Wanted something warm and quick as it was raining and we were in between events at comic con. They were busy but the dish came quickly enough. The shrimp noodles were delicious. Eat the shrimp tempura quickly before it gets soggy. And there were a...More

There is 2 Japanese cafe on 16th street mall. This place price was more reasonable. They have ramen, bento sets, sushi and bowls. They sell bubble tea too. Not babe portion and valued for money.

I ordered the Shoyu Ramen, Crunchy Shrimp Roll, and Edamame. The Ramen was very good... not as good as Ramen I've had in SF, but still better than most. The sushi was bland and not tasty at all. I didn't try any other sushi there,...More

I ordered the spicy chicken with kim chi ramen (no corn, extra kim chi). I thought my bf and I were going to share it but I had to order my own since he had no desire to share. Add to best cheap eats list.

This is a small restaurant on the busy and funky 16th street in Denver. I found the bubble tea to be too sweet. The flavour I tried was mango and pineapple.

It's not going to win any michelin stars, but you knew that already. It's a cheap takeaway, it does exactly what it says on the tin. Vegegetable Miso Ramen is serviceable enough to satisfy a Taiwanese connoisseur, so i guess it's not too bad.

My wife and I recently visited Denver. While we were there, we planned to hit a few spots that served Japanese food. What a huge disappointment. My wife is Japanese and I lived there for 4 years. She ordered the chicken teriyaki bento box and...More
