Travel time on foot is approximately 3 minutes from Shinjuku Station – West Exit, and 6 minutes on foot from JR each line Shinjuku Station (South Exit or New South Exit).

Long lines always happen here in this small but undeniably famous ramen house! To avoid the hassle of lining up, it’s best if you can arrive earlier than the opening time of the shop.


“The Counter Area”

This ramen shop has a total of 14 counter seats and the dining area is indeed narrow so you’ll be seating next to other customers, and elbow to elbow type of seating arrangement.

The ambiance is just like any other ramen shop with an average loudness. You can also witness people lining up at the back of the ones seating at the counter seats while eating. This is kind of style is so interesting for me. I don’t know how and what to feel knowing that there is someone waiting for the turn over. Regardless of this setup, this ramen shop is truly worth the queue.

Most of their customers are Japanese “salary men” or office workers nearby and foreign travelers.

Recommended Menu

The restaurant is famous for its Dipping Ramen-style or known as Tsukemen here in Japan. The perfect mix of fish and chicken broth made the soup richer in taste and extraordinary.

“Zaru Ramen”


These two are popular choices in this restaurant not only because of the flavorful soup but because of the slurpy and silky noodles.
