Ran Zan has long been a family favorite when we don't want to cook but don't want to expend too much money to consume too many calories. Their Nabeyaki (soup with thick noodles, veggies, and tempura) is an excellent diet meal, yummy and filling. It's not exactly a friendly place, but the food is very good and service quick. It's tiny, but one rarely has to wait.

I find myself dreaming of the snow crab asparagus roll. The husband and wife that own it are too cute also. A+++++

We were in Providence for the boat show and needed a sushi fix so tried Ran Zan after reading reviews on line. The place is tiny, 12 to 15 table with 5 seats at the bar, but had a nice selection of Japanese food including yakatori, udon and even Japanese pickles. It was so delicious we ordered more. The one waitress for the entire busy place was also very gracious despite her workload and took the time to have us sample the sake before we made a choice. Would definitely return.

Small place but worth the visit. Apparently recently remodeled. Tasty and fresh, definitely worth a visit if on the easy side of Providence near Pawtucket. Great for a quick lunch too.
