Kind Words

  • My first ramen outside of Manhattan and it did not disappoint! I’ve been to the famous Totto Ramen a lot in Hell’s Kitchen but I actually think this is nicer! Went here with my brother and we both left very impressed!

  • Consistently delicious. The croquette appetizer is my favorite followed by the ramen. The miso is too creamy and flavorful for my own taste. Only $2 for extra noodles! This is a great local spot. Their location is convenient and they’re always busy.

  • There are 3 things I look for in an awesome ramen shop.

    1) broth – must be flavorful and not too oily. can’t have hella fat chunks
    2) noodles – thicker and more el dente in texture. I like having chewy noodles
    3) eggs – must be soft boiled and running eggs.

    So my ramen covered 1 & 3 but I forgot to ask for the thick noodles, which is my fault not the ramen shop’s. They had it too. boo.

  • I’ve been here for about three times now and Tamashi Ramen definitely hits the spot. Now only if they can deliver. Each time we go there the usual is the tako wasabi. My husband and I we both love the Kara spicy miso Ramen. The noodles are nice thick and wavy al dente. Very delicious to the bite! The chasu pork is yummy, filling and very substantial. I love the tiny piece of pork and corn that included with the soft boiled egg. If only I could fit more in my tummy I would definitely wanna try other items outside of Ramen.
