Definitely authentic, somewhat daunting

It almost felt like we'd stepped into a foreign country, but it was a unique, positive experience. If you think you'd like Asian Ramen, I would definitely say give it a try.

The hardest thing for us was figuring out which alcoholic beverages to choose. The wait staff wasn't too helpful in that regard, but we got through it.

It's ok and very expensive for a bowl of ramen noodles. I guess it doesn't have many competitions around here so they charge more. The noodles tasted good but not impressed. Maybe because I'm trying to compare it with the best places in NYC.

The first time I went it was pretty empty and the food was very tasty, but the next time I went it was crowded and the food was not cooked enough, and the servers were unimpressive. This place doesn't work as well with more people it seems. The prices for the amount of food you get us pretty ridiculous, especially... More

This place is legit. I was wanting to try it and I'm happy I did. Small place but big on flavor. Definitely worth heading there no matter where you live. Ramen was wonderful.

We've eaten here several times a month since October 2014. The ramen is the best, truly. Good quality and super tasty every time. The service can be spotty--seems every few months they cycle through waitstaff. That's not unusual in the food business, but it can be annoying. During a recent visit, the service was awful. That being said, it's worth... More

To be completely honest I thought both the food and service was horrible... the waiter/waitresses took way to long to take our order and bring us our water and everything else we needed. Oh and the food don't even get me started on that..the food was way too salty. my family and I just had a horrible experience. Don't waste... More

If you are looking for some good Ramen, you won't be disappointed. For $1.99 more, you can get an extra bowl of noodle.

They open at 5pm. We got there at 5:15 and it was already full of customers. We waited for a bit. When we sat we never got service until we pulled one waitress. I guess we were just forgotten in the rush of people. I understand as being a waitress myself. The food was great; love the goyoza, takoyaki and... More

Umaido, interpreted as "Heaven for Delicacy", is the place to go for a rich, authentic bowl of Japanese ramen. The restaurant is located in a Korean strip mall in Suwanee, 45 minutes north of metro Atlanta. Despite the terrible Atlanta traffic, it is always packed. The restaurant is small but cozy with friendly servers. After I am sat down at... More

I believe this is the only housemade ramen noodles in the area! It is just wonderful. There is a pasta room in front of the restaurant where you can see them making their own noodles. I had the Tonkotsu Ramen and it is superb. Rich broth, crispy pork pieces at the right spicy level. The restaurant is modern full and... More
