    😍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

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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

    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!

    Best to eat alone and slurp your loudest! Make sure to add egg in your ramen! 👌🏾

    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.

    Love the option to customize the ramen. Went a little crazy with the flavor my first time here. The broth was bursting with flavor.

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

    Be prepared to wait for quite a bit during the lunch rush, unless you're by yourself. The tonkotsu broth is as good as it gets.

    Cheap, fast and delicious! The only disadvantage is usually the long waiting time to get a seat

    The actual shop is in the basement. And typical there is a queue starting in the basement. Very interesting service system. And ramen booth?!

    It's a bit like eating on a factory production line. Queues, places for one person.

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