Hands down one of Buffalo’s most authentic Asian experiences. Broths are diversified and changing. Extra ingredients are complex and satisfying choices to add to the starter broths. Everything is freshly prepared and made to order, including light and succulent dumplings. Excellent also for vegetarians. SATO...More

Went here with my husband and a friend for dinner while visiting Buffalo and was very pleased with the meal. I will say the seating is limited so if you aren’t about making new friends and sharing a table with strangers, you might be less...More

Can only review the ramen, haven't had any rice bowls. Great taste, good portions, extremely casual seating (as a good thing!), and very friendly staff. You basically are right in front of the kitchen, so the workers keep a reasonable tone to their own conversations.

This is a much needed addition to the UB south campus area. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Fast service, fresh ingredients, and just a cool place. Lots of choices on the menu.

Very much like a Noodle shop in Japan. Share a table or eat from the counter. No backs to chairs (very typical of Japan). Parking can be a problem, limited to street parking and also across from UB. Food is delicious! Fresh ramen noodles, hot...More
