    Although the meat here can be hit or miss, their noodles and broth are great. I would recommend going with the Shio Ramen over the more popular Tonkotsu.

    My favorite place for ramen. Broth is not greasy, but still packed with flavor.

    Okay ramen, with all the fixings. The tonkotsu broth is very underwhelming

    Great traditional, no-frills ramen. Ice ice ice cold Sapporo and Kirin on tap. Cheap happy hour beers.

    Miso Chashu Ramen had great flavor... Better than Karamiso Chashu Ramen (spicy one). Avoided sushi because of low health inspection score.

    Add chicken karaage to your ramen soup for an extra protein kick.

    Get karamiso chasu ramen. It's on the small side so get the extra chasu version for dinner.

    Terrible ambiance, but the spicy miso ramen is class. Grab some dinner here after checking out Japantown or before catching a movie at Sundance Kabuki.

    They changed the menu and raised the prices! $7 for 7 gyoza, no sausage, and a long list of Americanized sushi rolls. Whaaa??? Ramen menu hasn't changed much at least.

    Pork flavor soup ramen, not bad. Sad they don't have soft boiled eggs (the waitress said most non-Japanese people don't like it, how is that possible? 😤)

    Amazing ramen, and huge portions. Be sure to bring a to-go container if you want to take your leftovers, as they don't have their own to-go containers!

    Karamiso Ramen is the best! (spicy!) Another favorite is the Won Ton Ramen.

    Don't get the Kyushu ramen. Literally tasted like a bowl of salt and mediocre noodles. Gyozas were good though.

    Add karage to your ramen! It's very well done here, not too much breading.
