First, buy a ticket from the ticket machine in front of the restaurant. Put some money into the machine and press the button of the ramen you’d like to have. They have no menu in English, so I recommend looking up the Chinese characters for the ramen you want to order beforehand. Note that if there is a line, you have to buy your tickets before you join the end of the line. In some ramen restaurants the order is the opposite, so be careful of not doing things the wrong way.
Also, as they only seat nine people at a time and as the restaurant is popular, you often have to line up. At maximum you may have to line up for anything between 30 minutes and an hour, so please make sure you have enough time when coming to eat here.
Try adding garlic, curry powder, and red pepper to the mazesoba. The taste changes every time you sprinkle these spices on the noodles, so you can enjoy many different flavors in just one bowl of ramen.
They also have two side dishes, karaage chicken and chashu pork rice bowl, and I recommend ordering them with your ramen. I especially recommend the karaage chicken; it’s so juicy and full of the umami of fried chicken, plus the portion is big and great value.
