One of my favorite Ramen places. Very authentic and tasty. Love they have small, add on dishes. Tried the cold noodles this time, it was excellent. Did not disappoint. They only take CASH, so don't forget.

I really enjoy the ability to get a ramen combo. I can always take the leftovers to-go for lunch the next day. They are a good value item, especially if ramen or just soup is not quite enough for you. If you have a party...More
