Very unassuming little "fast food" ramen restaurant with great hours (open until 3am!). Needed sustenance while preparing to take the SC Bar exam and it filled the bill! The broth was perfectly seasoned without being overly salty, and had wonderful pieces of tender meat in the mix. The noodles were (or tasted) hand-made and the portion was massive. Great value...

The ramen is phenomenal! The texture and flavor of the noodles really makes it authentic as well as cool Japanese feel it gives off from the decorations. I've been going to this place for years and it has never let me down sober or drunk.

Oh man. This place. The Spicy Noodles are kind of great! Such a generous portion and they don't skimp on the pork/choice of meat or noodle. Served at the perfect temperature and so full of flavor and they're open late!

Two of us ate here, the first noodle shop for one and we both loved it. The food was fresh and tasty. We highly recommend the spicy noodles. We had a couple appetizers that were also fresh. The only drawback was it was a little warm inside, maybe 5 degrees too warm or so.

My boyfriend first took me to this place about a year ago, and I can't stop eating it. The spicy ramen is so delicious. It's good all the time, but I particularly crave it when I'm not feeling well. The broth is the best thing ever. I ask for no fish cake and extra egg. The service is very friendly... More

By far, this is the best Ramen bowl I have ever had. I got the Spicy Ramen and it was fantastic. The yellow noodles were great, the broth was even better and then the boiled egg made it even better. Without a doubt, this is my go to lunch spot when I am in Columbia on business.

Full flavored broth, tender pork, noodles cooked just right. Yum! My wife was very reluctant to try this but is now a fan.
