There are a lot of different ramen and appetizers to choose from. Some ramen has Chinese influence. The soup base is very good. You do not need to pay for parking if you eat here.

I went there once and hated it but decided to try it again due to rave reviews on another site. Still did not enjoy it and will not be back again. I thought the food was terrible.
