The food here is so good, especially their japanese char sui. Their house ramen is steller. It always really busy on a Fri/Saturday night, so I usually call for take out and pick it up.

If you want very good ramen soup, this is the place to go. I had the ox tail ramen and surprisingly it was not oily at all. My wife had the seafood ramen and it was very good. It was not fishy. The broth on both soup were great. My daughter had the seafood crispy noodles and my son had... More

There are no frills here, just a garden variety strip mall restaurant. If you're as unsophisticated as I am concerning Asian cuisine, just know that you get noodles in broth, with a protein of your choice. It's really, really good; you get lots of it, at a reasonable price, and the service is fast. What else do you need to... More

I ordered take out from here recently on a Saturday night. I paid for my order - it was a fairly large bill as I was ordering food for about 10 people at home, and as I was leaving, the guy behind the counter said the following to me "don't you want your receipt ......so you can get paid?" It... More

Rai Rai Ramen is one of the more "authentic" ramen restaurants out there. The food is absolutely delicious. Living around here, I come here often, especially in the winter when I can use a big bowl of steamy broth and noodles as comfort food. The decor is very lacking and they only just recently updated their menus--before this, they had... More

As the name implies, this is a ramen restaurant. It is a change of pace from the typical sushi or Benihana style Japanese restaurant that most Americans are accustomed to. Also, this is not your $0.25 supermarket style ramen. These are typically variations on bowls of soy flavored chicken broth with not only noodles, but typically some meat (usually pork),... More

Good food. The waitress communications could be better. Ask specifically for vegetable broth. Lunch times could get busy.

This was my first time to a ramen joint and I must confess I was impressed. The decor was neat and service was prompt. The house ramen that I tried was very delicious and the portion was sumptuous. I am definitely coming back.

Haven't been this restaurant for long time after it reopened. I would say I like it better than before. The renovation made the restaurant brighter and cleaner. Most important, the food seems better than before. Appetizer Mochi Chicken is delicious. Taiwanese chicken rice is still very tasty. Less salt choices made my ramen much better. I would definitely go back... More
