i now know why there's always a queue to this little shop. i went early today and managed to get a seat immediately.

i ordered oloong chai which arrived bottled by coca cola! and the jumbo gyoza with pork, garlic, ginger, chives are not to be trivialised - they truly are massive, tasty and cheap for yen 360!

A lovely dinner! Just randomly picked this restaurant but it is surprisingly good. The dumplings are super big n tasty! The noodles are superb! But cash only. Nice experience overall!

A real buzz here, with all types of folk. This is the second Ramen restaurant we've been to in Tokyo. Good beer, the jumbo gyoza are really jumbo (and a bit sloppy) and the broth on my ramen was a bit uninspiring. I hate to say it but neither tasted as good as you get at wagamamas in the uk, but maybe that's just my western tastes. Overall a good experience though.

The name on the door is written Kailaku, but the l and r are interchangeable in Japanese. I had trouble finding it on TripAdvisor to review.

We only had the gyoza and shared a plate of 5 between the 2 of us. They are very large and filling. So yummy! Best I've ever had.

If you like good Ramen and Gyoza this is the place to go..
The ramen is the good old Tokyo Shouyu Ramen... The Gyoza is not just tasty and perfect these bad boys are huge ... I was wondering why they only had 3 on a plate instead of the usual 5 or 6 but when they arrived I figured out why they are more than twice the size of your usual Gyoza.
It's a nice small resistant and looks recently refurbished.
Well worth a visit !
