The place is small and they only serve the noodles I want on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We went close to their closing time but the place was 2/3 full so i guess that's a good sign. I got the spicy tonkotsu noodle, I ended up adding more chili but that was just a personal preference. The broth was very flavorful, would ask for extra pork though and extra veggies next time. Definitely would recommend to friends.

Why hasn't there been a review since 2013? Nice small Japanese fast food location, that you can either there or take it to go. We had the Chicken Yakisoba, which was good and tasted like I remember. Next time I want to try the cold ramen that they have on the menu now (maybe only for the Summer, so will need to go back in July or August

Staff was friendly and a greeting was voiced as you enter. Lots of tables to eat there and the serving sizes are large. There is also a small outdoor patio, but I am sure it doesn't get too much use in the summer, but maybe in the Winter or spring it would be a nice area to enjoy the meal.

If you are at the hospital or visiting Lee Lee market, stop in here. It is a in the strip mall next to Lee Lee's

We have eaten at Ikkyu twice now and have found the staff to be very friendly and helpful as they guide you through the menu. They offer Donburi - bowl dishes served over rice; Bento Boxes; Yakisoba - noodle dishes; Teppan dishes - meats and vegetables grilled; Curry; and, Sushi. We wanted to start with Sushi but didn't see a cucumber roll on the menu but the chef saaid he would make it for us - avocado and cucumber - delicious. On Thurs - Sat they offer Hot Ramen which seems to be a favorite of the regulars - the hot Ramen comes with Tonkatsu or sliced pork. My wife had it and said it was very good. The inside of the restaurant is small but they also have some outside seating which is very pleasant this time of year. Young Asian students like the restaurant which tells you something about the authenticity of the food. This is one of our go-to restaurants for good Japanese food. The prices are VERY reasonable, most entrees around $7.00 - great value!!!!!

If you love authentic Japanese fast food this is the place for you. For $10 you can have a delicious meal and a generous helping. Everything i have tried on the menu has been excellent. If you like sushi or Japanese stir-fry this is a great place to try.
