You can't go wrong with Maruya. It's not going to be a transformative experience but the food is good and the prices are reasonable. They've got great lunch and dinner specials. I recommend them.

We were looking for authentic ramen. We are still looking. The broth was weak and lacking taste and they failed to prepare the boiled egg properly. They say the noodles are homemade. Perhaps, but it is a home we would not wish to visit for...More

If you want a hand made noodle experience, Maruya delivers with house made ramen noodles. This is a full restaurant so you can get sushi to ramen/udon. Try sharing if there are two of you, you can try more dishes this way. I wouldn't get...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
