A good friend recommended this place to me during one of my trip to Dusseldorf, Germany. (Thanks Lyn !!) She told me that this restaurant serve really good Ramen and I was certainly craving for noodle and soup after days of pork, pork and more pork in Germany.
So, we took the train Oststraße and from there took a short walk to reach the restaurant.
We got there just in time for early lunch as Lyn say it is crazy during peak hours. Manage to reach there around 11:45am (and already there was a mini queue outside the restaurant). Fortunately, we manage to secure a table after 15mins of wait. Around 12:30pm, the crowd and queue got really crazy. phewww… !! Lucky we had Lyn to bring us around Dusseldorf.
I was really impressed to see many Japanese eating there. This is definitely a plus point when you are dining Japanese food. We ordered one Curry Rice, 2 Shio Ramen and another ramen which I forgot the name. And of course, how can you have Ramen without gyoza, right? (It’s like ordering steak without fries) So, we ordered 2 plates of those!!!
Overall the meal was really satisfying and authentic (considering you are eating it somewhere in Europe and not inJapan). Not to mention, it was relatively not too expensive. The bill was less than EUR 40 for the 3 of us. If you order just the noodle soup – it is about EUR 8-10 (depending on what you order). If you were to order this in Japan, it would probably come up to the same price. It is definitely one of the few restaurants that I will visit whenever I drop byDusseldorf.
