    Get aburi miso ramen. Green chili shio ramen is alright, only order it if you can take the spice. Juicy fried chicken is pretty good as well! Can be a long wait, expect 40mins to 1 hour at peak hours

    Fantastic ramen. Got the yuzu chili ramen. Noodle texture is amazing and broth is out of this world. Hurts me to say, but better than Ramen Dojo in Norcal

    Broth is clear and refreshing. Can get crowded even on week nights, so expect to wait. The green chili ramen is a must-try. So is their spicy rice.

    This is probably my favorite ramen place right now. Their chashu is super tender and delicious. If you feel adventurous they have a great green chili ramen.

    Noodles made in-house. The line here can fill up really quickly. But this place is solid. Go early if you despise lines as much as I do. It's worth it.

    Black Tonkotsu is the stand out ramen bowl here. What holds back this bowls and other bowls: lack of depth and complexity of broth (you cook the broth for many hours, shouldn't it have more flavors?

    This is by far the best ramen and fried chicken I’ve ever had. Will keep coming back again and again and again.

    Their ramen and popcorn chicken are absolutely a must try! I recommend getting the green chilli ramen or pork ramen.

    The only ramen shop in the area where we consistently get the fried chicken along with the ramen. Excellent.

    If you like spicy, Green chili ramen is the one to order.

    Just order their specialty, Kitakata Ramen. It's enough for the average person. Also worth getting is the karaage.

    Ramen is okay, but too long of a wait. The spicy bamboo shoots were good though.
