Try the Otomo for a spicy, warm your tummy meal! Delicious. Don’t be embarrassed if you turn the bowl up to get every last drop of that broth!

Joy D

The broth was some of the best I have ever had (I uh… drank it out of the bowl) and the pork was perfectly cooked.

Christopher C

Our whole family loves the Chicken Kara-Age, but be warned, you’re kids won’t be satisfied with dry, bland, white-meat only nuggets after they try these.

Leanna M

I have never had authentic ramen and was excited to try it. They did not disappoint. Great atmosphere and staff!

Holee sh… this bowl is a winner. Excellent body to the soup without the stickiness of too much collagen. Pork was soft with a slight crunchy top. Noodles are on point.
