Location is not so convenient especially on summer time because it is a bit away from the nearest station.

Estimated travel time on foot is 10 minutes from Hiroo Station (Tokyo Hibiya Line), and 15 minutes from East Exit of Ebisu Station (JR Yamanote Line · Saikyo Line).

The exterior looks a bit unorganized yet stylishly built. Please expect long lines on peak hours every single day.


The interior design really does resemble to a dining bar having a counter table, and seats. Seeing the entire area makes it even more comfortable and relaxing while waiting for the order to be served.

There are about 22 seats inside to accommodate customers. Still, lots of customers are coming in every day.

Recommended Menu

~ Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen ~

This is the highly recommended bowl because it has rich pork broth and slurpy noodles. In addition, the ingredients used are all high quality.

~ Mountain Chicken Cutlet Curry ~

Although it mainly offers ramen bowls, this curry rice is indeed popular especially to the locals.

Additional Information

Recommended for dining alone, with a friend or co-worker, and also for couple’s casual dates.
