Four of us went to Tetakawa Ramen last Saturday night at 530 before the movies. There was already a line waiting ahead of us, but we have our names to the forceful young hostess and she accurately predicted a wait of under 15 minutes. We were pleased to find that the noise level was quite mild considering how crowded it... More

There was a 25 minute wait for our table last weekend at Terakawa, but it was completely worth it. There's a certain awkwardness of being crammed into a tiny vestibule with hungry strangers with waitstaff dancing trays of hot soup through the crowded restaurant. I had the Terakawa Ramen. I usually don't finish the broth in any broth soup, this... More

Call me ignorant, but Philadelphia didn't seem like the type of city to have a vibrant Chinatown. I was proven wrong. During a day trip to Philadelphia, I stopped by Terakawa Ramen for a hearty lunch. I wasn't disappointed. I ordered the signature ramen noodle bowl, and it satisfied me totally. The portion was generous, the noodles tender, the broth... More

While in Philadelphia I noticed this place on apple maps. It has been quite a long time since I last had a "real" bowl of ramen. I was a bit excited walking in since they were packed. The menu included what I would have expected without going too far from the theme. I ordered the Kyūshu ramen and a chashu... More

As a solo traveler it's friendly and great! Place was full of customers but the waitresses managed them /us all well. And they are great at service. Like their Takoyaki.

They definitely have a steady flow of business. The service was very friendly and efficient. We , had two apps, pork buns and seared chicken. We each had a... More

Went for dinner with a couple of friends after never having this style meal. This was a great first experience. I was surprised with how delicious and filling it was. The staff was friendly and very quick. I couldn't have asked for more. Absolutely wonderful.

Ate there alone on a business trip. Sat at the counter and got just a bowl of ramen. It came quickly and was absolutely delicious. Couldn't have asked for a better experience, but I'm pretty sure it was because I was by myself and could squeeze in at the counter. Tiny place and people were definitely waiting for tables -...

I'm a bit of a ramen nut and seek it out whenever I can. I ate lunch here with my family after reading about it in Philadelphia Magazine. It was absolutely delectable. We ordered steamed dumplings, curried chicken, mayu ramen & Terakawa ramen. All were prepared to perfection & were very savory. Prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is cozy. We... More
