    The soup comes with green onions asking for more makes it even tastier since its such a generous portion of soup! This week is the soft opening and the grand will be in August. Be prepared to wait!

    Solid menu replica of the Lil Tokyo staple with a couple of new dishes, but the REAL REASON to go here: 1 of the most immersive spaces in LA. Makes ya feel like yer in the small streets o' Japan y'all

    I tried all three ramens. Their tsukemen ramen (dipping ramen) is out of this world. So rich and amazing!

    My favorite ramen place finally opens up on the west side. Ramen is not the only good thing on the menu. Check out the takoyaki and cutlet rice bowls!

    Has a more substantive menu than some other locations, but also seems to be a teensy bit pricier to reflect the higher rent prices. Often there is a wait since the place is small. Still, one of my fav

    Small, but awesome interior. There will be a wait, but the service is speedy.

    See that glass container in front of you with whitish stuff inside? That's crushed garlic. I suggest you heap a few spoonfuls into your ramen to enhance the flavor.

    Definitely my favorite ramen in LA. Try the spicy miso ramen. The coleslaw salad is good too.

    If you come at the right time, with the right number of people (4 PM on a Saturday by myself) you can slide in, no wait required.

    Tsukamen finally served at the Sawtelle location. Do yourself a favor and get it here. Tsujita is down the street and doesn't compare.

    why drive all they way to Little Tokyo in downtown when you can get great ramen west of the 405?

    Just okay. Too much hype. Wouldn't wait for over 15min for this place, while the food is pretty good.

    Don't get the tsukemen. It's just regular ramen broth with nothing in it but a sauce that gives it a "sharper flavor." Tsujita's destroys this.

    Ramen is their best menu!
