Was here from friend's recommendation. It wasn't the usual/traditional ramen you would expect with very spicy sauce. The noodles were chewy but I kinda wish they have an option that wasn't that spicy, I had the one with the lowest spicy level and was still...More

We read some articles introducing this restaurant, and so we set our expectation pretty high. However, after trying, feel that is just fair. If you are just looking for fast food quality, or anything spicy, that is ok. The only thing special about the ramen...More

If you like spicy chewy ramen with a lot of cabbage, bean sprouts and tofu, this place will certainly hit the spot. We ordered the Super spicy ramen and our tongues were on fire! But that said, the ramen broth was absolutely tasty!
