    This is a "real restaurant" so if you don't want to be harassed make sure you wait to be seated

    Great dependable food at low-to-mid range prices. Harvard square really needed this. A new go-to place for us, solves many "where should we eat" arguments!

    When they say "firecracker" they mean it. This is spicy even if you're used to Middle Eastern / Indian kind of spicy. We loved it, but it's not for the faint of heart :-)

    Vegetarians, stick with the moyashi soba. And start your meal off with edamame and a glass of fresh-squeezed juice, such as carrot.

    If you're by yourself, get a window seat. I ordered the seafood ramen (if you can bring yourself to buy a $15 bowl of ramen). It does come with a lot of fish and other stuff.
