First time I have eaten Champon and really enjoyed it! It is a big bowl of noodle soup with veggies, meat and seafood. Great comfort food. The second time, I had yakasoba noodles which I also enjoyed. It is a good sign to see a lot of Japanese eating at the restaurant. Wish there were similar restaurants at home. Prices were also reasonable.

There were very few people in the restaurant at 1 pm on a Tuesday. The waitress threw the menus at us upside down. Chashu Ramen came with thick, dry, cold pork slices on top. They tasted as if they had come straight out of the refrigerator. The Saraudon was an unusually distasteful eating experience, a number of ingredients carelessly thrown together.The waitress asked if everything was alright, We told her that we were not enjoying the food. She brought some complimentary warabi mochi and ice cream, which tasted like taro. Not a place to return to!

,One of our favorite go-to places. Order the thin, crispy noodles called Saraudon, light & delicate gyoza, tasty chicken karaage, and of course, the ramen they call Champon. Heavenly green tea ice cream is the perfect ending. It's a must try if you've never had this type of food. A family favorite.

I usually order their nagasaki saraudon here. It is all natural noodles made of a blend of flours. It is thin, crispy noodles (the crunch is just right). They have a perfect sauce to go with it and top it with fresh vegetables and chicken. It is quite filling, but also healthy and low in calories.

Its a fun place to go for a casual dinner, good food, and OK service. They have other things on their menu as well. You can order the above by itself or order it with something else like Gyoza.

Parking is in the lot by the restaurant; place can get busy especially on week-end dinner time.

This restaurant has a many variety of Champon(Noodle with a sea food based soup) and Japanese foods. I used a lot because they open lunch thru dinner. I recommend champon, miso champon and sara udon(Like Hong Kong style chow mein). You can take out or buy noodles there. Just off Saratoga Avenue, between Payne and Williams.
