Its my second time here, as it is indeed something special to bring a friend to, as you dont get such ramen overseas, even within japan its rare. The classic is the one that comes with extra thick noodles and thick broth. You dip the cold noodles bit by bit into the hot broth, which is rich in seafood umami... More

Let's put it straight - nothing special. And definitely NOT the best ramen either in Japan, or even on the Tokyo ramen street. Believe me - it's my third trip to Japan, and I have been eating ramen in each one. And not once:) borth too thick, noodles too cold, no vegetables added. Overall - three points, and I am... More

Don't waste your time standing in line it isn't worth it. Poor interior and poor taste! There are a lot of decent traditional Japanese restaurants go there

Make sure you come here expecting to wait in line for at least 30 minutes! The hype is real though. The ramen here is on point! Cash only. First time to Tokyo and was recommended his restaurant by my colleague. It is located in the Tokyo train station, where there is a hallway of ramen restraints (aka ramen street). We... More

You don't need to pay insane money to get a great meal in Tokyo. Some of the best restaurants are in the most modest of places, like in an underground train station. If you want the best bowl of ramen in your life, look no further than Rokurinsha. To begin with, Tsukemen(dipping ramen) isn't even my favourite kind of ramen.... More

I dream about this place - how the flavor of of the ramen broth was unlike anything I've ever had before. I ate this for breakfast and late lunch. Why can't we have a place like this in America? Ramen for breakfast? Yes please.

OK, so it's in a train station building and for most westerners that equates to terrible food but in Japan this is not the case. On Ramen Street, basement on the south entrance of Tokyo station is this great restaurant. Always queues, which move quickly so just go with the flow. I ordered their dipping special ramen. Yes you can... More

Rokurinsha is a small spot at the Tokyo station Ramen street which holds the longest queues. It's ramen noodles have a superb broth, dense and tasty (although served too colder for my taste). Service is fast and efficient and the place is open very early morning for breakfast. Good to try.

We had heard it was one of the best places of Tokyo to have ramen so we naturally wanted to try, having visited a couple other great ramen places. So our expectations were set quite high. Finding it was not so incredibly difficult, If you want to know, it's on the B1 floor in Tokyo station. Waiting was also fine... More

Was there at 10am and they were closing. Took the liberty to shop around till 10:45am and regretted. There was a long queue when i returned. Spend about a good 30mins of queue time but its really worth it. Ordered their Special Dip Noodles. The Dipping sauce tasted like very rich Pork Stew added with some sweetness. The noodles alone...
