If you do not like fish or fish based food, you should skip this ramen restaurant. The ramen broth here very fish based and quite salty. It's pretty strong but it's also very special. With around 12 seats (and tight one!) and you need to...More

It’s a groovy “restaurant”, hidden up a flight of steep stairs, with lovely staff. However, if fishy broth isn’t your thing, then I’d give it a miss - there was a friendly sardine on top too. Fish lover: Go here So-so fish lover: Probably not...More

A strong-taste broth style ramen that tastes nothing like others i tried before. Broth made from sardines gives it a very unique taste. Noodles are on the thick side and it is great. The shop is small and has a lot of character. A waiter...More

Just going to this restaurant is special. If you want to experience an atheistic Japanese restaurant that’s very tourist friendly this is the place to go. The Ramen was not too fishy as I’ve read in previous reviews. It was the best Ramen experience I...More

The ramen is phenomenal. Huge dish, the noodles are fantastic, and just the right texture and consistency but the broth is just... I was speechless. If you don't like fishy flavor, this might be a bit hard to swallow, but if you do - You...More

We visited here on our last night and got there about 11:15pm. Queued for about 45 minutes but it was well worth the wait. Small place - about 10 seats I'd say. Small but cosy! Ramen is fish based stock which was different to others...More

You should know: The ramen broth here is fish based so it's a somewhat saltier experience that is uniquely different from tonkatsu, shoyu, or miso based broths. The place is small with proportionally small seating (no room to lean back on your barstool here!) You...More
