This is my favorite noodle shop in town! Perfect atmosphere and amazing flavors. Though, I do wish the tables and chairs were a bit friendlier for those with thicker hips and legs :)

Soooooooo good! I’ve heard a lot about this place and finally had the chance to grab lunch here and was not disappointed. It was amazing! This is a great combination/fusion of Thai noodles and Japanese ramen. I was lucky because they had a special that day which is a very authentic and rare Thai dish called Khao Kruk Kapi. The flavor was original! We also had Yentafo noodles and duck noodle soup were very flavorful. For appetizers we had veggie tempura, and fried calamari were huge! They really give you big cuts of calamari. Comparing the quality and quantity of the food to the price, it’s worth every penny. This is the place for Thai noodle soups with authentic flavors and great Japanese ramen choices.

Small little place in a shopping center off 501 in Durham. Had a little hiccup with our service. Took awhile for us to put in an order, then the order got lost. Issue was taken care of. Menu has many things to offer. The Gyoza app is a must! The spicy levels are tricky. Just go with 3, it's more than enough. I did 4 and loved it, but most won't like the heat. The ramen and the drunken noodles were great. Very filling. Broth was delicious. Drunken noodles had a good sized portion.

I've been here a number if times and always enjoy. They invite questions about the menu and are conscientious in preparations for allergens and dietary preferences. I recommend to eat-in because food is so well-presented, hot, and fresh. The uncommon quality is worth navigating the uncommon hours.

We took out kids here to try ramen and we all loved it. Very flavorful dishes. The staff were so kind and helpful. The vibe is laid back with fun decor and very clean. We will definitely be back!
