The perfect way to end a night out!

Located in the bustling downtown area of Kokura known as Furusenba-machi, "Banryu" serves ramen that has been a firm favorite with locals for more than a quarter of a century and is widely recognized as the ideal dish to bring a night out to a close. The luxurious broth, which is carefully prepared using 100% tonkotsu (pork bone), has a refined taste and no smell. The dish has a light quality, which is easy on the body if you have been drinking, but still maintains a richness of flavor. The Kara-age (fried chicken) is soaked in a blend of delicious flavors and is one of their specialties!

In business from 8 o'clock in the evening to to 3 o'clock in the morning, "Banryu" is known as one of the three main places in Kokura to find ramen late at night.

A great selling point of the soup is its simple quality, which is easy on the stomach. But if you are looking for extra flavor, make sure to try adding some of their golden fried garlic into your soup. It really adds a bit of punch to the dish and will give you an extra surge of energy.

Generous helpings of homemade kimchi and takana (mustard greens) are provided separately, so diners can add extra to the Kimchi Ramen and Takana Ramen dishes.
If you order the kara-age, you will be treated to a plate of 7 large pieces of chicken thigh, which has a delicious and much loved home cooked flavor. The coating is nice and thin, the skin is crispy, and the meat is succulent. As you bite into the chicken unleashes more of the fantastic flavors. It goes so well with alcohol, without realizing you will continue downing the beers!
