I know my ramen pretty well and I think Kukai serves very good ramen. My husband also agrees. He had a shoyu ramen and I had a yuzu shio ramen. Both were delicious. The soup was light for ramen and very tasty. Some reviewers pointed out to the saltiness of the broth, but I think it is quite normal for ramen broth to have this much salt in it. Most people in Japan don't drink all of the soup anyway. The noodles were good - not too hard, not too soft. The egg on top was just perfectly boiled - white part is fully yet softly cooked and the yellow part oozing out. The egg was lightly seasoned with soysauce. The green vegetable on top was done just right also - crunchy yet properly cooked. The chashu was grilled after being sliced, which is unusual. It tasted good, but it seemed a tad dry to my taste. Perhaps Americans prefer it this way over soft and fatty chashu that you normally get with ramen in Japan. I asked for an extra topping of beansprouts and they were good. I think I would ask for some green onion topping next time. The server was pleasant and very attentive. I will definitely go back there and would recommend it to my friends.
