Found this place around the corner from my hotel. Conveniently located downtown. First..it is always busy, but of the 6 times I have been there we sat right away. Tasha is always quick to take your order. The food for me has always been plentiful and reasonable in cost. I find myself going to here twice a day...

Very warm as is the AC was broken. Crowded with slow service. I'm not sure what I was expecting from word of mouth reviews, but I was thoroughly underwhelmed.

I love noodles - not fancy atmosphere - but good food. Went with a friend and we were both surprised at how good the noodle soups were. Right downtown Carlisle.

I have never had anything here that was less than excellent. Service is quick and they treat their regulars well. This place also has a store in Lancaster and will be opening up another one in Harrisburg. I can't think of a better family or restaurant that deserves the success they have garnered.

The food was good and servers were attentive. They have been busy each time we have been there. The tables are kind of close making for a noisy atmosphere.

Food was good and hot. Service was terrible. Had to keep reminding the server that we all wanted something to drink. Atmosphere was very noisy and felt somewhat dirty. Table felt greasy.

Very much enjoyed the delicious food and atmosphere. Busy place=good food :) On a mission to find good, authentic, non-Americanized ethnic food and this place is one of our new top finds!

To be honest, I did not have high expectations for a Raman place in small town central Pennsylvania, but I was very pleasantly surprised by Issei. We went there with my son following a family event at Dickinson College, and had a genuinely enjoyably meal. The broth bases of the noodle bowls were well balanced and refined, and the noodles...

The food is really very good. Best pho I've had and I have tried it in many locations. I only gave 4 stars because of how busy the restaurant is. Not really the fault of the owners. It's because business does so well.

Thank Courtney M
