Not quite the same experience as the shoulder-to-shoulder noodle houses of Japan where businessmen and workers on a quick break slurp down a piping hot bowl of noodles. If you are in the mood for a bowl of noodles however, they have all the standard...More

We noticed this place while travelling and the kids love ramen & pho soup, so we felt it would be a nice change from the American restaurants we visited while on vacation. We walked in and had immediate service. The staff were really helpful with...More
