Outstanding ramen charming staff a real call out for Naples. Maybe the best place to eat in Naples. The venue is pretty basic but that is part of its charm.

Cannot wait to go back and try everything on the menu. We had the salmon maki roll, and classic ramen, best I have had in a long time. We are in Naples from Napa Valley and this place is fantastic! Everything from the wine list, to the amazing sushi, the atmosphere, and staff is top notch. Very fun and welcoming environment, and we sat at the bar watching Chef Koko create. It was so relaxing and fun, a true art form and incredibly delicious.

Namba is a pretty standard venue in a strip mall; however, the Ramen was solid. I was taken to Namba for lunch and was seated promptly. Ramen came quickly and was very tasty. The broth was silky. Noodles where al dente, the sliced beef was somewhat overcooked but other than that, perfectly balanced meal. In and out in less than 20 minutes.

This place is the real thing. If you are fond of delicious, refined and definitely Japanese food, then you are exactly where you should be. First, when you enter you are welcomed by big, warm smiles. Then you get seated, and then you meet Poe, (pronounce like Edgar Allan Poe), a very pleasant young man who is so very helpful.
The place is very simple, which I like very much, spotless, with light color wood tables, and very sunny! The menu is typically Japanese and focuses on the small plates, and the Ramen. It is pretty difficult to decide what you want to eat, because everything sounds so great. That when Poe was so helpful, telling you all you need to know.
So, we started with one serving of Negi Toro that we split, this is in the Maki Roll section, and are little sushi rolls with extra fresh, melting in your mouth, tuna. The second dish was black angus tenderloin on skewers so full of flavor that I can still taste it! My husband loves Ramen, he chose the beef Hayashi Ramen which he could not get enough of. He looked ecstatic! We still had to taste something else : he chose the Rock shrimps Tempura, and I had the Wagyu Beef Gyoza: this is one of the most fantastic dumpling I ever had, and I don't say that lightly! I had lots of dumplings in my life, but not one came even close to those..... They show one single dessert on the menu, but, believe me when I say that : YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT!!! It is an incredible creme brûlée infused with green tea, another little wonder, so tasty, so light, so creamy delicious that you feel like one will never be enough! you can share every single little plate, and you also can order as you go, which is great so you can taste a lot of different dishes, and you will feel like doing just that!
As you can see, we absolutely loved the food, the ambiance, the simple decor, the waiter and waitresses who also bring your food with those great smiles, and I forgot to mention as one more refinement, the different plates for each dish, and those very sweet little wooden spoon to eat your creme brûlée with.
The fact that everything is made from scratch gives to each dish a freshness, a deliciousness and flavors you can't taste anywhere else. I have been to Japan, and I can tell you that everything you eat IS the real thing! We will go back as often as we can!
