What a heavenly meal: The two of us enjoyed a delicious dinner & super great service from Ariel Z. My daughter had just been here 2 days ago so she is a lover of the Ramen here. The only complaint is the less than friendly hostess who could stand to be more pleasant & more accomodating to patrons.
Our Food
We had bowls of rich spectacular tasty Tonkatsu Ramen, fantastic Yakitori Short Rib (tasted like Steak), Yakitori Black mushrooms (just 2 small slices, too salty & way overpriced ), some fresh daily specials of Toro (Salmon belly) & Hotaki (Scallop nigiri) both sweet fresh & excellent.
Just needed another stomach because we finished everything!

This place is definitely a wonderful find. Street parking...no reservations...no texting when table ready...and usually a line to get in. This place rocks....The pork buns were out of this world....really! The sushi was also first class (we got the crabby wasabi and artmex...The Tonkotsu Ramen was delicious!! To top off the dinner had velvety mochi for dessert. Reasonably priced. Good service...very busy...will be back!

This place is always worth the wait. More than likely you're going to wait at least 20 minutes outside before you get your table here and sometimes it's much longer. Their ramen is as good as I have had in the city and so is everything else I've tasted. They offer a ton of bites from the grill that will make you feel like you're walking down the street in a major oriental city, not sitting at a table in chilly Chicago.

all yakitori i ordered - pork belly, chicken breast, gizzard - tasted really good and were seasoned well. Too bad they ran out of chicken skin and hearts. Yakitori balls were good as well.

This is a BYOB resto so people tend to stay longer despite having long lines outside. Serve staff were really nice especially Tyler.

Great ramen and fresh sushi. Try the different variations of toro. Service is good but they do get busy and service has been a bit lax at times but due to the large crowds. Pork belly skewers are a real treat.
