I have found an authentic Ramen place near where I live aside of course from Fujin Ramen. They serve one type of ramen, the Hakata. We didn't wait in line that long as it was late in the afternoon. I guess we were just lucky. We were also seated at the bar as I watched this Japanese guy does his... More

They do one thing here and they do it very well, Ramen. They do have side dishes like gyoto (wontons) steamed rice and Japanese style beef, like what you would see at Yoshinoya but the specialty is the ramen. Not fluent in Japanese? No worries, they only prepare their ramen one way. You get a list of things you can... More

Now many of the ramen joints have expanded eastward, because many of its demographics reside in these areas and obviously, it is a pain to get to Little Tokyo for lunch. This SSG is right in the heart of Asiantown, but its appeal is beyond just the Asian foodies and what not. Make sure to get extra noodles, its worth... More

First time to visit the place with family. Additions available for a price. Flavor it the way you want it. The staff are friendly and courteous. Prepare to wait but it's worth it. Will be back to make more!

Traditional Japanese's restaurant type. All waiters and cooks greet you loudly as soon as you walk in. This is a " built your own ramen" type. You can choose ramen (normal, hard...), thickness and richness of soup, many add-in such as char-siu, egg poaches, fried onion... (extra charge, of course. Lol). What stands out from this restaurant to others is... More

I discovered this place in Little Tokyo when it first opened 2 years ago. The ramen noodles are excellent and you can customize your to your liking. Hmmmmj!

We frequent this ramen house about once a month. It's a distance from home but worth the drive. The broth is consistant and the choice of noodle ramen is always on the dot. They also offer many other items on their menu. I usually get the Chashu rice bowl and their dollar salad. I also like the many choices on... More

Many have already reviewed this little restaurant in a non descript strip mall with chinese restaurants. Locals are the clientale and the only way I found it was through Trip Advisor. The food was good and didn't sit heavy. We had the won ton soup, calamari and deep fried shrimp. The menu was confusing and we didn't exactly know how... More

When you have a bad cold or allergies, ramen is just so warm and comforting. Known as one of the better ramen places around. But don't go when you have a headache because they greet very loudly.
