“Not your average Cup-Of-Noodles...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very good ramen. There was a 15-20 min wait at dinner time(usual of decent places around waikiki). Tasty, good price, left full. This place is very good, BUT if you love noodles, I'd go to Marukame Udon instead. Or if you're like me...try both.

“Tasty Ramen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

If you are into Ramen, certainly will recommend this place. There is normally a queue at dinner so be prepared to queue.
The Oxtail Ramen has to be tried - the oxtail is nice and soft.
Value wise, it was great. Just note CASH only!

Love this place for late night ramen. Strongly recommend the ox tail ramen. Have come here several times over the years and I always want to come back.

“So, so good in a fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I had just arrived into Hawaii on an evening flight and I was hungry! I found Ramen Nakamura and it was fantastic. Huge, delicious bowls of Ramen at a very reasonable price. The restaurant also had a great atmosphere and a excellent customer service. I was especially impressed with the woman who was serving everyone. She made serving about 20 people and preparing to-go orders look easy. I walked out of this restaurant impressed with the food and the service!

“Delicious ramen, come hungry, go early or late to avoid the line!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Dinner at Ramen Nakamura was flavorful and filling. I had the traditional ramen and barely made a dent in the huge portion. Service was fast, especially for the number of patrons. We waited in line for about 10 minutes, but it was late at night and moved quickly. More authentic Japanese food in a touristy area, you'll be glad you tried!
