They only have counter seats where you can enjoy watching your ramen being made. The owner had been working at one of the most famous ramen shops in Osaka, and then opened his own shop in Tokyo.

This is their popular menu called "Shibishio" (990 yen).
"Shibi" stands for "shibibushi" which means dried tuna, and "shio" means salt.

The soup is incredibly good. This clear soup is made from various kinds of broth mixed together, such as chicken, kelp, and of course, tuna. You can enjoy the elegant, sophisticated flavors.

They also make a great effort on their homemade noodles. The owner even considers noodles as the most important role in ramen.

The ramen has tuna as a topping too! Their tuna is very fresh which is selected from Tsukiji, the Tokyo's biggest fish market. The chef flambes the tuna with sake to remove the fishy smell.


If you crave for an amazing and unique ramen experience, Gantetsu is a highly recommended ramen shop!
I love traveling and eating. My favorites are everything matcha and cheesecakes.
