    Had the spicy garlic tonkatsu. Average ramen, decent portion. Really good lunch special. 6 piece roll and bowl of ramen for $11. Wouldn’t go out of my way for it. However they play some great music!

    Their lunch speacial for $10,95 includes ramen and roll 👍

    The noodles were just about the only thing that didn't disappoint with the spicy garlic tonkotsu: A broth that was spicy but otherwise just boring, overcooked eggs and tough chashu.

    Not good at all, broth is not tasty, poor belly too fat, no smoke taste at all, many places around the city offer better ramen

    Mmm, pork belly. Tontontaksu Ramen is awesome, spicy or plain. They also serve Sushi which is great. Good restaurant and very nice service. Gave us a good lead on the R2 unit we're looking for too.

    The cha shu isn't very good, the noodles are ok and the spicy garlic tonkatsu broth is good.

    Ramen. Go classic with the Tonkotsu and get the spicy if you're into that. The egg is perfectly cooked so gotta toss that in as well.

    Most perfectly cooked ramen egg ever. I'm a whimp when it comes to spiciness so I will order the mild spicy garlic tonkatsu broth next time. They give you a big portion of the karaage appetizer.

    Hands down the best ramen in the city. Get the tonkatsu ramen with extra pork belly. You'll be happy you did.

    Food quality is not consistent here. Sometimes the ramen is good. Had a few instances where the meat was old. Avoid everything on the menu unless it's spicy pork ramen.

    Tonkotsu or bust. Service is wonderful. Pregame @ Durty Nelly's after getting your name on the wait list.

    Close to the golden gate park. Though a little small, it's cozy and food there is great. Recommend the spicy ramen there.

    I go here for the Tonkotsu w/pork belly or sushi combo. Best ramen around, decent sushi if you're in the mood for that instead.

    I prefer the standard tonkotsu to the spicy garlic version; no reason to mess up the deep rich flavor. Make sure to add an egg (perfectly cooked!) and of course, those braised pork belly chunks.

    The spicy garlic miso ramen is tasty, but get it if you can handle the heat.

    I think they have a new cook. Extra spicy now means no flavor and so much spice it will burn a hole in your stomach.

    if they have the chicken broth ramen special i highly recommend you get it--it's like a chicken tonkotsu, rich and concentrated.
