Ratings and Reviews
Great app, needs a bit of tweaking imo
I downloaded this app after seeing the creator featured in one of the Facebook pages I am following. It has steadily improved and has covered ramen shops outside of Tokyo as well. I visited a ramen restaurant near Sagamino Station in Kanagawa called Hokkaido Ramen Denmaru and it isn’t there. I’m not surprised, since the creator did mention that this is a one-man project, if I remember correctly. Covering ALL the shops in Japan will take years and a lot of money. I guess he needs to add a link or button that will allow us to add restaurants not included in here and rate it ourselves. Make it like the Yelp for ramen, you know what I mean?
However, please be aware and read the app description before downloading, this app is intended for foreigners who are living in Japan. If you’re in the States, Yelp is your best bet.
Super useful, fun and informative.
I love this app. I lived in Japan for six years and found this app during my last year there. It exposed me to numerous ramen shops that I had no idea about. The top ten lists are awesome and make it easy to find interesting shops to visit. This is a must have app if you are visiting Japan and are crazy about ramen.
Best English ramen app
Fantastic app, a must have resource for anyone visiting Tokyo and even if you are not, a very fun read.
