The ramen eats up real nice. One of the better ones in the city. Prices are fair. I recommend this place.

In the mood for ramen, but this isn't one of those authentic Japanese ramen restaurants. Found broth to be hot but bland and noodles just meh. They have a huge menu and happy-hour appetizers if you get there in time. Food is meh-to-average. Not fast food prices: We ordered 2 ramen bowls and had 2 happy-hour apps at $3. each... More

The other listing said Genki Crepes at this address (Clement) and it certainly isn't crepes! My friend and I have been here several times. We love it. He gets the pork ramen, extra hot. It's super savory and delicious. He gets the same thing every time - he likes it that much. I've had the shrimp fried rice and the... More

First time trying ramen and definitely enjoyed. Veggies and noodles were fresh. Ambience was great as was services. Spoke to locals and this was one of the favorite spot and considered hidden gem.

This is one of my fave eateries in SF! I love their mabo tofu ramen as it's spicy, the noodles are perfectly cooked and fresh, and the service is quick.

We were feeling so cold after coming from the Golden Gate Bridge Vista Point and we all thought that a good ramen will be great. We searched for the best ramen in the San Francisco -- Van Ness area -- and our search yielded Genki Ramen so we headed straight to the restaurant. Took us a while to find a... More
