Very simple menu of 6 items only. The best chicken broth soup, apparently simmered for hours with bones and stock. The flavour penetrates the ramen. Best Japanese food till date.
It’s on level 2, and tucked away neatly. A bit hard to find but very easy to fall in love with. Must visit when in Kyoto. It’s in Gion district, so another reason to go there.

Excellent black Ramen and matcha icecream. Get there at 5pm when it opens to avoid waiting for hours in the line. There are only 2 tables of 8 seats in the restaurant.

We joined a fairly long queue at around 2.15pm. A while later a staff member passed us on the way out of then back into the restaurant. A further while later we discovered by asking that the restaurant was closed and they would not be serving those in the queue. When we left, we saw that the staff member had added a “closed” sign to the menu outside without bothering to tell those waiting in the queue that she had passed to put out the sign! Go to Gion Kyoto Ramen around the corner.

Well ... how to say ...
1h queuing up (between 7:30 and 8:30)
Half of the menu was sold out ...

And of course, you eat ramen in 10 minutes. Not the best one, not the worst one.

Just avoid it if it’s overcrowded ...

My partner and I came across this restaurant by accident but it was the best accident. We both ordered the black ramen which was AMAZING. His came with fried chicken (delish) and mine came with a special fried rice (also amazing!) Finished off perfectly with match ice cream.
The staff were so lovely and attentive - the food was delicious, quick and reasonably priced. For a place with such high reviews we were expecting it to be expensive, so we were pleasantly surprised.
A+ would highly recommend
