We went there for lunch recently and the restaurant was very busy. However, we didn't have to wait too long for our meals. The ramen was nice and the service was acceptably efficient and good. Will come again.

This is the third ramen restaurant that we had visited in as many weeks. And the good news is that it's right up there with the other two that we dined at. Our first surprise was the line that formed outside Nao about 15 minutes...More

Been here couples of time when I crave for ramen. The miso soup base ramen with char siew and also add ribs to it was wonderful. I like this place as you could customize what sort of extra ingredients you would like to add.

The shop sign was easy to miss but we really tried to look for it because we were craving for japanese food. Did not disappoint. The staff were very enthusiastic and quick with the service. The spicy ramen with black squid ink was mouth watering!

The food was very fast to come out and exceptional quality and quantity. The soups are delicious and huge, I would probably recommend sharing one between two. The fried pork dumplings are to die for, get a serve each.
