When this first popped up in my search for local restaurants in Waikiki, I was befuddled. I only knew Ramen as a cheap meal in college when you could afford nothing else. After seeing the reviews, I walked past all the chumps waiting an hour in line to eat at the Cheesecake Factory, and found my way to a seat at the bar in this delightful little place. Per the other reviews I'd read, I ordered the ox tail ramen. Ox tail is not a mistranslation or euphemism. There are actually the tail joints from a cow hanging out in this dish. It was delicious though. The broth, the noodles, everything about it was good.
One interesting thing to note: if you get grossed about by slurping, you may want to avoid this place. The natives come here to enjoy the fare, and slurping the noodles is considered a sign that you are enjoying your meal (and it cools down the noodles and broth as you eat)!
