Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 21 April 2013

Horaiken is a Nakatsu original and if you come to Nakatsu many people will recommend it. It is a good restaurant and the food is good. There are garnishes on your table so you can decorate your ramen. Sadly they don't have the fresh garlic...and garlic presses found at some of the other Ramen restaurants. I am not sure what sets this shop ahead of the other selections in the city. The price is a bit high for what is a very casual looking shop. No problem with the service but nothing exceptional either. Don't get me wrong, it was a good bowl of ramen, and hit the spot. But at about $17 for my meal (Ramen+Gyoza+drink) I maybe expected a bit more. Still, if you are in Nakatsu and you've already had your fill of karage, this is a place to try.More
