    Brisket was good. Miso was amaze balls! Having eaten at some of the best ramen places in Japan, I have to say this holds up. It's a twist on traditional ramen. And yes I ate my entire bowl.

    What started out as a place we hoped would have good ramen, Cheu Noodle Bar is Philly's home for truly creative Asian snacks and small bites, as well as noodles. [Eater 38 Member]

    This is the best restaurant I've ever been to! AMAZING vibe, fantastic food, and super cool drinks! Check out their brisket matzo ball ramen for the perfect Jewish Asian fusion!

    Washington Square West's hipster-y, alternative noodle bar that dishes out ramen as well as any traditional Japanese soup shop, not to mention a number of other tasty Asian favorites.

    We think Cheu Noodle Bar is one of the best deals in town with smart dishes showcasing amazing ingredients. We loved the Bolognasian – minced pork, watercress, horseradish and the Crispy Rice Cakes.

    Turn your gaze to the chalkboard specials, and let it drift down to the desserts. If it’s your lucky night, they’ll include Bubbie’s Banana Bread. Read more

    The beef brisket ramen is great, but the best thing on the menu is the pork belly buns. $3 per bun, but worth it. They're very filling. 4 or 5 would make a decent meal.

    This place is AMAZING!!! When in Philly, you have to try this place. Non traditional ramen type dishes. I've never had a bad meal.

    Everything was delicious! Get there early during the day or evening because it is a small space and you might have to wait a little. It'll be worth it though!

    Brisket ramen and chicken wings are both big winners. Wish they still had the BBQ pig tails, which were incredible.

    Some of the best ramen in Philly, it's a little small on the inside so you might have to wait, but it's worth it!

    Coconut curry noodles are a favorite by everyone. And the brussel sprouts, when in season, are must haves!

    Tasty ramen, but not as good as Terakawa. Black garlic wings were great though.

    If there's a wait, leave your number and grab a beer at Strangelove's or Varga Bar. Because you should wait, and it likely won't be too long.

    I prefer Terakawa for a more authentic experience. This is an American version of Ramen, which is good in its way, but not for me.
