This was my 2nd time to Matsuchan. It's a tiny place in Canton. This time my girlfriend ordered today's special which was noodle soup, fried pork chop came with a big bowl of rice and salad. And I got octopus balls which I got addicted in Japan and Taiwan and steamed shrimps dumplings. All the food were good but if... More

A very typical small restaurant you would find in every small town in Japan but in US? This is a rare find. I have lived in NYC and LA (Torrence) where huge Japanese communities are but I know no place like Matschan in neither. A good deal with generous serving size but for a Japanese in a foreign country, this... More

come to matsuchan if you are craving for ramen or udon. good selection of noodle soup. it is a mom and pop shop with authenticity of making ramen. they have some other rice menu such as fried rice, beef bowl. note that the place is very small and not kids friendly.

Wow. This place was TERRIBLE. Let me start off by saying that I've lived in Japan for 18 years and I'm half Japanese. I've eaten ramen easily over 500 times in my life at various locations in Japan. This is one of the worst ramen I've ever had in my life. The soup was thin but salty. The dumplings tasted... More

I went for the first time and thought it was pretty good, the food was reasonably priced and the portion sizes were very large (at least for the ramen). I would definitely recommend trying the place out.

I was very impressed that we got real Ramen in MI,USA. The recommended dish is Tonkotsu Ramen, noodle with a pork bone broth. Ramen is the national food of the Japanese. Enjoy!!

It's a rather small space tucked into the corner of a strip mall, and if the predominantly Japanese clientele is any indication, it's authentic. You get huge bowls of Ramen noodles with various additional meats and veggies as well as all meat (beef) or chicken/egg/pork dishes stir fried with onions etc., and a big bowl of rice. The beef I...

If you ever watched The Ramen Girl with Brittany Murphy in it, you're going to want to try a Japanese Noodle restaurant. If you're like me, you can't afford to go to Japan....so this is the next best thing. Matsuchan has pretty good ramen.
