You'd think with 40-50 people lined up and a 2 hour wait this place would be good? Well, after your 2 hour wait in the cold, shoulder to shoulder with 50 other people, you'll find the Ramen isn't worth waiting for.

Taste isn't bad, but not worth a 2 hour wait. If there was no line, I'd be up for it, but really, 2 hours?!

Ramen is a chicken broth. Porn was tough and overcooked. Otherwise ok! But again, don't wait 2 hours!

The real thing...small about the size of a subway car, authentic ramen. No reservations, always a line and you'll see why.

Me and my friend wait for the table for almost an hour. And that was our third time stopped by. Finally we got to taste it. It was a really tinny space which is about 15 people capacity. People who were waiting outside were more than 20 usually. The took the order really fast and it came really fast. It was really tasty and really strong favor. it is definitely worth trying.

Seriously, the best ramen I've had. And I know ramen living in LA with Daikokuya in Little Tokyo and Hakata Ramen in Torrance. We showed up early on Sunday before they opened and were the first ones to put our name down. The chicken broth base was so tasty, I was smiling throughout my meal it was so good. I've had better noodles elsewhere but hands down the broth can't be beat. I was so pleased with my meal, I was still thinking about it 4 hours later. I can't wait to go back until then I'll just have to go to Toki Underground here in DC.. but it is definitely not the same.
