Cheap version of private dining, literally each person has their own private "booth" so you can't see your neighbours. It's a small place but patrons eat quickly since it's not very comfortably seated. The fun part is in filling up the form on the choices and ingredients for your noodles. The soup is absolutely delicious that I ordered an additional... More

Arrived early so we didn't have to wait in line. Bought our ticket easily, sat on our little seat and were eating ramen in no time at all. Ramen was sensational; we got to choose level of hotness, amount of garlic and onion so it was just right! Would eat there again in a heartbeat.

Unbelievable ramen that uses the thinner kind of noodle similar to wanton noodle of hong Kong or singapore! You buy your ticket of the food first through the machine, then u wait to be seated. Request for english before you sit so that you can fill up a slip of paper to put in your request for your firmness of... More

It was quite a walk from the Sakae Subway station, and a little difficult to find the location despite that I was even using Google map for the directions. There were only 20 seats in the restaurant. The spaces were tight, especially when you come with lots of clothing in the winter. You pay using the vending machine and order... More

It was our first, ordering and paying for ramen thru a vendo. I made the fortunate mistake of ordering extra noodles (since I thought paying more meant a bigger bowl). Even with the lack of English instructions, I eventually figured out how to order the extra noodles. The ramen itself was heavenly and worth every yen. This was an awesome... More

Definitely my favourite chain of Ramen. Love the efficiency of buying the ticket at the machine and ability to choose the flavour and strength of the soup base

The restaurant is like a fast food style ramen shop, queue up outside and choose and pay for your food at a automated kiosk at the entrance. There are about 20 seats and queue can get long at times. HOWEVER, this is definitely worth the wait! The ramen was fabulous and the broth was delicious! The soup is of natural... More

The Ramen is so good and easy to order, really impressed by the way of design in the blocks for single customer. The waiters are kind and willing to serve at their best. But should decide the time to arrive, at the lunch and dinner times will be crowded and have to wait for long.

This is a salary man style ramen joint. Very enjoyable acceptable ramen. Go in, eat, get out. The process is fairly simple. First go to the vending machine at the door and buy your ramen and sides (there is only one flavour of ramen, but you can get a noodle top up). Second, find a seat. Effectively one person stalls,...
