Great ramen, great atmosphere

Owner is really friendly and made some vegan ramen on request, which tasted very good. Met some interesting other people while eating. Ask for the special Rambo cocktail!

Cool place

Very small place with only room for 6 people. But cool english speaking owner who made me special ramen with vegetables and without the meat-broth. Was really good! And ask for his lemon drink.

It was good but not really vegan

The ramen was good. But you should know the noodles are not really vegan. They don't use eggs but use eggshell to make the noodles. And it cost ¥950. A little expensive.

A tiny, happening ramen bar

I knew I was in for a fun night here as soon as I saw the disco ball. The owner, Takaya, is a chill guy who's great for a chat, especially if you're a fellow electronic music fan. It's a great place to meet locals too - you'll be sitting shoulder to shoulder with the shochu or sake flowing.

As for the food: it's only the one bowl of dry ramen on offer (just mention you're vegetarian/vegan and can't have dashi) but I was very satisfied. The tomato, zucchini and lemon gave it a flavorsome twist.

Be warned though that you might have cuts of meat being prepared right in front of you.
