We had the ramen and chicken salad and were very happy with the food, serving size and ambiance. The open air seating was especially nice since the restaurant is on a relatively quiet street and the seating is designed to accommodate two people only at...More

I travel for work very often, (flight attendant), and EVERY single time I am in San Diego I make sure I come here. The ramen is so flavorful, the location is great and right in the middle of downtown, the vibe is chill and fun,...More

Great Service. Cool architect. Fantastic food. Sip straight from the bowl. Sit outside or inside or upstairs. The ramen is fresh, the buns are sweet, and selection is good. We stopped by because the sign was funny "reasonably authentic". I am so glad we did....More

I had the pork belly burgers there, along with a beer, and both were really good. The beer in particular was a really unique offering, and really went well with the burgers. The bartender who took my order was friendly and provided some good information...More

I was hesitant at first due to previous reviews about not having spoons. But apparently they provide spoons now so I lucked out. It was pretty good ramen, it was filling. The bun was good too. Worth a stop.

Ramen noddles served with different ingredients to any taste: chicken, tiger shrimp, pork belly. I wish they had a salmon or tuna option. The shimeji mushrooms wrapped in bacon with a sauce are delicious sides or appetizers. Prices are around 12-15 for the entrees. Limited...More

Excellent choice for a bowl of Ramen, prepared fresh and perfect, and choice of a local craft brew. Try the Belly of the Beast ramen for a bowl full of smokey goodness. Can't go wrong with Underbelly ramen either with smoked bacon and pulled pork.

When I️ crave ramen nothing will do but the Underbelly. It is a fun restaurant featuring mostly bar style sitting. It has however a few tables upstairs and outdoor sitting. The ramen is amazing. Perfectly cooked noodles served in the best broth you can hope....More
