Good ramen is what’s missing in Europe. This restaurant brings it to Barcelona. I much enjoyed the spicy miso ramen. Quick turn over, friendly staff and a cool vibe is what you can expect from this place. 10 out of 10 will come again!

Amazing ramen in such a lovely part of Barcelona. Gyoza were amazing and definitely recommend to start. Really relaxed and laid back so it was easy to feel comfortable. Staff were very friendly and had amazing English. 100% would recommend.

Seriously, you can't compare ramen in Japan, but even the ramen restaurants in Madrid are much better than this restaurant. The skin of Gyoza wasn't pan fried enough; the spicy miso ramen wasn't spicy at all. Also, the noodle itself ruined the whole ramen! The...More

The atmosphere is cool and relaxed. The place is a cave looking like a metro station with locals and tourists. Good is just HEAVEN: we tried the miso ramen and the kimchi. A PLEASURE. Plus good prices and smiley staff. I will surely return.

Good food, generous portion, good value. The spicy ramen where great, not too spicy. Don't expect to much, but have a good dinner in a friendly environment. I loved it.
