Price good, ambience good, service good, food excellent. I have been there a ton. My only issue was one time the chef refused to make my Ramen medium spicy. Got the first bowl and I asked waiter if this looked medium spicy. He agreed with me and sent it back. I then checked out the chef to make sure it... More

This place is terrible. Service and food. They say they have vegetarian ramen, but on a Saturday night at 6:00 they were out. Tables are too close together, no privacy.

Visiting from Miami, son is a Ramen lover. Visiting his favorite Ramen place. Ramen is definitely a comfort food. We all had the Tonkotsu Ramen. Think of grandma's chicken soup w lots of noodles...yummy, but pork broth, even yummier. Good food, good service, extremely reasonable prices. Definitely somewhere to return.

Come here a lot. Always reliable and well priced. Very casual and not for a date. Soups generally good, though vegan one a bit salty. Buns good but dumplings taste soggy.

I had the "basic" ramen, which was much more than just basic. The broth was meaty and flavourful. The noodles were cooked perfectly and the pork was tender. The person I was with ordered the pork cutlet curry (also delicious), which came with a delightful cabbage salad. The waitstaff were attentive and helpful. I would go back again in a... More

The ramen tasted really good. Sometimes the wait is a little long but the ramen is real good. It is a little hard to find a parking space near the restaurant.

I love the spicy ramen here. You can get an additional order of noodles for $1 if you still have broth left. Good for sharing. Broth has great flavor. Restaurant is small. If it's busy, put your name on the sheet by the door and wait your turn. The only way to make this more authentically Japanese is to install... More

All are located off Sepulveda Blvd. Authentically Japanese. Write-up from Mr. Jonathan Gold, fellow UCLA alum, only food reviewer to win a Pulitzer, on the wall.

This is a small rustic Ramen house. It is like the places in Japan I used to go to. The Pork broth is rich and intense. The noodles clean and fresh. The ingredients well done and the styles tradition;.
