Absolutely delicious ramen. Very flavourful, lots of meat, and the gyoza were super yummy as well. Service was quick and efficient, and even though there was a big line it moved quickly. Excellent value for money too.

So I tried the terriyaki chicken and rice bowl for lunch yesterday with a co-worker. Because I have a strict diet I asked for the egg on the side. The rice and chicken were prepared very nicely. Lacked a little bit of flavor, but they had soy and ginger sauces to add that made it very tasty. I will visit... More

Just had the most delicious Oxtail ramen EVER IN MY LIFE!!! The gyoza was also out of this world!! This place is quaint and cute nothing modern or upscale but you will find there is a line to get in here and let me tell you it is worth it! Thanks again for the great food!

This was the first time I had tried Ramen. The place was very busy but the lime moves fairly quick. watch your food being cooked from start to finish. I retired to this place many times during my stay on the Island. The price of the food was way below what I expected to pay for such great tasting food.... More

Not going to go indepth too much since a lot of positives have already been said about this place. Very good Spicy Ramen & unbelievable ox tail Ramen. Gyoza wrapping was light & not thick like other joints. Fried rice good...sticky & w/msg. I'd definitely come back.

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
