Great place for ramen in Philly! Try the chicken Katsu! Egg perfectly cooked. Great Japanese soda! Centrally located downtown near everything in Philly.

Small restaurant, was extremely busy, 30 minute wait for a table but worth it. They do not take reservations.

For me as a Ramen lover I have to say that Terakawa is my favorite place to visit when in the city of brotherly love. The pork bone broth is such a satisfying meal especially during cold weather that I can't pass it up when...More

A Ramen bowl cost about $9 - $14. We usually also get a bunch of appetizers too. Last time, we paid about $60 for 3 people.
