It was a great experience. They only had to options ramen wise, but the one I chose was so good. I was a bit scared because I'm not a big fan of pork, but they made it taste amazing. The portion was also very big.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
