Our friends and family are ramen lovers so on a recent visit to Oahu decided that was what we wanted to eat. This restaurant was noted as one of the best in Oahu and it did not disappoint. We are from Seattle and Colorado and this was THE best we have ever had. Three of us had the shoyu ramen... More

Came here for lunch and ordered the mini ramen (hakata flavored) combo which came with fried rice & gyoza. Absolutely delicious. The staff was very friendly & attentive. We waited in line for 30 minutes as it's a very small place, but it was definitely worth the wait!!

We knew we wanted to go to a ramen place while in Hawaii and this was a great one. Even in the mid afternoon we waited for a few minutes to sit down to ice water and a simple menu of different types of ramen with fried rice and/or potstickers if desired. Meal was delicious with about 20 seats in... More

It was my first Ramen and I love it. I had a great meal for$18 and tip included! When I left there was a line outside the door. I am hoping to go back in a few days.

I tasted this for the first time while in Hawaii April/May 2016. This place is small and intimate, the majority of patrons are Japanese (as this is very authentic Japanese food) and the staff goes out of their way to ensure non-Japanese people are happy & enjoying the food. Now, locally, I eat Ramen & Sushi all the friggin' time.... More

Came here for dinner with three friends and spouse. Waited about 20 minutes at 7:15pm. When it's busy you place your order while you wait and your food arrives sooner. Several different ramen broths including miso, shoyu, Hakata, and spicy. We shared Hakata style set including three gyoza for $14. Good comfort food. No liquor license but if you want... More

The place is small but it is a good sign of quality and customer service. I ordered the Miso ramen and it was amazing!! Get there early before you are hungry because there will be a wait time of 15 minutes minimum. Great service and amazing food!!

As above, you always can see the queue outside of the restaurant, and it tells you everything. If you are from East or Southeast Asian countries, try ox tail ramen - you'll love it!
