Alternative Japanese

This provides a great alternative Japanese food apart from sushi and shashi. Mr Ramen is value for money restaurant with great taste. I really enjoyed spinach with sesame seeds plus chicken ramen.

As Ramen virgins, my wife and I didn't know exactly what to expect. The place just down the street had about a two hour waiting list, this one was much shorter, but still a short wait. After eating here, I can't imagine that the other one is THAT much better, if it could even be better at all. We had... More

My husband and I ate lunch here during our visit to Los Angeles. It was the largest, most delicious bowl of ramen I can remember eating. The soup in it was savory and the meat and vegetables were nicely done. A nice gem in the Little Tokyo district. We have to go back!

Been here twice for late night. Very reasonable price. Great special combos under $15. Possible to leave with spending only $10.

We love Mr. Ramen. This is our first pick for lunch or dinner when visiting Japan Town. They do have some odd hours between lunch and dinner so check to see when they are open.

I've been going here for years now, as a DTLA resident. I've never been to Daikokuya, so I cannot compare the two. I like Mr. Ramen because it has a more diverse ramen menu than other ramen restaurants (including vegetarian options for my annoying friends), and it has other menu items like curry rice, gyoza, etc. I usually get the...

Get one of the ramens with pork in it. The pork is tender and flavorable. It's an easy walk if you are anywhere in little tokyo. The wait wasn't to long and the service was great.

We were here on the last day of the Nisei Festival in August. We saw the good review of " Daikokuya " next door, but the lines were too long . We decided to try this place because my 10 yrs old is complaining of hungry. The decor was simple except some napkins drawing placed on the wall by previous... More
