Japanese ramen place in the heart of San Francisco! Our foursquare account is now verified and we are now on Facebook and Twitter too!
Katana ramen includes karage and gyoza in the broth - which is good because there isn't much pork besides. The miso flavor is amazing and the corn is a great addition. Among the best in the game
Katana-Ya ramen has everything
Ramen is a trending taste in SF this summer! Join in on the fun at Katana-Ya where the locals love ordering the chasu ramen. Enjoy!
Kinda confusing entry as there're 2 doors to same restaurant. Otherwise good
Ask for vegetarian ramen with miso and specify non-meat (pork) based broth. Add the fried chicken (karaage). The sho-chu is strong! If you prefer sweet, the plum wine is like liquid candy.
They usually having a wait outside during lunch. The katana ya ramen is awesome. Do try their fried chicken. They also have decent sushi rolls.
Authentic restaurant but the wait for a table can be long. Good options for vegetarians.
Their ramen is to die for

Best ramen I've ever had
Kaarage is killer
Roasted chicken miso ramen and gyoza appetizer.
Katana-Ya Ramen with corn, potstickers, fried chicken, and BBQ pork
Totally recommend the Katanaya ramen, so good! Definitely one of the best ramen I ever had.
Friendly staff, clean restroom, awesome ramen!
used to be a wonderful ramen place but now just sucks donno why they use instant noodle to replaced the ramen. wont come again
Skip it. Sub par noodles and overcooked egg
Ownership has changed and so has the broth and staff. Not as awesome as before but still good.
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
