Ramen here is yummy. It's not the cheapest. However it's tasty, quick and the service is good. Whatever you do, don't ask for hot water or tea. There ain't no hot water at this place.

The ramen at Yakitori Yakyudori is outstanding. Enjoy sitting at the bar and watching the Chefs out everything together. Great service too. Can't wait to go back.

We eat here quite regularly and their tonkotsu ramen is delicious. So is the spicy miso. They have yakitori in the evenings and we enjoy buta bara (pork). Avoid regular dinner hours because they're super busy. We try to come early or late to avoid...More
