    Not a big ramen fan but this place is pretty darn good! The spicy miso ramen is on point and I dream about the Jinya Bun, a symphony of pork belly goodness. Can't go wrong with their sushi either!

    Tonkatsu Black Ramen!!! Hands down one of the best ramen... perfect al dente THIN noodles in a flavorful velvety yummy tasty broth...& the deep fried truffle flavor Brussel sprouts...truly captivating

    Busy but wait time goes by quickly. Yay! Very tasty and filling cha cha cha ramen bowl (good to share w someone you are cozy with.). Yay! Seaweed salad was more salad greens than seaweed. Boo!

    Seriously, some of the richest, most authentic ramen I have had in the U.S. (and I have ramened it up in Japan)! The curry rice, however, is also delicious; worth a try if you're not a big ramen fan.

    The Black Special Ramen with egg and extra garlic is pretty good. Extra garlic is free. The service is great. Prices are reasonable and you don't have to go to lil tokyo or lil osaka for bomb ramen

    The Tonkotsu Black ramen is fantastic (like others have noted), but I have to rave about the Brussels Sprouts. These little fried morsels of deliciousness will convert any sprouts hater.

    Tonkotsu black is classic. Not too long ago they added "cha cha cha" if you feel like going fatty (but delicious) and love garlic! Either way, ask for fresh garlic, as well.

    Jinya buns were a surprising happiness! Service was a little slow, but this overcast Monday did result in a full restaurant, so willing to give a pass on this. Good ramen!

    Not bad when you're hungry for ramen and you don't feel like driving out of the Valley. Tried the shoyu tonkotsu and wonton -- both good. Gyoza surprisingly good.

    Tonkotsu Spicy hits the spot. Adding the special flavored egg & fresh garlic completes it. Leaves you thirsty afterwards. Gotta love MSG.

    Not my favorite ramen I've had to date (don't throw rocks at me), but their special egg is LEGIT - just look at that yolk!

    Try the Shio Tonkotsu Ramen - Boyfriend's ramen. Same pork shio flavored ramen but no garlic oil so creamier tasting. Yum!

    Eat: Spicy Tonkatsu. Ask for it to be with thick noodles, and with the spiciest level. You're welcome.

    Here, the noodles have some snap when you bite into them. My faves are the original tonkatsu ramen and the spicy miso ramen.

    Tonkotsu ramen, ordered "extra rich" is soooo good, but hydrate during and afterwards. The combo deals are good, but huge ... perhaps best shared.

    Good food and prices but the service is on the crappier side. I'm doing take out next time after being ignored as I waited to be seated. lots of empty tables too & many people waiting. bad.
