I love ramen, but don’t know very much about it, and had never heard of Hakata ramen when my girlfriend and I visited late one night after seeing a Cirque du Soleil show in San Pedro. Strangely enough, a couple that sat behind us at during the show walked into Shinsengumi right after we did! I know you can order... More

This is a consistently good place. food is tasty, affordable, and the atmosphere is high energy and fun! Love the ramen here. Be sure to accept their offer of a toast and maybe even buy the staff a pitcher of beers to share!! :-)

Wonderful ramen with great, flavorful broth and tasty noodles. The best part is that you can customize it how you like it. I like a lot of noodles, but did not have to order extra--was very full after a standard bowl. I would have given this 5 stars, but even at lunch it was so ridiculously loud inside that I... More

Whenever I am in the South Bay, I stop at Shinsengumi, often stopping for a bowl on my way to the hotel from LAX. It is up tempo like the other restaurants in the Shinsengumi family, and the ramen is great. You can choose your toppings, strength of the soup and how you want the noodles cooked. Save room for...

Everything in the Hakata Ramen is everything that ramen should be. The ingredients are fresh, the sides, are plentiful, and the flavored egg.....its not Hakata Ramen without it!

Great place to go on those cold evenings. Noodle soups are very tasty, and service staff are very friendly.

As Hoodylay mentioned, no frill or thrills, just good food. Especially now that the weather is colder. I recommend their basic ramen (add any condiments you like) but also order a bowl of their cha han (fried rice) or musubi. As the Japanese say, Oishi (good taste).

Not the "greatest" on a Japanese standard but "more than enough" for a quick ramen lunch in Gardena. (Possible discomforts) 1) Forced to wait around 12:00. Be there early. 2) More "toppings" on ramen would not hurt. 3) Ideally, a bit more "punch (salt?) and strength" on the broth. 4) Side dishes are kind of "LA fastfood-ish" and thus I... More

If you want a dependable bowl of ramen, this is your place. No frills or thrills. Just incredible basic ramen + soup. They recently remodeled the interiors so more seating hopefully means less wait. There are always people waiting outside, so I'd recommend going immediately upon opening.

Love, love, love the ramen here - by far my favorite in Los Angeles. If you're going in the evening, be prepared to wait a while for a table. It's a very small, busy restaurant with no lobby. (You'll be waiting outside.) So I'd give it a 5 for food, but I'm knocking it down to 4 for the ambiance.
