huge chunks of pork belly filled the bowl, great value. Short wait, but line went quick. Avoid lunch hour rush. Entrance was a little confusing, look for the red fabric and wood and paper doors. Highly recommended. Visited January 2017

This place was just so good in every way. The food- incredibly delicious with fresh ingredients. The atmosphere- the perfect balance of lively and communal enjoyment of the food while still your own bit if privacy to savor every mouthful (and figure out the sloppy chop stick / spoon combo if need be!). The ordering- you do need to order... More

As it wasn't too far from our accomodation, we wandered to Musashi. Lovely deep broth, friendly staff. Easily the best ramen I had on this trip.

I've been to tokyo a few times and this is always my first stop for some Tsukemen Ramen. The broth is rich and flavorful and at the end of your meal you can add plain broth and drink it up. The tonkatsu ramen is rich and tastes somewhat like the chinese/vietnames pork and eggs stew dish. The line has gotten... More

This place was great and cheap, under ¥2000 for both of our meals and drinks. The soup, noodles and pork were fantastic and how they get the egg yolk so thick is beyond me. The electronic menu made ordering easy and although the chefs didn't speak English the other patrons were kind enough to help translate. There aren't many seats... More

Ramen bar with electronic English menu that makes very easy to order. Staff is very friendly, despite the language burden. The Shoyu Ramen is amazingly tasteful, and the kakuni is so tender that melts in your mouth. It was so good that we repeated during our short stay in Tokyo

Get ready to stand in line, get your hot bowl of to die for ramen and slurp away. Pure heaven, there are a ton of noodle places but this one is one of the best in town. I luckily got some help from a local couple while i was getting my ticket in line, was in all japanese so they... More

Tip: The ramen serving is quite huge. Do not add on anymore rice sets. Instead, consider add-on some finger foods or fried chicken as appetizers, while you enjoy the view of the chefs preparing your ramen!

Have visited this little establishment twice now, if there is a line, it moves very quickly. We did not mind being slightly rushed for our meal, because it's just that good that you want to get it all in quickly anyway. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for spectacular pork in a lovely broth.

Thank Cale W
