This was the first any of us (group of 4) had Ramen. We had a Meso based dish and shrimp appetizer. I thought all the food was very good. We did not have to wait long for anything but it appeared to be a slow...More

I don't get why this place charges $18 for a bowl of ramen while it's competitor and even well known ramen place in Manhattan charges only $12. It's portion of pork is larger but I felt overall mediocre in taste. It's service was good, pleasant...More

With the overnight snow and a cold Sunday morning, we opted for a hot ramen brunch. Chef's Special Ramen has an excellent broth, light and not spicy. Ramen noodle is firm, moist, flavorful mixed with that heavenly pork belly, very tender and butter pork fat!...More

I had never tried a ramen restaurant before, so I was a little lost on the menu. The pork in black garlic sauce was good. Spider buns and eggplant buns had a lot of flavor. Small place and very busy.

My 8-year-old son and I went on a trip together and saw this place reviewed online. We’d never had real Japanese ramen before but wanted to try something new. We both loved it! The servers were friendly and attentive as the food was absolutely delicious!!

Stopped in for a late dinner and was glad to have ordered a special--vegetable curry ramen bowl. My bowl was a bounty of flavor. Excellent service and a welcoming space.

I was expecting servicable fast food but this place was more than that. Small space, but with lovely wood (or bamboo?) line walls was very pleasant. Raman was yummy, with may varieties. We loved the buns, we had the eggplant but I bet they'd all...More

There is a first time for everything - it was my first ramen! I ordered the house special, which comes with a whole bunch of stuff i can't pronounce (or spell). I loved the broth, apparently it takes them 24 hours to make it. The...More
