    I recommend ordering ahead of time if you are in a hurry. We ordered a slush, tea, crab rangoon, hibachi noodles, and one of the tacos.
    - Mango Slush is absolutely delicious and will be back for that
    -Crab Rangoon was pretty good but would've been better if it didn't sit on the counter for 30 mins waiting on the noodles.
    -crazy taco was so good definitely will be back to try the others
    -Hibachi madness combo had no flavor it tasted like the noodles were cooked in a dirty wok. The meat tasted unseasoned and veggies were not all the way cooked.
    We ordered at 12 and waited until 12:40 because the noodles weren't done. I feel maybe they need more kitchen staff in there. I will try the ramen and chicken madness burrito next.

    The black Tonkotsu was legit. Thick cut pork slices and the portion was huge! My buddy got the volcano sushi taco and it was super good. Highly recommend this place.

    Wow all I can say is this is easily the best ramen in the area! I’m incredibly impressed after being disappointed by some of the ramen I’ve tried. You can’t beat the price either! I haven’t seen ramen that’s affordable in such a long time. Their Thai Tea with their boba added was also something I was impressed by. A lot of places here seem to either not have Thai tea or make it wrong somehow, this place just earned itself a regular! See y’all next week!

    Food was decently priced and I enjoyed it. My friend thought the food was meh. It arrived pretty quickly, however. The best part about the experience was the atmosphere and the tea! Very creative tea creations that we both really enjoyed. It is very manga coded but that was honestly the main reason we went here. Will be back again because I personally loved the restaurant’s atmosphere!

    + free parking - it's rare for campus town
    + sushi taco / burrito
    + self-service for dine-in
    + ramen soups taste good
    - quantity of meats / fish / noddle is not enough for the price
