  • Diana A.Delicious yakisoba, ramen, Japanese curry. Very homemade feel, like visiting your aunt 😉.

  • 板津 魁.My best ramen to go spot in sf! It's casual and home style the ramen is okay but I like the waitress who are all friendly. Sanma grill is good when they have it on the menu

    55555 by 板津 魁.


  • Wilson JNo frills joint where we focused on the ramen which were large portions of hearty, tasty broth w/ good ingredients. The curry chicken tonkatsu particularly hit the spot.

    55555 by Wilson J


  • Adam MoreRamen worthy it's current foursquare rating 6.5/10. Not particularly good at all, would only eat if I was desperately craving ramen and didn't have any other choice.

    33333 by Adam More


  • Matt R.Although the meat here can be hit or miss, their noodles and broth are great. I would recommend going with the Shio Ramen over the more popular Tonkotsu.

    55555 by ®yka- 승.


  • SolarioGreat traditional, no-frills ramen. Ice ice ice cold Sapporo and Kirin on tap. Cheap happy hour beers.

    55555 by Solario


  • Carmen IbarraMiso Chashu Ramen had great flavor... Better than Karamiso Chashu Ramen (spicy one). Avoided sushi because of low health inspection score.

    33333 by Carmen Ibarra


  • Reed JonesDon't tell everyone you but this place is really tasty.

    55555 by Reed Jones

    55555 by Benjy W.


  • Jason K.Try their curry, very good.

    55555 by Jason K.

    55555 by H K.


  • Sriram KrishnanThe fried pumpkin appetizer is grand. We ordered it twice!

    55555 by Sriram Krishnan

    55555 by Natasha R.


  • Chris CastleShoyu ramen is excellent!

    55555 by Chris Castle


  • Kyle M.Terrible ambiance, but the spicy miso ramen is class. Grab some dinner here after checking out Japantown or before catching a movie at Sundance Kabuki.

    55555 by Kyle M.


  • Jessica C.Mouse sighting by the big party tables! Put this one on the no go mouse restaurant list. :(

    33333 by Jessica C.


  • Jessica C.They changed the menu and raised the prices! $7 for 7 gyoza, no sausage, and a long list of Americanized sushi rolls. Whaaa??? Ramen menu hasn't changed much at least.

    33333 by Jessica C.


  • Anthony C.Enjoy a Sapporo and a fantastic bowl of ramen served by the friendly staff.

    55555 by Anthony C.


  • vycandyWhy oh why i didnt come here to read the review & to get Karamiso 😞. Kyushu was sooo bland... 😭😭

    22222 by vycandy


  • Bkwm J.Pork flavor soup ramen, not bad. Sad they don't have soft boiled eggs (the waitress said most non-Japanese people don't like it, how is that possible? 😤)

    22222 by Bkwm J.


  • Bkwm J.Grilled squid legs, pretty good! 😋

    55555 by Bkwm J.


  • Bkwm J.Salmon & hamachi sashimi

    55555 by Bkwm J.


  • Anna M.Amazing ramen, and huge portions. Be sure to bring a to-go container if you want to take your leftovers, as they don't have their own to-go containers!

    55555 by Anna M.


  • Kyle M.Best gyoza.

    55555 by Kyle M.


  • Sefi K.Admittedly there isn't a huge selection, but this is probably the best ramen in SF

    55555 by Sefi K.


  • Kristina P.Karamiso Ramen is the best! (spicy!) Another favorite is the Won Ton Ramen.

    55555 by Kristina P.


  • Andrew W.Don't get the Kyushu ramen. Literally tasted like a bowl of salt and mediocre noodles. Gyozas were good though.

    22222 by Andrew W.


  • Bart CYou can get vegetarian broth in your ramen.

    55555 by Bart C


  • Neil E.Try the Miso-Ramen - Great broth and a full bowl. I'll be back for more #ramen!

    55555 by Neil E.


  • Aaron B.Avoid making "miso sorry" jokes. Just... just don't do it.

    22222 by Aaron B.


  • Karen K.Add karage to your ramen! It's very well done here, not too much breading.

    55555 by Karen K.


