakiryu passed my sodium tolerance limit. A long wait is typical, but it’s well worth it. Wear warm clothes and shoes when it’s cold outside. I also like that they have other options other than ramen on their menu, but it’s also the very reason the line staggers and for causing the slow turnaround. I’ll return every time I’m back in Tokyo.


The ramen is absolutely amazing. Started queueing at 11am and only reach our turn around 2pm++. The broth is really nice and wanton is a must order! Definitely worth the wait. But do check their twitter(X) account before going there as they may close suddenly.
