Enjoyed a bowl of Roast Pork Ramen (#21) and its spicy version (#31). Ramen noodle is great & just right, but the best part is the stew/soup that comes with it. Cash only, like all stalls at Mitsuwa. Looking for a vacant table is a challenge but part of the experience :-) .

Bottom Line: Just OK but I probably won't be back. Details: We've been visiting off and on for a few years and only eaten in the food court twice before at other restaurants but weren't very satisfied. Never eaten here (or had "real" ramen) so I decided to try since the reviews were much better than the other places. We... More

After reading such good reviews about this place I could not wait to try it since my favorite ramen restaurant (Ani Ramen in Montclair) is small and usually fill to capacity with a 45-minute waiting time or longer. So I drove for nearly 1-hour to reach Santoka for lunch today and .... perhaps my expectations were too high but I... More

I have had way better Ramen in Burbank, CA and nyc. I was really looking forward to trying this place out, but my ramen was very undercooked. Maybe because the line was so long, they didn't have time to cook my noodles. I was really disappointed.

Drove 2 hrs. to try this much heard ramen place in a food court setting within this Japanese grocery store. Definitely worth the drive since this is by far the best ramen soup I have had. I got the spicy ramen which has this awesome broth, slices of pork belly, generous amount of firm & flavorful ramen noddles. It gets... More

This ramen was very good, although it is not my favorite ramen (I don't think it's better than the top NYC ramen restaurants). The miso spicy ramen is my favorite, with extra melty pork! Delicious. I'm sad they don't do take out (won't give you a take out container), and it is cash only. The ramen is 12 or 13... More

Best ramen at Mitsuwa Market. After a long and tiring flight I was in the mood for Japanese, so we decided to grab a bite here. My family ordered here while I ate from the restaurant next door, which I immediately regretted after trying what they ate! Will definitely order from here next time. The hiyashi chuka and shoyu ramen... More

Oh what a great Japanese restaurant. I came here with my co-workers and I liked it so much that I told my husband I will take him out on a date. My great excuse to eat there again :) seriously this is a great restaurant along the Hudson River in Edge Water, NJ

These are really delicious! We try to get to Mitsuwa as often and get these ramen all the time! They are yummy and never fail to disappoint! Must try if you are a ramen lover! There is always a line even on weekdays and expect to wait 30+mins or more during very busy weekends.

I've come here dozens of times when shopping Mitsuma and love it every time. All their bowls are delicious and very filling. Definitely a must go if you are there.