  • Billy S.Karamiso is good but not the best

    55555 by Billy S.


  • Shayne S.Try the Ankake Ramen.

    55555 by Shayne S.

  • Kameron K.Always get chashu with your ramen

    55555 by Kameron K.


  • Lillian R.Kyushu ramen

    55555 by Lillian R.


  • Natalie B.If you sit at the door, make sure the portable heater is running. The ramen will definitely help warm you too. The moyashi ramen is very satisfying and has a ton of bean sprouts.

    55555 by Natalie B.


  • Anthony W.The Agedashi Tofu had a gelatinous covering, which was kind of strange. Everything else was fine.

    22222 by Anthony W.


  • K.Adam W.You can make any of the ramen dishes into spicy (karamiso) ramen if you ask—get the wonton ramen with spicy broth, it is superb

    55555 by K.Adam W.


  • Jany L.Love the karamiso ramen, although its not spicy enough for me hehe

    55555 by Jany L.


  • ginny h.I say this every time. Delicious ramen really shitty service that makes u mad.

    55555 by ginny h.


  • Colin Z.Beware the 2:35 arrival. Closed 2:30-5:30 and sticklers about it.

    22222 by Colin Z.


  • diana c.I love the ja ja men. It's cold. It's supposed to be that way. Or you can get it warm. Wash it down with hot clear broth soup or plum wine if you're into a sweet buzz.

    55555 by diana c.


  • Jegan C.The staff here is extremely rude, and the food is definitely not worth the wait.

    33333 by Jegan C.


  • Jane J.Notched spoons that don't fall into the bowl. Brilliant!

    55555 by Jane J.


  • Ritesh N.curry over rice no no

  • Jennifer K.Try the Karamiso Ramen - So nommy! (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by Jennifer K.


  • Morgan M.Classic, popular, accessible ramen noodle place in Japantown. No-frills atmosphere and a younger but mixed crowd. I like the wonton ramen soup.

    55555 by Morgan M.


  • DominiqueMoyashi Ramen is not just my favorite but the staff's favorite too! Lots of crunchy sprouts plus spicy, flavorful garlic chunks / oil in the broth <3

    55555 by Dominique


  • stephanie f.Karamiso is the shit

    33333 by stephanie f.


  • Roshan V.Try the Kirin or Sapporo on tap in a frosted mug.

    55555 by Roshan V.


  • Roshan V.Chicken karamiso (fried chicken in spicy miso) ramen is excellent. It's slightly off menu but they know!

    55555 by Roshan V.


  • Jessica C.I love the chanpon ramen- it comes with squid! Also try the grilled or fried squid legs.

    55555 by Jessica C.


  • Daniel T.best gyoza in town

    55555 by Daniel T.


  • Katie T.Potstickers were tge best I've ever had!

    55555 by Katie T.


  • Lyle F.Ask for "chashu chashu" for extra meat

    33333 by Lyle F.


  • Ron G.Come before karaoke. Be loud. Order confusedly. They will understand.

    55555 by Ron G.


  • Roshan V.Get the Katsu Curry if you're not craving ramen

    55555 by Roshan V.


  • Yina M.Loved the southern style Kyoshu ramen with plum wine.

    55555 by Yina M.


  • Darren HMeh. This was hyped up! Service was fine, variety of ramen soup was good, but meat was super fatty, broth was a bit MSG heavy, and the noodles were not firm. I would try the curry next time

    33333 by Darren H


  • Rhonda T.gotta try karamiso ramen

    55555 by Rhonda T.


  • FatimaHorrible service. Very rude and will refuse to give you more than one tiny pack of soy sauce if they give you one at all. I had to ask.

    11111 by Fatima


  • Buddy R.Rated 66 by the health inspector. Wish me luck!

    11111 by Buddy R.

    55555 by Lauren H.


  • Ola A.Try the karamiso chasu ramen.

    55555 by Ola A.


  • Chris U.Ramen broth variety is great. Kyushu, miso, and karamiso are faves. Noodles at Suzu are arguably better but this place is solid.

    55555 by Chris U.

    55555 by Steve J.


  • yamalots of ramen, but I love the katsu curry
