I went there with my sister on a Saturday afternoon, so it was not a busy hour. The food was good,although the menu doesn't have a lot of choices in it. The service wasn't that good,and kinda slow (maybe it's just that specific waiter..) Overall- nice place to sit with a friend and eat Asian food.

The noodles were chewy and not at all over cooked. The egg was seasoned and cooked exactly right. Will definitely be returning for more ramen and to try... More

The flavors are the most important thing and they actually do a great job there. We had every kind of bun they offered that day and all were super yummy. Have their salad with chicken as well...

This location was okay, but nothing special. There are nicer places for Asian food in Israel - and cheaper

I visited the bun with my Japanese friends. The bun serves almost perfect Japanese-style ramen. It was very tasty and we enjoyed it.
