    😍The BEST ramen chain ever!!😍Vending machine to place order. Customize your bowl of ramen; noodle texture, spicy level,condiments.. Enjoy in own private booth. So yummy🐽 but be prepared to queue 😨

    After buying food tickets and while waiting to be seated, you'll receive a form to complete. Highly recommend strongest and richest options for your broth! Green tea tofu was also bomb. Awesome/10
  • Reed M.
    Fantastic ramen, totally customizable -- choose broth strength, oil, onions, garlic, pork (or none), peppers, and noodle firmness. Broth is NOT super pork flavor, really lets everything else shine 😋

    The ramen here was soooo good and it's great that you can customize it to your own taste. You choose your ramen and toppings, pay at the machine, and then fill out a form about the broth.

    Some quality ramen. Unique personal experience. Shibuya one is 24hrs so convenient anytime. Get a ticket then go to a table & press the button for instant service. Popular ramen eat in Japan

    love that you can customise your ramen preferences! double chilli, rich broth, medium flavor, thick onions, one shio tamago, mushrooms and firm noodles, kudasai!

    Great place, a bit hard to find. Buy your ticket from the machine downstairs and eat away. Delicious ramen served in a booth. Don't take photos or they will shut your screen!

    Customized ramen! You can customize everything from the contents of the ramen, spicyness, flavor, oilyness, firmness of the noodles type of green onionband even go for a second serving of noodles!
  • Lindsay B.
    Absolute best Ramen I've ever had! Get the firm noodles and then everything else they recommend. Order at vending machine then sit alone. WOW!

    This place is very efficient in getting you in and out. Order using the machine and get seated in a stall. Best Ramen I've ever had.

    Quick booth ramen always prepared just the way you want. Customize broth flavoring, oil, garlic, leek, and spice levels with sheets.

    Great ramen with lots of customization. If you go over a 2 in spice I believe they change up the spice a bit, worth a try.

    Customize everything about your ramen - the contents, noodle texture, broth, spice level, etc. Everything was perfect.

    Always my first stop when in Tokyo, even though there's always a line, super delicious and worth the wait.

    This is like, quality baseline for Tonkotsu. Simple, well-executed, with loads of flavor, and the ability to custom order a few things. Loved it.

    Very unique place. Eating ramen at the separately sectioned bar table and ordering without a word or eye contact but written paper will be funny experience.
  • Richard J.
    Richard JhangApril 16, 2016
    Amazing. You must visit this place if you even remotely enjoy a nice bowl of ramen. Open 24/7 and always quite busy but peaceful inside.

    Great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Be sure to drink up the soup since it has collagen, great for the health and skin!

    Very unique experience of eating ramen. Go for the extreme level for the richness of the soup. 790 yen for a bowl of delicious ramen
  • Heston S.

    Ramen, has some kind of chilli with different level of spiciness. You can also customize the softness of noodle, garlic level, thickness of soup!

    You order from a vending machine, but the food is made and served by people. Weird, fun, delicious!
  • Jeffrey K.
    There are a bunch of these all over. Unique experience - open 24 hours and you'll eat by yourself in a booth with no face-to-face interactions. Very Japanese.

    Best to eat alone and slurp your loudest! Make sure to add egg in your ramen! 👌🏾
  • Ishan C.
    Expect lines even late at night, but the queue moves quickly. Don't be afraid of adding spice - it's quite ok up to level 2.
  • Erick K.
    Erick KjellevoldSeptember 24, 2016
    Seriously good ramen. You can customize the fullness/spicyness of your broth. Also, it's possible to order a second portion of noodles. Expect a queue.

    It's a chain, but it's flavors are amazing. My tip: double on the pork, add an egg and ask everything medium.

    Not bad for Tonkotsu Ramen. Good taste and high level of customization. But be prepared to queue for a VERY LONG TIME.

    Very average ramen, with huge hype to it. Without waiting would be ok, but because of the huge line it's not worth it.

    맛은 보장!! 진득한 국물이 일품! 독서실같이 1인자리체계임. 옆자리와 칸막이가 있고 앞에도 막혀있는데 아랫부분만 뚫려있어 거기서 주문도 하고 라멘도 받고함! 주문방법이 멘붕 우선 문을 열고 들어가자마자있는 자판기에서 구매! 그리고 자리배치를 기다리면서 매운정도 면발 부드럽게 등등을 체크해야함 (한국말로 적혀있음) 비밀소스 3를 추천! 반숙계란 추가

    자판기로 주문하고 그것과 라면 주문서(라던가 원하는대로 가능, 한국어 있음)를 주면 됩니다. 독서실처럼 칸막이가 전부 나뉘어있답니다.
