Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came here based on my dads recommendation and I can see why he’s been here with every visit to Tokyo. Thankfully we visited out of lunch hours so the line wasn’t particularly long. The broth is rich and flavourful with hints of yuzu and...the noodles are the perfect compliment.More

My first restaurant meal in Japan did not disappoint! Went in the morning and there were not many people in line yet. The machine to place the order was a little confusing (clicked the wrong button and it cleared our order), but the staff helped...us out. We ordered tsukumen, one with ground pork and one with extra chashu pork. The broth was super flavorful, and the noodles have a great texture. I made a mess from all the slurping! I did feel very thirsty and swollen later on from the sodium, but it was worth it. We ended up having it again after finding a branch in Haneda airport for our last meal in Japan.More

We loved this place. A thirty minute wait before the hostess directed us to the machine where we placed our orders and then hopped back in our spot in line. Seating is tight. They give out bibs which is awesome. The noodles are so thick....And the broth is flavorful. We left with full stomachs and grins. So much fun.More

I have been to Japan countless times, but this is the first time I encountered such unacceptable behaviour and a bad attitude from a store clerk. Although the ramen was delicious, my mood to enjoy my meal was seriously affected. Store owners should train their...staff so that they understand that customers should have at least a decent dining experience. 來了日本無數次仍但還是首次遇到如此態度惡劣的店員. 雖然面對著美味的餐食,但心情已被嚴重影響。請店家應好好培訓店員,讓他們明白客人們進店不應有受罪的感覺。More

I really love this tsukemen. The noodle is bit thick, and the soup is deep taste. All balance is perfect! Highly recommended!

Waited for 50 minutes before seated. Wait staff spoke little English when helping us with vending machine was not very helpful. We never pressed any spicy soup but after seated they brought a bowl of spicy soup. I saw our neighbor did not have spicy...soup so I am sure it was wrongly taken to us. But my shy daughter insisted we did not make any fuss, and the wait staff were too hectic and I am sure they would not be very helpful anyway. So we had to skim out all the chilli paste. The noodles were cold and the soup lukewarm. Pork too fatty. The paid ‘extra dish’ was an egg with some canned tuna so you can skip it. Won’t go back and certainly not worth the wait.More

My husband made me line up here for noodles at 10am and we were not disappointed. There is always a queue here but we only had to wait 30minutes. If you come later, the queue will be longer. Once at the head of the queue...the waitress can help you to order the noodles at the machine. There is a button to change it to English. We went for the famous tsukemen. I got regular which was HUGE! Once seated the food comes very quickly. They offer you a bib. Best to use it as dipping noodles can get messy. It was different to the other kinds of noodles we have had before. Very thick noodles in an incredible broth. Well worth the wait and very reasonably priced!More

Try their Tsukemen—utterly unique! The wait looks long, but the line goes pretty fast. This place is unlike anywhere I’ve ever been to in Tokyo.

This was the only restaurant that had a lineup first thing in the morning, so it caught our curiosity and we waited in line for the dipping ramen. It was worth the wait as we were treated to some of the best ramen we've had...on our first day. Prices were great, portions generous and though it was fast casual, service was commendable. Where there is a lineup for food, your changes are pretty good that it will be delicious. Highly recommended.More

This visit I allocated more time to stand in line so I could finally try their ramen. The Saturday lunch crowd was in force as the line made a u turn around the outside of the restaurant. As I got closer one of the staff...signaled me to go ahead and select my meal at the vending machine. 7 rows at the top were the available ramen sets (790-1140 yen) for lunch and dinner. 4 rows in the middle were the breakfast ramen choices and much cheaper (740-940 yen). There were options for large and extra large noodles plus additional toppings. After pushing those buttons and inserting my cash then I received my tickets. I fell back in line until I moved up to “The Head” circle which meant I was the next to be seated. Inside there were table and bar seating. My corner seat had a view into the kitchen. All the seasoning and drinks were right in front. My ramen came out in less than five minutes after I sat down. I opted for the regular portion and it was good enough for me. Nice chewy noodles and rich dipping soup. The char siu was a little fatty for me and the only nit about the meal. I will try to come back for breakfast and see if the line will be shorter.More

Ate here twice for lunch and waited about 45 min each time. When you get close, the line attendant will invite you to order through a ticket machine (had English on the buttons). The service fast and efficient. Ramen was really good. Very filling. The...price is amazing. They are famous for their dipping noodles but I didn't have it.More

Rokurinsha gets a lot of hype and deservedly so. I showed up at 11am on a Friday which of course is near rush hour and the line was around the corner. However, I didn't wait much longer than 15 minutes and you get your food...pretty quickly. At the current level of yen, my meal cost me around 7 dollars and it was about as good as it gets. Good luck getting that kind of value without salmonella in New York. By far the best tsukemen i've ever had, and just a great overall experience. I disagree with the other reviewers about asking for the yuzu water to enhance the broth, it does very little, and if anything, I would ask for more noodles since it's a challenge to finish your soup with the single serving. Definitely worth a visit.More

Really good broth and the noodles are really delicious when accompanied by it! Although there is perpetually a queue even during off peak hours, it would be cleared very fast as the diners are usually very considerate - eat and go. They will not linger...in the shop and would just quickly finish their meals. That’s what I like about the Japanese culture. The only thing is they do not really provide guidance on the self kiosk and I got a little lost on how to use the machine. That said, they still kept the table for us even when we had delayed in getting our order completed. Reasonable price too. Not to be missed when you are at Tokyo station!More

We arrived at 730am, right when they started opening their metal gates and there was already a line! We had two big suitcases and the lady took our bags and used a bike wire lock to secure it. We got the morning dipping noodles for...¥880. It comes with pork and an onsen egg. We ordered a side of spring onions for ¥100. And they close at 930am and will rest before lunch!More

I think you can ask to remove the meat from the ramen, but the dashi is made with pork,so i think they cant change that.

You'll get people queuing up BEFORE it opens. Kinda depends on you definition of huge - it's nowhere as bad as say lining up for Michelin 3 stars ramen, but depending on your luck you could be in line for 45 minutes or so.
