Japanese ramen place in the heart of San Francisco! Our foursquare account is now verified and we are now on Facebook and Twitter too!
Good ramen. Nice service. The place is small. Lines are frequent.
Holy buttery salmon nigiri. Get your ramen with a miso base, rich, and medium spicy (unless you want to blow your nose every five minutes). Sapporo on tap was the perfect cleanser/finish.
Overrated and the line is too long
The house Ramen is solid. Maybe get the gyoza and chicken on the side if you don't want them to get soggy. Also, beware long lines, even at 3pm
Pretty good, a solid B rating ramen. Tables are tiny so be mindful when ordering!
Not that good as its reputation. Little bit disappointed.
Katana ya ramen, completo y muuuuuuy rico e original .
The vegetarian ramen with the miso broth is out of this world!
Eh. This place was so-so. The fried chicken in your ramen is interesting but not "blow your mind" interesting.
It's Katana-ya or Ramen underground. Try both. Get the miso ramen here. Well worth the wait to be seated.
Nigiri: great for late nate 7
Food is so good. Slow service.
Try the buttercorn ramen :)
If you like your dumplings and fried chicken crispy you can ask for it on the side otherwise they will dump it in your Katana-Ya Soup.
Not bad and ok ramen. Their staff are v friendly tho
Best ramen place ever!
Not typical/authentic ramen but their namesake bowl is a kind of chicken sink option (love the fried veggie dumplings it came with) that was great since I was super hungry.
Epic Ramen Recommended :)
The corn butter ramen is delicious. They have veggie friendly options too.
What am I missing on this chasu ramen? The pork is like shoe leather. Nothing compared to San Mateo or NY Tonkatsu, etc.
The deep fried spicy tuna must try! Not too spicy though but can feel the punch just like Tabasco
Used to be a Quiznos.
Open till 2am
Excellent and popular ramen spot! Keep it simple and try the regular ramen with soy broth. You won't be disappointed.
The spiciest miso broth is so perfect. Curry was great too. That's the rainy day combo!
The namesake ramen is beyond good. Ask for it rich whatever your broth preference.
miso ramen + uni ikura don is dericious
Try Katanaya-Ramen with a Sapporo Draft Beer
I'm a fan of thinner noodles, traditionally, but the flavor and vibe was what's up. The ramen is spaghetti thickness and quite filling.
Waiting list is stationed outside at the door. The Katana-Ya bowl has the best of everything and will leave you satisfied.
Awesome filling ramen! The Katanaya or BBQ Pork are must haves
The Katana ya ramen has everything but the kitchen sink and it's delicious; pork, fried chicken, dumplings an egg and more. I went miso and rich. Nice.
Here is the difference between normal and extra spicy in a photo.
The ramen here is decent, but the best part is that it is open late-night.
The katanaya ramen is delicious. Great for someone who wants to try everything and can't decide what to get - it has a little of everything!
Reaaally huge portions!
The Katanaya Ramen is the heartiest, most satisfying meal you'll ever eat. If you're slightly less hungry, the deep fried chicken ramen is really really good too.
Ordered same thing twice. Because it's good. Speciality Katana-ya Ramen with Miso Sauce. Soporra beer goes good with it...
Come for the ramen, stay for the Toro. Get there early and then head out for drinks in the mission.
Medium spicy Katanaya Ramen with Miso sauce is great. A must try. It's their speciality... Good place for lunch...
Not the best ramen in the city, but the late hours make it an ideal spot.
Late night food place and RAMEN
Their ramen is A+.
I had a very good experience here. Ask for sushis in a combo. Draft Japanese beer is fine too.
Get the katana ya special, but don't be afraid to send it back if it's cold. Tasty when it's done right.
Very nice ramen. Stop in for a quick bite
