    Yooo, what's good about food and quality that I can't say about this place! The beef soba & Chashu ramen, are 15/10 😤 Everything in there is 👌, even their microwavable noodles are delicious 😋.

    It's fun just to walk around and not feel like you're in the orange bubble for a while. Food wise, for the newbies, go to the noodle stand & get #11 special pork, everything is on the side & so good.

    Best Asian supermarkets in the area. Price is to be desired, but the quality of products is the best. Also, the food court is unbeatable.

    From fish to real Koshihikari rice, a broad range of Japanese standards found nowhere else - like fresh Yuzu Kosho in Red and Green - and Tokyo Negi - and Saki Lees for pickles. Great Miso selection.

    Great ramen place. My asian food knowledge is probably 4/10, so this is a great place for folks like me to explore. They have everything in the same place (food court) so it's easy to find new stuff.

    It was more Americanized than I had anticipated. I was expecting to feel out of place, but it was basically nothing but white people, both shopping and working. Can't say I'm too impressed.

    Best ramen noodles around. But there's no assigned seating so prepare for the hunger games when you're trying to find a table.

    Love its spicy tuna onigiri. The rice is fluffy and the tuna filling spiced right. It's better to go earlier in the day to ensure you get your hands on at least one.
