Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Yummy Noodles and Soup! My partner ordered the Fried Chicken Ramen and I got the Spicy Miso Ramen. We ended up switching since mine was a bit too spicy for me. The portion size was huge and we had to bring the rest home. We...also tried the Kimchi Fries as an app. It was so delicious. I recommend the bubble tea as well! Great for date night. 😄 The vibe felt like I was not in Virginia Beach.More

Let me start by saying the food was average, service was good. The Yakitori was bits of chicken that was not grilled on a coal grill but on a flat top grill and smothered by terikayi sauce. The ramen was underwhelming, the bamboo shoots were...out of a can.More

Had take out here and it was fantastic. We are always looking for places to eat and we are adding Kappo Nara Ramen to our list of go to places. The broth was excellent.

I went back with a friend, is either family or friends that I always bring back to this local hidden gem. I love my ramen but I go nowhere else except here to have the finest ramen. The folks here are nice, food is prepared...and served promptly and the price is just about right, they could adjust prices a bit down to be more competitive. My friend had the house ramen, he loved it, despite the fact that he is a self professed non-ramen eater. Suffice it to say, he was so impressed he promised to come back with his girlfriend. Thus place is a hidden gem. Come in and check it out!More

My daughter and I stopped in for a bowl of noodles. Her first time, I have been a few times before. I had the Kappo Nara House and she had the fried chicken ramen. There was a very good amount of shrimp, clams and scallops....This place is has REALLY good noodles. Also ordered the Oshinko, a side of different pickled vegetables. Having been married for 53 years to a Japanese lady, I think I know a bit about ramen. Will go again, and again.More

This place is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! The menu items we ordered had distinct and savory flavors with large portions. The service was pretty-good considering they had a full house on a Thursday night but the food still arrived reasonably fast and piping hot. The atmosphere of...the Kempsville location was lively yet not too loud. The décor and small size are reminiscent of the “real” Ramen houses in Japan. I would definitely recommend this place if you are seeking a place with delicious authentic ramen.More

My neighbor and I had gone out to dinner and decided to stop at Kappo Nara. It had been a couple of years since we last had eaten here. To our palate pleasure the ramen was just as good if not better than what we...remembered. I had the Shoyu and my neighbor had the Kappo Nara House, both excellent choices and sufficed to say our pallets were satiated.More

This place was recommended to me from a friend that I was stationed with in Germany. I am from a place that has a strong Asian influence and I missed the tastes of home. This place was awesome! My favorite was the hamachi kama. I...would not have thought Virginia Beach would have it! I would highly recommend this place.More

It was a cold rainy day, and I googled ramen, hoping beyond hope that something decent would turn up; little did I know that Kappo Nara was about to enter my life. There's something you can't really describe about scarfing down a hot bowl of...ramen, and exhaling that wonderful steamy breath against a biting winter wind, it truly is magical. Having the genuine article to compare to, I'd say Kappo Nara does a great job replicating some classic broths, and their noodle texture is great, the perfect amount of bite. As you can see in the picture, I got a little too excited and dug right in, but their topping portions are much more generous than displayed here. Give them a shot, they're already a favorite for me.More

Talk about getting some excellent food at a great price! The meal was excellent and the customer service was even better. So happy that our family’s first visit won’t be our last. Check this restaurant out.
