Went on the recommendation of a local. Had the best brussells sprouts of my life. Fantastic pork belly buns. Highly recommend. We were only in Portland 2 days, would have loved to go back for the ramen. The ramen looked fabulous.

We have been several times to this restaurant's big sister, Miyake, so we were well disposed to trying their noodle shop. We loved it. One of us had the rice noodles with pork and the other had sushi lunch. Both were absolutely delicious.

Massive house salads, big steamy bowls of noodles with delicious pork belly and fixings! A great spot for meeting friends for lunch or a casual dinner. Limited seating for large groups, call ahead. Lots of bar seating and high two tops. Large portions, excellent value.

Great great great ramen noodle bowls!! The broths are on point and in my opinion the best noodle bar north of Boston! Seating on the street makes for a great people watching perch in the summer months..When in Portland, go here! U won't be disappointed!

The Brussels sprouts dish was simply amazing! It's a must-try whenever you are in Portland, Maine. Their ramen was also good.
