Fun and delicious. Good group activity. Everyone gets a prize No pork and chicken is ok but homemade noodles were delicious.

The experience was the best part of this place (oh and the fried rice). Ramen was just average - the lack of meat was the most disappointing. Someone ordered karaage next to us which looked amazing. But Yeah, ramen could have been better.

The flames were impressive but left an acrid metallic flavour in the ramen. Obviously a well run establishment but if you want good tasting ramen go elsewhere!

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
