    Customize your ramen, more garlic (it's free) or no egg, extra noodles, more spring onion. It's easy to get it perfect with their iPad ordering system. Sake selection at affordable prices.

    Modern, high-tech ramen shop in Little Osaka with iPad ordering for maximum customization. The Soul Ramen is a riff off of traditional tonkotsu.

    The ramen here is amazing. One of my favorite places in LA for ramen. Also it's pretty close to UCLA!

    Tatsu is my favorite noodles place. The service is normally really fast, and the food is the delicious. I love the traditional and the red ramen. ❤️

    One of the best ramen I've ever tasted! The iPad ordering system they have is the coolest! Also, I love how you can customize your own ramen. :) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The red ramen is sweet and savory, one of my fav broths! You can't change up thin noodles for thick ones on the iPad but ask one of the cute male servers and they'll gladly oblige ;)

    Quite a wait to get to the iPad to order, then an additional wait to sit. Decent ramen, but not worth all the waiting. I wouls do takeout, the ambiance wasn't amazing.

    Definitely try the no-broth ramen. It is amazing. iPad ordering stations ate nice - just make sure the waitstaff knows what table you took!

    Press fresh garlic into your ramen. Makes it even MORE awesome. The red, bold, and soul ramens are all excellent.

    Not in the mood for eating out? Check out their online ordering. Works like a charm every time. Parking sucks for take out much of the time so we use the side street nearby and walk a short block.

    As someone who prefers Shoyu ramen to richer tonkotsu ramen, I'm a big fan of the lighter soy-based "hippie" broth.

    Got the soul ramen. While I found the noodles too think the broth was very flavorful. The red rice was great as well

    The bold ramen and old school ramen are both delicious. However, the service can be slow - it took over 25 minutes to get my order one afternoon.

    The naked ramen is great with tofu but the egg was kind of undercooked for me. Also, the breadcrumbs give the noodles a good crunch

    The tonkotsu is solid, but the naked ramen is the perfect summertime order.

    Long wait! Figure out the actual wait time before put your order on the iPad, it was misleading. Some wait after sit down too. Not recommend for a quick meal late night.
