“Who Knew?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

What a nice surprise down in China town. Linen napkins was the first surprise. The food is great and so reasonable and the staff are so nice. Never had Ramin before but now it is on my favourites list. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

“Well done!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Great surprise down in China town. Loved the atmosphere and looks of the venue, food was well presented with a taste to match. Short but well executed menu with killer ramen, good cocktails and a interesting beer menu.

Highly suggest this joint if you're out for a casual bite and a couple of drinks.

“Go to Honolulu just for the Pork Ramen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We found this place by accident. Loved it so much we kept on going back. The ramen noodle soup is just stunning. The pork ramen was my favourite. Truly delicious, quite cheap and very delicious. Whole pork suasage plus some pork belly, and an soft boiled egg with the thick ramen noodles in this best broth. Fantastic.

“A MUST TRY !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

A plush, friendly place. Beer, liquor, or like Frank S, cokes are fine. The best dishes in the WORLD. 20 kinds of soups with fresh noodles or without. Broth that has real flavor that you will truly enjoy. Sometimes simplicity is better. The Chef should be on TV. Great salads, great everything. $20. gets you a long way and you leave satisfied. Trendy in old Honolulu. Walking distance from Aston Executive Center on Bishop Street. E N J O Y ! Atmosphere and Romance abundant.

“One of the first places I would take my friends and family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

as a tourist to Honolulu, we stopped by downtown and i was initially hesitant to come in for some noodles-assuming it was just another "noodle" joint. instead, the minute i looked at the menu, got a swirling whiff of the kitchen flavors, i knew this place was delicious. i'm really glad we ate here and if i lived in Hawaii, id come here every week.

we started out with the beet and goat cheese salad and the shrimp gyozas, wow-a! the guac puree with the gyozas was a perfect compliment and i couldn't get enough of it. the green salad that accompanied the beet salad needed more dressing and a bit of salt and our server was not shy and obliged with our request. we got way too much food cause now its ramen time. my favorite part of the ramen was the hard boiled egg with runny yolk, broth and noodle-ok pretty much all of it.

service was excellent and very friendly. comfy ambience and fun place to dine. great for a meetup with friends, a date or just solo.
