This is a great ramen place with a varied menu. Tonkatsu is delicious--wow that broth!! I was also very impressed with the smoked mackerel, I hadn't had one that good since visiting Kushiro. Everything comes out fast I can imagine some people would be uncomfortable...More

This is the worst Japanese food I've ever had. Absolutely terrible. I left without even finishing. Do yourself a favor and pass on this place.

This hole-in-the wall eatery has very good ramen. The menu is simple and the food delicious. Seating is at a premium. Service is fast and friendly. Lots of folks get their ramen to go. Close to the International District and Chinatown. I'm sure there are...More

The broth was just ok. The contents were bad. Tasted fishy. Not many veggies, the bamboo shoots tasted like tin can. Overall icky. Priced to high for what it was.

Very basic restaurant with only about 16 seats. Limited menu well prepared. No pretenses here. Convenient to light rail stop

My daughter and I enjoyed wonderful ramen last night. The place is super small, but we got right in early on a Saturday night. Very quick, very friendly service, super good noodles.

While on a solo layover in Seattle I stopped in The International District and had the Spicy Miso at Samurai Noodle. It was convenient, comfortable and exactly what I needed on a grey cloudy Seattle afternoon. I will definitely return on my next trip!

Super service, great ramen a must do if you are in the Capitol Hill area. Make sure you you add an egg to your ramen (any), it is fantastic.

Don't let the claustrophobic ambiance fool you. Once they place that steaming bowl of noodles in front of you, prepare for an outstanding ramen experience. I highly recommend the tonkotsu and tampopo.

Coming from Hawaii I have been used to a high quality of Japanese food in the State, was feeling very homesick for it in Washington but this place brought it right back! This was the best bowl of Ramen I've had since my last taste...More
