Foursquare Tips

  • don't ask for a fork.. come on, you can do it!
  • They charge extra to make your ramen spicy, so save the spicy dipping sauce from your dumpling appetizer and add it to your ramen.
  • Try the pork buns. They are so good.
  • BEST place ever!!!! Must stop here at least once and you will then know that you'll be back! :)
  • Pork buns and the snow pear sakatini. A perfect meal.
  • vegan options if that's your thing. the ramen broth tastes strongly of seaweed which could be too much for the uninitiated. a "garlic bomb" for $1 extra can offset that flavor, enough for 2 bowls.
  • Nice atmosphere, good service, food tastes like Taipei ;-)
  • Patio is amazing! And food is always good!
  • Beef buns are out of control. Miso ramen was good, the egg was a nice touch. Poke was pretty average. Great dumplings! Oh, and good drinks!
  • Pork buns, pork dumplings, tonkotsu ramen with pork belly is the way to go with a saketini or O-cha mark
  • The shrimp and pork dumplings were amazing. I couldn't believe that the Tonkatsu Ramen was even better. Best ramen I've ever had.
  • The buns are great. Great service. Get a spicy bomb with your ramen bowl, comes on the side and you add to taste.
  • Any of the ramen are all good!
  • The buns beat the dumplings
  • All of the dumplings and buns are so good, specifically the pork buns.
  • Pork buns. Dumplings. Nice specialty drink selection too.
  • Loved the buns. Spicy bomb in the ramen is a must. If someone wants to share, tell them to get their own.
  • I've only been here for brunch or late night cocktails & apps but it's been perfect no matter what.
  • Great fusion food! Dumplings are great, so is the Ramen!
  • My wife said vegan dumplings are great). A great place to get Asian fusion! Can't go wrong with pork Ramen, but check what's on the special 1st.
