There’s always a line but when we went it was not packed. Cash only! We shared a bowl combo and were very full for around $20.

Some of the best ramen I’ve had anywhere. It’s been three years since I’ve been to Honolulu but our first stop off the plane was Ramen Nakamura. They are incredibly consistent: excellent broth, noodles have the perfect “bite” and it’s one of the best bargains...More

Get there early, but it's worth the wait. The lines can be wrapped long. Small place but cozy and homey. Cash only!

We're spoiled for ramen because we live in Vancouver, Canada, where we have almost as many ramen restaurants as Starbucks outlets. The ramen here is good but very expensive. Get your noodle fix at Marukame Udon instead, just a few blocks away.

My husband and I loves to eat ramen. We saw Ramen Nakamura with 4 stars rating and since it's very close to our hotel, we gave it a shot. I ordered spicy ramen - not bad. It's just ok (but will not order it again)...More

A friend of ours recommended this place to us. We thank him for that. It was seven of us and we all ordered something different. Everyone enjoyed their ramen. We will definitely be back here. Thank you.

Delicious ramen, pleasantly surprised by the amount of ox tail in my dish! Finding parking is difficult, ended up skipping dinner plans there one night when we couldn't find parking. Picked up for lunch instead the next day, called ahead and food was ready after...More

Yes, they have vegetarian options. Just for future consideration, did you look at their website? Did you look at reviews and do a search for "vegetarian"? You may find this a good way to get an answer in the event that you... More
