We stopped for lunch and were surprised to find such a hidden gem. Tokyo is famous for its scrumptious Raman noodles, here you will find authentic peanut pork Raman soup. Delicious! I would recommend!

Ordered the miso ramen, and the wonton soup. The ramen was very rich in flavour, yet not salty (don't even feel thirsty afterwards). The wonton has really fresh ingredients, which was again savoury and rich in flavour.

This place is always busy. Waiting time is about an hour during lunch time. Decent meals at a reasonable price. We've been twice in a row.

We were sitting in one of the tables and the waitress came and kicked us out of the store because we didn't have our name on the waiting list. We were confused when we walked in and no one came to notify us that we...More

I enjoy these soup dishes as I get high quality tastes in a good price. Kind of small but takeout to town park for a picnic is an exc option.
