I was hesitant at first but the wife and kid wanted to try it. I'm glad they did. The service was friendly, the place was clean and the food was good. My kid and wife didn't like the seaweed but that may have just been...More

We've tried many Ramen places in South bay and this is our final choice. We don't go anywhere else after we tried Maru Ichi. My favorite is kuro ramen. The soup base is like heaven. If you have a big appetite, you can order the...More

Maru Ichi got off to a rocky start when they first opened, I thought, but the degree to which things have improved since then is really remarkable. Ryowa's loss has been Maru Ichi's gain, it seems, and then some. The signature kuro ramen — "black...More

There are four ramen-only places in Mountain View. This place is OK - VERY authentic - but Ryowa is so much better than I've only been here twice to make sure I like Ryowa better. The broth here isn't really deep enough and one always...More

Perhaps its the black ink, but i'm not a big fan of this noodle style. Friends who liked it said it was good though.
