The noodle dish we had were so delicious and consoling after a very cold afternoon in Portland. We were so hungry and the ramen bowls arrived before the hot sake - a first. Will try to think of a reason not to eat here every...More

The noodle dishes are enormous so bring your appetite. The set menu maybe too much for anyone other than big men. I had Hamayaki which was great but too rich to finish. Lovely ambiance and great waitstaff

The ramen was good, but the pork buns were amazing! Good drink menu. Small place, cozy vibe. There will likely be a wait, but there are other bars in the area and they'll text you when the table is ready.

We had the Brussels sprouts and the hokkaiyaki, which were both very good (the sprouts especially). We also enjoyed some beers off the menu, which we really enjoyed. After all that, we thought the ramen was subpar, particularly my miso broth which lacked taste. I...More
