This is a small restaurant and seeing a line up is not unusual. But the staff move people fast by taking your order while you are lining up. You get decent portion size with good soup base. There are quite a few competitors in the...More

If you like ramen, this is definitely the place for you. They do it up right! And it's always busy, so you know that's a good sign. They give you a very good-sized portion of ramen as well.
