Great ramen, unique ambiance

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... read 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.

This place has a nice selection of Ramen dishes and gyoza, etc. Having lived in Japan for two years, I feel somewhat qualified to say that this place is pretty good and even gets the small Ramen shop feel down well. Would go more often but moved away from the neighborhood. Need to open one in West Seattle!

I was so disappointed by the ramen here...it didn't even have the flavor of what Tonkatsu Ramen is suppose to taste like! The broth just tasted like salty chicken broth that looked creamy. No actual pork flavor to the broth! And the amount of meat they give you is a thin thin slice of pork that was kind of tasteless.... More

The ramen was good and satisfying, but the soup could have had a deeper flavor. It is also better if the meat and egg are warmed before going out. Nice that you can get extra noodles for the soup.

My family and I lived for three years in Japan and moved back in 2012 so we are accustomed to authentic ramen. We have found that most of what is called Japanese food in the U.S. is America's version of what they think Japanese food is and what Americans will tolerate. This is our 3rd time back to this restaurant.... More
