My wife was skeptical but I insisted that she try it. She ordered chicken and fried noodles and said it was incredibly good. I ordered the ship charsui ramen and it was great, too. Goyza were excellent and edamame were heaping but low salt. Their fried rice dishes are very popular. Proof that this is a great restaurant is that... More

Great introduction to Ramen noodles. I am new to Ramen & trying out the various options. The basic charsiu(bbq pork) is very tasty. Have also tried the spicy options - Kimchee & spicy seafood. The wasabi shaman & char siu make good starting appetizers. For newbies, shio is a plain salt broth & shiyo is the soya based broth.

We visited Rai Rai Ramen for lunch on a Saturday. Arrived at 1:30 and had to wait about 10-15 minutes. Seems to be a very popular place. My hubby ordered the char sui miso ramen and i had the seafood ramen and we shared the fried oysters appetizer. All was very good, would definitely go back.

First they greeted us with Japanese Tea, served in a very cute teapot, with two cute cups. And they also helped with the menu. We had Pork buns, Shoyu Charsiu Ramen, and Braised Pork... More

All I can say is "We found the one!". It is really really good. We have recommended this to our friends and had also become their favorite. The oxtail is very very good and their fried rice is yum

If you want ramen in central NJ, this is the place to go. They have some other menu options as well and offer low sodium ramen as an option.

My daughter dragged me to this spot on a cold, wet winter day. What a great place to enjoy a great bowl of delicious, warming ramen. Service was very prompt, the suggestions were good and the price is not bad but perhaps just a tad high for what is basically a huge bowl of soup. No need to run to... More

we had to go to Philly to find good Ramen ...until we found this place...Great Ramen but you need to be able to wait - They would need to double the space at least to be able to accommodate the trafiic.
