We stumbled upon this place almost by accident, and we were very pleasantly surprised. It is a tiny little restaurant. You sit overlooking the chefs, moving around at a million miles an hour. We had the dumplings to start with, which were great. Then the curry ramen and miso ramen. You can see directly in front of you how it's made. It was really good ramen. The whole place has a really cool atmosphere.

What a great little restaurant! Visited on a Sunday night and the place was packed. There was a little bit of a wait but it wasnt terrible and it was apparent the kitchen was getting a little bogged down in orders but the staff was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere made it worth it. A must stop if youre in the city.

If you want to try real Japanese Ramen noodles you should go to Naruto. I assure Naruto can serve authentic Japanese style Ramen noodles. I recommend Shouyu or Miso soup noodles. They have real Japanese taste and flavor. Also you should try fried dumplings, so called Gyouza. This is also real Japanese style dumpling, totally different from Chinese one. All staff is very brisk and friendly. I love their shop atmosphere, that is real Japanese air. Please enjoy!!!

Went here after dropping our bags at the room following a long bus ride. Their house ramen was filling and plentiful and the staff was friendly enough. I'd gladly go again. Very small place though. Might be better at lunch than dinner if busy. Two meals and two drinks cost $28 before tip.

We ate a late dinner here last month & had a nice time. The place is tiny like almost all ramen shops in Japan so the feeling is very authentic to Japan.
The cooks are all from Japan & again give a nice real Japanese feeling to the place.
The 2 different ramen soups we had were pretty good. The fried rice was my favorite. Made fresh while you watch. The gyoza looked good but was weird. Avoid this maybe. the fried chicken
( Karaage ) is very tasty. Fun shop. Will return late at night when intoxicated!
