What a wonderful group of helpful and dedicated staff members advising and serving delicious, honestly good and wholesome food.

A real treat. At staff's suggestion, we sharedThe Belly of the Beast Ramen Bowl, Shrimp Gyoza with black mushrooms, chicken wings, and Tatake Tuna with a lovely craft beer and a Tobarashi inspired gin and tonic.

So well conceived and prepared. Wonderful and caring staff.

Thank Gary M

Amazing!!!! Amazing!!!! Amazing!!
All I can say! And the staff is so so friendly it's really noticeable. Menu is simple but the flavors of the food bowl are delicious. I had a Seedy Side Ramen. Nice corner spot with inside and outside cute seating. Totally would come here for a date nite.

As I was taking a stroll with my family down Fir St, we came across a contemporary looking restaurant and decided to stop by. The staff was very welcoming and offered an amazing experience. I sat down with my family at the bar area and ordered one bowl of ramen to share with three people. I decided to try the Belly of the Beast Ramen Bowl. The bowl is portioned evenly and given the right amount of food.

"Belly of the Beast" is an all time favorite. Tender pork belly, ox tail dumplings and a fantastic broth coupled with perfectly prepared noodles make it the best ramen I've had in the US. Unique windows that fold down into tables make for a great indoor/out door dining experience. Oh.... they have a great beer menu and very knowledgeable and friendly wait staff. Just go...

It's certainly a different way to approach your eagerly anticipated meal, waiting in a long hallway, not sure what was going on - but man oh man- when your food came it was just the best. HOT, as in spicy! well priced starter plates, all delicious. Unique, busy place. Also great people watching at open windows.
