When we arrived the tiny restaurant was full. There is no room to wait. We were given a little piece of parer and told to come back in 5 minutes.
On the paper it gave us a time to arrive and 5 minutes grace, after that our table would given to others.
We returned promptly and out table was ready. You place your at the counter and pay right away. You help yourself to water, napkins, cutlery and condiments.
The food arrives piping hot and .delicious. We ordered Ramen. We both had the specials. I had the vegetarian one, the broth is very good, there could have been more veggies. The servers are fast and friendly but lingering is not encouraged.
In Japan ramen is a fast food. That Is the way it was served here. We both enjoyed our meals very much.

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 needed to put our name on the list. She raised her voice and I would not come back due to her poor attitude.

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.
