I have been to this family-oriented place in Kearney Mesa for lunch twice, and had a very pleasant time both times. Lunch menu is designed for quick service. Location: strip mall on busy Convoy St near Balboa Ave. Mall parking limited; street parking looked tight....More

The wife and I were craving some good ramen and decided to try this place. Wonderful flavorful broth. I got mine spicy and man was it good. Get fried garlic on your ramen. Soo good.

I have had 3 types of ramen there and the dumplings are excellent. When I need my ramen fix Tajima is the #1 contender in SD.

The food here was really really delicious. My family stumbled upon it by accident and we enjoyed every single item that we ordered - various ramen bowls, garlic edamame, pork dumplings and octopus fritters. It was the ramen that we compared all of the other...More

Tajima Ramen was pretty good. What we wish could been better was the wait. The shop doesn't offer a whole lot of seating. If you have a large group, you only have two options - which means you're waiting around for 2-4 small tables to...More
