Phenomenal Ramen

Don't let the claustrophobic ambiance fool you. Once they place that steaming bowl of noodles in front of you, prepare for an outstanding ramen experience. I highly recommend the tonkotsu and tampopo.

While on a solo layover in Seattle I stopped in The International District and had the Spicy Miso at Samurai Noodle. It was convenient, comfortable and exactly what I needed on a grey cloudy Seattle afternoon. I will definitely return on my next trip!

Coming from Hawaii I have been used to a high quality of Japanese food in the State, was feeling very homesick for it in Washington but this place brought it right back! This was the best bowl of Ramen I've had since my last taste in Sapporo Japan! Yummy, good serving, many options including less fatty pork and different broths... More

Hole in the wall restaurant with barely seating for a dozen and an open view into the kitchen made me feel like I was back in Japan. Ramen options were impressive in their variety. Noodles are fantastic and the tonkatsu broth was wonderfully seasoned. Service was fast and not overly attentive, so you could get your bowl quickly and then... More

Small hole in the wall place with really good ramen! Noodles are handmade! Only had a few tables and we had to wait but it was well worth it!!

This little place is never going to win a beauty pageant, but their ultra-small kitchen can crank out some slurp worthy ramen. I had the shouyu-tonkotsu broth with firm konnyaku noodles. Add on a soft boiled egg and fiery chili paste and POW! ... you have a bowl of ramen that will get your attention. My only beef is that... More

This is my husband and my favorite restaurant in seattle. Best ramen I've found in the U.S. so far. It gets pretty close to good ramen shops in Japan. Casual environment and good ramen shop atmosphere. We also love the noodles, and will usually pick up a couple balls of their noodles to make at home.

This is a tiny store tucked around the back of Uwajimaya store in Seattle. We were in a ramen mood and they delivered. I had #1 the Tonkatsu - pork broth, thick noodles, pork slice and green onions. My wife had #5 Tempopo, which had thick noodles, chicken broth, pork slice, 1/2 an egg and green onions. Both dishes were... More

I love Samurai Noodle. It is tough to find good ramen in the US but you can find it at Samurai Noodle. Make sure you order gyoza as well.
