Friendly and popular place, with great ramen and tasty ingredients. Will get warm and loud when the place is full, but this just adds to the location. Worth stopping by if you enjoy ramen!

Went with 3 colleagues last night. Appetizers (poke, pot stickers, shrimp) and main course of ramen bowls were all good. My only issue was the water in my glass tasted a little like miso but not sure why. Quick service.
