    Inexpensive, probably the cheapest ramen you'll find. Pretty fast moving so don't worry about the line. Quality matches price.

    Tried ramen for the first time ever - pika miso ramen (I asked for less salt, and that amount was perfect!). Pretty good, but I'll opt for the spicy version next time.

    Their serving of noodles in the ramen is 6oz instead of the typical 5oz

    Unimpressed by their Yuzu broth. It is seafood based too which wasn't written on the menu. Stick to their other ones.

    I had the "Spicy Chicken Don" for lunch which was very tasty. This cozy little place has staff that greets you as you walk in and also when you leave. Try to beat the rush though, if you want a seat.

    Spicy Miso Ramen rocks. Add an egg and a side salad. The homemade ginger dressing is great.

    Great (Tatsuta) curry rice - it has way bolder flavors than most places that offer the same dish in Boston which I love. Their ramen's good too. Anticipate long waits during dinners and weekends.

    If you go Curry Rice then get the Japanese Mayo. Nice dipping sauce.

    An Allston staple. During this ramen craze, it's great to keep things traditional every now and then. Come for lunch & enjoy the metal that's playing.

    Got the spicy miso ramen. Broth was not as creamy as Sapporo's but it had more depth of flavor. LOVED the garlicky goodness 😍

    Very nice and thick ramen noodles. As a Japanese person, I say this place is pretty good :)

    Tucked away behind the very good food court is this slightly more expensive Japanese gem. Killer spicy miso ramen.

    In case you're counting, Pikaichi specifies they serve seven ounces of noodles in their soup rather than what they say is a conventional five. Try the Tonkatsu, a juicy pork cutlet fritter. Read more

    Amateur food at best! I doubt they actually cook anything. It tasted like reheat frozen tv dinner.
