Was staying just down the street, so strolled over to this pedestrian mall to look for a place to eat. There were lots of options in the area, but this place seemed to have the most action on an otherwise quiet Wednesday evening. Even though the place was almost full, I was warmly greeted at the door and given the option to sit at the dining bar. Ordered the House Ramen, which was really delicious. The ingredients tasted fresh and of high-quality. Received many friendly smiles from the various staff as they passed by. Really enjoyed the food and felt very welcome, even though I was dining alone that night!

Hinodeya has some of the best ramen I've had in a while. The house ramen uses an unusual dashi-based broth, with plenty of kombu and dried scallop for extra extra umami. The noodles are flavorful and super "snappy". The house ramen came with two fat slices of house-made char siu, which was fatty and delicious. Truly a first-class bowl of ramen.

The service was very nice and very fast as well.

My friend that lives in the City recommended this new ramen restaurant. She said it was the best in the City and I actually would have to agree. There was a wait that had us standing outside for awhile (bring a coat). It is definitely worth the wait. The environment is casual, a little cramped, but comfortable enough. The staff is very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The menu had a good selection of choices from starters, beers, sake to the main dish. Portions are very good so we didn't have room for dessert, which is available. I highlyrecommend Hinodeya.

Quite typical Japanese ramen. Thick soup for chicken ramen, and very light soup for the housemade signature ramen. There are two small wings in the chicken ramen with some seaweed and one half egg. I wish they would offer spicier bowels of ramen instead of the 3 non-spicy alternatives. Customer service was very nice. It was welcoming and friendly.

Don't wain in line at Mensho. Instead, head for Hinodeya.
First of all, Hinodeya's ramen is much much better, the broth and the noodle are much superior than Mensho.
Second, the wait is not long. I would'nt wait for Mensho's ramen even it's free.
Third, they do not charge automatically the service charge and you receive better service.
Fourth, we do not have to rush to enjoy the food like Mensho.
Finally, their menu has more dishes than just ramen. The fried Hiroshima oysters were also delicious.
So, Hinodeya is the answer to get the best ramen in San Francisco.
(I didn't check all Hakata style ramen places because I don't like tonkotsu broth.)
