We were concerned as we walked through the door at 7PM on a Tuesday and there was only 1 other diner in the restaurant. Surprisingly, this is a very decent spot in the heart of Northern VA for ramen. We tried the tonkatsu and curry. There were some toppings I didn't agree with (something that looked like saffron?), but overall good flavor for the price. We also ordered a roll to share - the Fairfax roll. It was pretty awful. The salmon that sat on top of the roll was slightly mushy, aka not fresh. Service was also lacking. Given we were 2 of 3 people in the restaurant, one would assume service is extremely efficient and attentive. Instead, our server was slow and spent most of her time chatting with the other staff. Also halfway through our dinner, someone decided to spray the restaurant with heavy duty air freshener. It came out of nowhere and all of a sudden we were eating air freshener. Wait to clean and tidy up closer to closing time to be respectful to your customers eating!
