So just FYI, when you walk in, there's a powerful wet dog odor from the pig cooking process. When you get your raman, the steam from it smells like the wet dog as well. The flavor was good and the gyoza was delicious, probably the...More

It’s a very Fukuoka style ramen with thick pork flavor soup. The bake port on ramen is good and special. Staff are very friendly and efficient.

This place provides a lot of value for $10 ramen. Way more pork belly and thicker/richer broth than the other places we have visited. We went on a Thursday night around 7:30pm and there was no wait.
