    Not the best ramen you will ever have but also not the worst. Super fast and friendly service, lacks ambience but not much more to expect from a mall joint.

    Can I sit here? No. Can I order that? No. Can I have this drink? No. Most disappointing experience ever in SF.

    The best combo ramen is the way to go. Surprisingly great noodles, considering you're inside of the mall.

    It is a mall food court: this is the McDonalds of ramen. Once you understand that fact, it's pretty darn good

    The ramen is satisfactory if you need are in a rush and need a quick fix. Not as good as other Ajisen's that are around.

    As far as ramen goes, this is better than a 50 cents dry ramen pack but nowhere near what you should expect of a ramen restaurant. Then again, it's in a mall so...

    It's like the Panda Express of ramen. Lower your expectations and you'll have a great experience. It's perfect for when you are in a mad rush! Again, not the best but not the worst

    People, this is an adequate ramen place at a mall. If you're here for the mall, this place will do. If you're here for premium ramen, there are more suitable places. Mostly not at malls.

    Kinda disappointed. I really didn't like the miso ramen, however Ajisen beat ramen was a lot better. Food is not so great, however service for pretty good. I'd skip this place (for ramen at least!)

    Lots of haters here. This place is fast food ramen. Someone even suggested panda exp. If your standard for Chinese mall food is PE, then you shld not expect exquisite ramen in the mall either.

    If you are some transplant or bridge and tunnel person, please make your way to Panda Express immediately. That place is more suitable to your pedestrian pallet.

    The spicey pork ramen is very very good and very spicey. Sometimes when Ramen places say it's spicey it seems mild but they don't joke here. Absolutely wonderful.

    Eat somewhere else! If you want Japanese ramen, it's not the place to be. Maybe the food here is Japanese ramen in another dimension, not here on earth! Walk away! Save your money.
