Yokozuna 橫綱 : Long Lineup For Ramen in Hong Kong

Diana Chan November 15, 2012 Four Beakers, Japanese, Yau Ma Tei

Yokozuna may be a name of a famous wrestler, but in Hong Kong, it’s a place where everyone goes for ramen. It’s located in Yau Ma Tei. It has long line ups during lunch and dinner. The interior is quite small and can only fit about 20 people inside.

When I came here, there was already a line up. We waited around for about 20 minutes before we could be seated.

We started off with milk tea. It comes as iced tea and then you can mix in the liquid sugar and cream to turn it into milk tea.

I don’t trust myself mixing things since I never get the right measurements to make a perfect milk tea. It tasted alright, but not amazing. Not sure if it was me or the tea.


Sakura Shrimp Ramen in Shoyu Broth. The ramen is quite big and there are combo options where you can order a small rice and drink to go with it. My friend the ramen tasted really good and definitely worth the price.

Korean BiBimBap was served here, which was a bit random since its supposed to be Japanese food. It was really weird and wasn’t very good.

Pork Ramen in a Spicy soup was really good! There was a lot of meat, corn and bean sprouts. Definitely go with spicy if you can since it gives it a nice flavour.

Overall, we enjoyed our meal here. Despite the long lines, its worth getting some ramen here. Just make sure you try to avoid the crazy hours or line up early.

We Rate Yokozuna:

Yun Kai Building, 466-472 Nathan Road,
Yau Ma Tei
