Food wise, the dumplings as an appetizer were very good. My wife and son had bowls of ramen which they enjoyed but here’s the thing, the bowls were half filled at best...for $15??? Not cool. I ordered the spicy Szechuan wings and a) they weren’t spicy and they had no sauce on them and 2) the order consisted of only 5 wings for $11. This is a millennial joint with a millennial crowd with seats of hard wood and last but not least, wait for it...they don’t accept cash! C’mon LEYE, that’s not right.

That place has good lunch special: half ramen bowl, small salad and a rice bowl. I think it's a great deal and their ramen is definitely one of the best I ever tried. Tonkatsu is also delicious with deep flavor. Very good and fast service with friendly staff. Recommend the place, the food is good and nice interior.

I stayed at the Hoxton Hotel across the street for a business conference and was lucky enough to discover Ramen-San. The restaurant became my personal chef and kitchen away from home literally every night of my stay. I would even eat light during the client dinners so I could save my appetite for a late-night Ramen-San. This place is THAT good! Don't miss it.

Met two friends here for the first time this evening and was blown away at everything we ate! From the kimchi fried chicken ramen and chicken pork dumplings to the incredible ice cream dessert cones, these guys do it right! Highly recommend!!
