We live in Sebastopol and this is our go to restaurant when I want to go out for lunch or dinner. The menu is always changing with very creative delicious combinations, I haven't experience anywhere else

After trying a couple of times without a reservation (1+ hour waits), we decided to make one and try this well reviewed local restaurant. I went for the spicy Tan Tan Ramen while my date went for it too, but without the spicey pork. I...like spicey food, so I did not think mine was too spicey, but it may be if you do not usually do spicey foods. Flavor was incredible and the ingredients were interesting and fresh. Service was great, our server was knowledgeable and attentive and everything was organized and clean. We enjoyed our dinner and will definitely go back. With a reservation, of course.More

This was our first visit to this interesting venue and it won't be our last! Enjoying the fabulous offerings at this lively restaurant was an unexpected treat. Taking advantage of the $19 two course dinner during Restaurant Week my husband and I chose the pickle...selection and Chashu-Don (pork belly and rice) along with the Gyu-Niku Shoyu Ramen (roast beef and short rib) to share. Also ordering the delightful Gyoza (pork shoulder dumplings with "wings") as recommended by Robert, our very nice host, was an exquisite addition to our meal. A nice selection of beers including Russian River's "Pliny the Elder" and Cooperage Hazy IPA were the perfect accompaniments too. Service was friendly and accommodating. You'll do well to make a reservation at this popular spot, especially if during Restaurant Week.More

Went here as a backup plan, recommended by hotel employee. Good vibe and very busy. Food was good, ramen dishes were highlight. Limited wine choices, but plenty of beer and single whiskey options.

Decent Ramon, a bit very spicy! Great drinks besides lime shortages. Decent service but long wait to get served. 2nd visit there.

Good selection of Ramen dishes. Reminded me of Tokyo. A bit on the salty side for my taste. Price is upscale.

I’ve tried several ramen places in the north bay and this is by far the best. The tofu is nice and soft on the inside with a little crisp on the outside. I’m not a fan of mushrooms or eggs and the server made sure...those were left out. Overall the broth was very flavorful. It’s nice they have vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options for those with dietary restrictions. This place is always busy so make sure to have a reservation.More

Ramen comes with a choice of three different broths: Miso, Shoyu and Spicy Tan Tan. The bowls are huge. Many extras. Donburi, Gyoza, Poke, Yakitori. Appetizers are small but with a main dish like Ramen or Donburi you won’t be hungry. Fantastic cocktails. Locals love...it!More

We loved our meal here while staying in Sebastopol. We had the karage chicken, shisito peppers, a few skewers and ramen. The server was friendly and the cider was delicious!

Everything we had was excellent. Appetizers were delicious as well as the small plates. Would return.

Yes! My friend is GF and was able to eat their ramen. You might have to specifically ask the server for GF noodles if it’s not already listed on the menu.
