Meats were dried out in both the bao buns and ramen. Tonkotsu broth was delicious as were the fried dumplings. Will come back, won’t get the bao buns again… kind of just tasted like the sauce.

Found this restaurant while staying near the airport. The atmosphere was pleasent and customer service was friendly. You order the food upfront and then you sit down. The food came out really quick. I had the Beef Ramen and Beef bun. They were both really good and price was great for the portion. Will be coming back in the near future.

Overall, easy 5 stars. They are fast to take your order, has a great vibe, and the portions are filling for the price! They have free complimentary water at the entrance that is self service. The noodles I tried was actually great, but the chicken was dryer than expected. Overall, would eat there again but probably try pork as a first choice.

Great food and even better staff. We tried the Chicken Curry Ramen(first and second photo as well as the Chicken Katsu,Bang Bang shrimp and the Spring Rolls. The Ramen is coconut milk based and packed with an abundance of flavor. If you’re looking for great Ramen in a quiet atmosphere this is the place.

Self service. Had miso ramen, good tasty broth and noodle texture is very good. prefer the broth to be little bit thicker. Char Siu is little bit on the hard side. Not a lot of veggie.

First time here. Walked in and felt a little weird. The girl that takes the order maybe could smile more or have some greeting. I didn’t know we had to order at the counter which the girl could have said something like “we take your order up here first” or something like that. I wish there was more broth in the bowl. Too much noodle but not much broth. The price was reasonable for the portion of food, flavor of the ramen could be improve. We will return again and hopefully for a better service.

Fresh and delicious made to order dishes. Lots of options and delicious buns. Food came out quickly. Lots of outside seating and parking. Can’t wait to come back. I wish there were more ramen options with the coconut broth base.

This place was pretty cool. I got the curry ramen & a bork belly steam bun. The curry was delicious, I would have loved more broth & less noodles. The pork bun was decent. Customer service was great! Outdoor seating available as well so that was a plus!

Decided to stop here to pick up lunch and I am so excited to have found a noodle spot. The establishment was both clean and gave off a pleasant vibe. The staff was both helpful and courteous. I ordered the Chicken Curry Ramen and the spring rolls. Absolutely delicious. It had the right amount of spice which is great for a person like myself that isn't big on spicy foods. It's definitely worth a try. Totally looking forward to trying out their other dishes.

My husband enjoyed his tofu ramen. My food was average. I wasn't overly impressed. The pork bun was a disappointment! I didn't care for the spring rolls (my husband liked them). The edamame and bang bang shrimp bun were good.

I saw this new restaurant on Instagram and we decided to have a date night before their grand opening. The service was great, the guy at the counter was extremely friendly, and the food was amazing. We are always looking for ramen shops and this place really hit the spot. Be warned, this is not fast food so you may be waiting a few minutes to get your ramen, but it is worth the wait.
