This is a very popular place, expect to wait. The food is worth the wait. I had Miso it was prepared fresh and if sitting at the bar you could watch preparation. We also had potstickers and chicken appetizers both very good, excellent dipping sauces...More

Mostly counter seating, great value and I love watching Japanese TV game shows. I'm a local and usually visit Ryowa on my own, so I do love sitting on the counter. Love their friend chicken and gyoza.

Waited more than 15 minutes to get four seats at the u-shaped bar. Many varieties of ramen with different soup bases. Waitress took our order before we got our seats. It seems each order was prepared individually, time consuming for the kitchen, rather than dropping...More
