I stopped here wanting to try something different. This would really hit the spot on a cool or rainy day! The pork broth flavor was good but the pork slices not so good. Next time I would choose chicken. The noodles were good and filling....More

We went here as a family after high school graduation. Got five types of noodles all with pork. They all seemed similar to me except the spicy one, which was tolerable and not too hot. Noodles were perfectly done. My two youngest (11 and 15)...More

I love, love, love this Ramen! They have many different broths, meats and add ins to choose from so it can be different every time you have it. They always have a great selection of unsweetened teas to choose from as well.

I love Ramen and this place didn't disappoint! Great selection of broths and reasonably price. Try the Naruto. Some type of fish cake was cool to look at, and delicious to eat.

We enjoyed a quick meal here yesterday. The service was quick; the restaurant was quiet and clean. The meals were very inexpensive (less than $9) and portions were fairly large. Taking this into consideration, the food was good and I would eat here again. I...More

Upon my husbands recommendation we ate here. My vegetarian ramen was extremely weak, and overwhelmed with soy. The veggies weren't plentiful and I found the noodles gooey. My husbands ramen wasn't much better. My mother in law had rice curry and it was a huge...More

The flavors of the broth of the ramen dishes were just right. The right amount of salt and heat. Huge bowls for reasonable prices that I had for my breakfast the next day. Healthy food.
