The place is very nice and well furnished. Waiters are kind and fast. The kitchen is exposed, so you can see exactly what the cooks make: it is also fun seeing flames one meter high :D
The food is very good and the price is reasonable: With 3000 yen (about 23 euros) I took a main ramen dish with pork, 5 gyoza (ravioli), 7 fried chicken wings, a draft beer and a cake slice.
Everything was good. Also the neighborhood is very nice.

Excellent value, tasty broth, melting pork, fantastic noodles. Tasty gyoza. definitely worth a visit for a unique take on ramen. Efficient service, English menus.

I've never heard of burnt ramen before until my brother told me! The soup is rich with a slight burnt flavour as you'd expect. It's quite unique - definitely worth a try! After all - where else can you get burnt ramen!

Gogyo has a very unique flavored burnt miso ramen. I consider myself a bit ramen crazy and didn't think twice to come here when I was visiting Kyoto on a day trip. There was a slight wait outside but it moved pretty quickly. The place is very well decorated and comfortable. We also ordered the Tsukemen which I felt was even better than the burnt miso ramen. A bit overrated, but if you are already in the area, give it a try.

The street is nice, quiet and close to Nishiki market.
The place itself is nice and looking how they prepare the ramen is wonderful.
The ramen was wonderful, full od taste and thick enough. The pork and the dumplings were also superb. The best ramen we had in Kyoto.
The price a bit higher than average, dinner for two is around 45 dollars with beer.
