    Black garlic ramen is the way to go here. Or the tan tan ramen.

    The miso taken was hearty and delicious -- a solid broth. The massive kyu-shu danji ramen is fantastic with a bone broth that is to die for.

    The Kyushu danji ramen lies about its size. Order if you wish to feed a village.

    This place is the best Ramen. Fresh noodles and the gyoza is bomb. They don't have Sapporo at this location but the staff mentioned I could go out and byob. Excellent service.

    The best ramen I ever had. You have to get the terakawa ramen. The depth of flavor is incredible, it takes them two days just to make the broth!

    Very rich broth here compared to other ramen joints, but we love how full it is. Our vote is for Black Garlic Oil ramen.

    Decent ramen- I recommend the tan tan, but don't come for good service or arrive after 10. The lone angry Cantonese woman will do her best to guilt-trip-throw-you-out.

    While tonkotsu is most commonly associated with Japan's Hakata region, Terakawa has its roots in Kumamoto, a nearby prefecture known for its slightly milder variation on the style. Read more

    Their ramen is consistent and there's never too long of a wait! I prefer it to the overrated neighboring Totto Ramen which always disappoints.

    It's not the greatest ramen place, it's also not the worst. I come here often as it's close to home and there's generally no wait - unlike ToTo Ramen. Skip the apps - go straight for the Miso Ramen.

    This place's simple "hole in the wall" ambience actually has its appeal. Terakawa dense broth def tastes different from that at ToTo, setagaya or other ramen places in the city, and is worth trying.
