I was very disappointed - we tried two different options and found both to be very greasy, the noodles slightly crunchy and the broth overly salty. The takoyaki appetizer was okay, but not great. I wouldn't go back, nor would I recommend. The place is very small and very cramped - we were elbow to elbow with the table next... More

I stopped by for a quick dinner this week, as Kahoo Ramen was the last of three ramen places I wanted to try out near my haircut place. Tasty ramen with very nice ingredients, but the broth was a tad oily for my taste, and the noodles were just vehicles, not very noteworthy. Guess I've been spoiled by my favorite... More

It is family-friendly. I ordered the Kokumaru shoyu, the miso bowl (for the kiddo), and the very small rice pork... More

We stop by because Halu Ramen was closed unexpectedly. It is just around the corner in the same mall. Line was long during lunch hour. A small restaurant and service was FAST. Pushing you in and out quickly. Remember to sign in if it is crowded. No standard ramen chili sauce/chili powder for customer except you are willing to pay... More

We waited in line for 10 minutes. It is a small restaurant, but the atmosphere is great. All the guests enjoy their orders. We ordered (baboo shoots, sesame, and onion), one shio ramen, and one spicy ramen. All are tasted great.
