Ramen Dojo is the real deal - there is always a wait, and it's always worth it. During my most recent visit, the hostess took our orders while we were waiting in line. By the time we were finally seated inside the tiny restaurant, our...More

We went around prime time, 7 PM on a Saturday. The wait was around 45 minutes for a group of 5 but the wait was well worth it. I ordered the popular garlic ramen, which with some extra add-ons comes to around 15$. I'd give...More

Ramen is some of the best I've ever had but the wait is pretty awful, usually about 1 hour. Be prepared to eat fast and leave, they kind of rush you out of the restaurant after paying due to the long line.

I've heard all about the buzz of this place and I was very curios and so on a weekday during a lunch hour just before it opens up, my GF and I waited patiently outside. Food was good! Couldn't complained about the long line bec...More

The food was okay. Not used to the "exotic" ingredients (such as quail eggs) they have. Service was not bad, given that they only had two servers and the place was pretty much packed at all times. Just don't think the 30 min waiting time...More
