This was my family's first time to this ramen place. First of all, the prices are fair. The portions are good and the ramen isn't too salty. That's an issue with some of the ramen places I've been to before. There are plenty of spices and stuff ok the table that we can add to enhance the flavored to taste.... More

This is a small place near Cal State Fullerton. This is authentic Japanese noodle dishes. This is the type of place that you would find in the small towns of Japan. Good food, very reasonable prices. Beside their delicious noodle dishes, they have katsu and curry and other dishes.

This is really a little hole in the wall type restaurant neat CSUF, that my daughter and I tried out. If you like Pho, then you will really like this place, as it is similar with a Japanese twist. The food is fresh, and made right in front of you sushi bar style. Very friendly and happy staff. This place... More

My frequent trips to Pieology got me curious about this ramen establishment that was always buzzing next door. I found them to be the most popular of ramen places in a 20 miles radius (even though there's only two others). So, I checked them out. Having been here a handful of times, I can confidently say the ramen is pretty... More

I was delightfully surprised when we walked into What's Up...I always pass by and thought it was just a pay up front place and when we walked in, it was a cute, small sit down restaurant with nice seating and really authentic food and real Japanese chefs. Lots of ramen to choose from, really fast service, and a huge line... More

We live in Fullerton, and my daughter attends Ca. State Fullerton, so What's Up is right in our back yard. The ramen here is excellent and it is almost busy all the time. What we love is to come for the lunch special from Monday to Saturday (except Sunday) until 3pm. You get a nice bowl of ramen and a... More

After eating at so many "Asian" restaurants, it's nice to find a Japanese ramen shop that is truly Japanese. Fusion can be fine, but I like my ramen Japanese rather than Japanese-ish style. The shoyu ramen was tasty, and the noodles had a nice texture that was neither "al dente" nor squishy. There was a decent crowd waiting when we... More

I stopped in to get a take out order and was greeted by a friendly staff. I ordered some ramen and pot stickers and they were very good. The food came out quickly and I took it home to eat it about 1/2 hour later. It was still delicious. I will be back!
