Every time I've visited, the food here is chef's kiss. The ramen is some of the best I've had in the triangle area, and their garlic soy wings are 👌🏼. Service sometimes is a little bit slow, but nothing that takes away from the experience. The place is tiny, so we always try to get there as early as possible (around 6/6:30pm and we still wait but no longer than 30 minutes).

This is probably one of the best places to eat in Durham. They don't take reservations, but it's worth the wait because everything on their menu is just that good. We will definitely be back.

This place is fantastic!! Worth a short to medium wait. Ideal for parties of 4 or less, but there is some flexibility for maybe 6. It’s a hole in the wall place and it is small so plan smart! :) The food is to die for. The garlic soy chicken is incredible! And the pork buns were worth it too. I got the regular ramen but tried my partners and I’ll ge the spicy next time. The coconut sorbet is a MUST!

If you get a chance go here! Food and service was above and beyond wonderful! Rookie, Dillon and Kaley went that extra mile to help us as the inside was full and there where 8 of us. Rookie the chef actually brought little tables and chairs to seat us which was super sweet and very cool! Anyway go here and the Ramon I would also give 5 stars! Thank you guys and gals at the M Kokko!

One of the best casual gems of Durham! Great service (but be prepared to wait for 20 minutes for your food). I got the yuzu collins for drink, I have to report someone finally figured out how to make a delicious, flavorful, but not too sweet drink! I loved it. Here are my suggestions: When in doubt, have the chicken sandwich. If you can tolerate, always opt for the spicy one. The noodles in this picture is the black bean chicken noodles, absolutely delicious, filling, and earthy! (I wish they had a larger space or more tables, but maybe that is the charm of this place)

The vegan options are delicious and definitely worth the price! I've had the Biang-biang noodles and the Japanese curry udon, both delicious and generous portions. It's a very small place so it can be hard to get seated if it's peak dinner time, a weekend, or if you have a party larger than 2. It's worth the wait though!
