    I was doing the elimination diet and was surprised to find things I could eat here! They have gluten-free potato noodles which are freakishly translucent but soak up the flavors of the soup. 🍜 Yummmm

    Must get Benkei! Wasn't as spicy as expected, will have to try it with extra spicy oil on top next time. Ca$h only.

    This place used to be bomb but the ramen is heavy and flavorless now and the restaurant smells bad. Pass.

    Miso ramen hits the spot. Wasn't blown away or anything, but left very satisfied! Would definitely come back if I had a ramen craving & was close by.

    Get the miso ramen and the Pork buns. Usually there's a bit of a wait

    Miso ramen is delicious! The broth is very flavorful. Wish it was more spicy, though.

    It's the real deal! Go for the house specialty: miso ramen.

    I like shio ramen best with an extra egg. Get the pork buns to start. Skip the sea food ramen, not worth it.

    Trendy ramen joint that's a short walk from Music Hall of Williamsburg. The ramen is good, staff is friendly, but the wait was a bit of a downer. Otherwise, a great spot.

    Chewy (al dente) noodles, broth with depth of flavor, friendly and accommodating Japanese staff, and not too hard on the wallet! 😋

    Gyoza are very tasty but light/not filling, miso ramen is tasty!

    Tried the miso and Yebisu ramen. Food itself is good. But the cash only policy and the built-in gratitude in bills kinda lowered the experience

    Probably one of the better ramen spots in the neighborhood.

    Before your ramen, order the delicious bao buns filled with pork, onion, lettuce, scallion, shiitake mushrooms, mayo, and a boiled egg.

    Get the Shoyu Ramen: soy sauce base soup, ramen noodles, roasted pork, bamboo shoots, scallion, and toasted seaweed.

    Shoyu ramen has a strong, flavorful taste. Seafood ramen is light with lots of mussels and crab. Cool spoons.

    Shoyu Ramen and the Shio Ramen are both very tasty but the Shio is more salty than Shoyu (but yet sooo good!). Very nice meat and vegetables in the bowl make the perfect match with the glass of wine.

    Edamame (perfectly seasoned) is a very good thing to start and right after a 6 piece fried dumpling.
