We decided to try this to compare to the one we always go to in Bangkok. This is a bit different. I think I like the one in Bangkok a bit more. We enjoyed it though.

Had a Miso based Ramen here with their limited time Black pork bun. The service was friendly and quick and the Ramen is on par with the other Ramen chains around Osaka or Tokyo. The limited time porn bun is somewhat of a gimmick as it does not have any special taste or texture. If you are at the Dotonbori... More

Ramen is a true original. Everything is excellent. The pork broth and pork chasu are a true delicacy.

I always always cross the restaurant a lots. It's seems not looks good but I just wanted to try it at least once. It was more than what I was expected the taste. Not great, but it was good:) Actually, dumpling was good!

Chanced upon this small ramen shop while exploring doton buri. Checked trip advisor, saw the reviews, so I decided to try even if we had to queue. It was worth it! The shoyu broth and noodles were average, but I was suprised by the taste of the char siu (meat), really soft melt-in-your-mouth type and quite delicious! Of all the... More

The ramen is chewy and smooth. The thick soup is fragrant and tasty. The char siew meat is the BEST -- it's sweet, tender and the taste simply explode in your mouth when you bite it. We have also ordered a clear soup ramen. It tastes as good. Must try!

We went back to this place because their awesome ramen. First time, it was in Oct 2013. We came across this place and had ramen the one without broth. We went back for that this year, but it was not on the menu. It was not an issue at all since there are other interesting dishes to try. This time,... More

Last year I tried to find this ramen but not success. This year I can find it on tripadvisor. Soup is great and char siu is soft like can melt in your mount.

My friend and I spent 5 nights in Osaka and discovered this place on our second night. The food was so good, we came back for 4 nights in a row. The people working there were so nice, and recognized us each night we came in. They let us put a heart on their map to show where people visit... More
