This is good ramen. Not great but good. I heard this was authentic Japanese ramen but it is not. Kind of reminds me of what I make at home but amped up. Great atmosphere. Good service. Very social and busy. Be prepared to wait.

Loved the ramen in this place. Even though they did forget a couple of the extra ingredients we ordered for our ramen, it's such a busy, bustling little place, I can see how mistakes could easily be made. The menu is tiny, but they definitely...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our ramen from Daikaya. I had the spicy (pic) and hubs had the miso, and we both added pork belly for $3. We first tried to stop in a little after 8pm on a Friday, and the wait was 45 min. It...More
