    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    The location leaves something to be desired, but the food is indeed good. Perhaps one of the best ramen restaurants in the city

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

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

    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 :)

    Don't forget to try donburi dishes! They're also good like the curry and ramen ones!

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

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