    The space is intimate & cute. The spicy miso ramen is quite good. The owner was there when I went and he's really nice. He's part of a jazz band & plays at the restaurant some days.

    This is my fave ramen spot thus far. The miso ramen is delightful, and definitely try the pork buns as well. Also, the staff was very friendly and the service was superb.

    The spicy miso is a favorite, the broth and noodles are cooked deliciously! Owner is nice, gave me iced japanese tea as I waited for my take-out.

    Go for extra pork, don't miss the spicy miso or shio ramen, and they actually make fried rice amazing.

    Amazing spicy chicken wings and their policy (that you can read in the bathroom) is noteworthy!

    Get the layu with your shoyu ramen. It gives a little bit of heat to the bowl and makes you want to keep eating it forever !

    Def better than minca. More broths to try and IMO they've all been better. I like the spicy miso broth best.

    The ramen here is way too salty. Solid fried rice, but go to Minca next door for your ramen fix.

    Get the extra pork. It's well worth $2 as some of the best ramen pork in the city.

    The chicken and fried rice are decent. Avoid the ramen at all cost unless you want to die of sodium intake.

    Food is mediocre. Service is a disaster. We were the only people there. 2 hours for ramen. Are you serious? Go anywhere else unless you don't mind eating much later than intended.

    Waited 10 mins for table, sat down, waitress ignored us and the two tables next to us for a good 15 minutes, and we left. No protest from waitress. Went to Minca...

    Ridiculously awful service. Minca next door is a better bet.
