I used to had very similar ramen to this one in Costa Mesa, which it was my favorite one.. The ramen was very very good! and the place is very fast serving. Because it is a popular place so there are always customers waiting! That's a very good sign~ Only the problem for me is, Fullerton is too far to... More

My brother and I were in town for a concert and looked up some ramen places in the area. This one popped up on the top lost and wasn't too far away so we headed down. Luckily, we got there just in time as there were some seats at the bar, soon after there was a line outside the door... More

This place is closer to Asian area. The name is not attractive, but the ramen tastes good for sure. Picture is not as good as the taste. I will recommend it to friends.

This was my family's first time to this ramen place. First of all, the prices are fair. The portions are good and the ramen isn't too salty. That's an issue with some of the ramen places I've been to before. There are plenty of spices and stuff ok the table that we can add to enhance the flavored to taste.... More

This is a small place near Cal State Fullerton. This is authentic Japanese noodle dishes. This is the type of place that you would find in the small towns of Japan. Good food, very reasonable prices. Beside their delicious noodle dishes, they have katsu and curry and other dishes.

This is really a little hole in the wall type restaurant neat CSUF, that my daughter and I tried out. If you like Pho, then you will really like this place, as it is similar with a Japanese twist. The food is fresh, and made right in front of you sushi bar style. Very friendly and happy staff. This place... More

My frequent trips to Pieology got me curious about this ramen establishment that was always buzzing next door. I found them to be the most popular of ramen places in a 20 miles radius (even though there's only two others). So, I checked them out. Having been here a handful of times, I can confidently say the ramen is pretty... More

I was delightfully surprised when we walked into What's Up...I always pass by and thought it was just a pay up front place and when we walked in, it was a cute, small sit down restaurant with nice seating and really authentic food and real Japanese chefs. Lots of ramen to choose from, really fast service, and a huge line... More
