    Extremely tender and flavorful Niman Ranch beef over al dente udon noodles covered with an aromatic coconut curry broth. Delicious! Seating is cramped, be prepared to wait.

    Ordered the miso mushroom and tofu ramen, a vegetarian alternative for the miso salmon ramen. Portion was generous and broth was flavorful, slightly saltier than it should be, but still very good!

    The noodles are excellent. Haven't had a bad dish. Love that they keep the best of the menu and rotate in new items and specials. The shrimp and veg is my fav. Also get strong dumplings.

    Shrimp dumplings are a great way to start. Try the spicy ground pork over noodles. Just saucy enough with the right amount of heat.

    i don't eat wheat so got the beef vermicelli salad on this warm Eve. Quite good just a tad over dressed - the miso truffle soup next to me smells awesome

    The goat cheese wontons are everything you want them to be. Udon with lime/coconut has a great broth and lots of noodles!

    Grilled Niman Ranch Beef Udon in Coconut Lime Curry Broth is by far the best soup. Om nom nom nom!

    I found the coconut lime soup and duck red curry noodle to be a bit too sweet, with not enough 'bite'. Sweet potato fries were hearty and delicious!

    This place is great, but if you're thinking of grabbing a late lunch, don't come here because they don't take customers after 2:30 PM.

    If you think they forgot to add the herbs to your salad, they probably did. But they won't admit it.
