    Great staff and amazing ramen! Menu is limited but you can't go wrong. If you're new, start off with the Furious Ramen with a side of the pickled veggies then proceed to enjoy! Itadakimasu!

    Visiting Chicago from LA and this place did not disappoint. Not your traditional ramen but still amazing. Furious bowl on a cold day is the way to go.

    The food is great but a tad salty, would like a more traditional broth focus instead of the add-ons. Add wine to the booze list because I need it! All around great food and atmosphere.

    There are a good number of ramen on the menu, but what really sells it is the toppings you can tack onto your ideal bowl.

    I got the furious ramen with corn. I'm no ramen expert but this had a lot of flavor and just enough spice.

    Great noodle shop, ask for hot sauce on the side so you can decide how much to use

    Get the Furious! There is a reason why this ramen is named after the restaurant's namesake. Good ole' spicy comfort food. :)

    The Furious was good the noodles were overcooked. Ask for the Fury Sauce on the side. The broth is spicy enough. I don't think anyone would eat it with the sauce except for bragging rights.

    My favorite ramen place. If you like a little spice, definitely go for the Furious Ramen.

    Broth is thick and not your traditional ramen...but that's probably why I like this place!

    I am not a picky eater, but I didn't want to finish my furious noodles. Unbelievably greasy, overly salty, and bland. The furious sauce is good, but can't compensate. Friendly service. Cool music.

    I don't know about the other stuff here, but the shoyu ramen tasted like nothing and the noodles were overcooked. Incredibly disappointing.
