Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent vegetarian and vegan options that did not compromise at all on flavor. Cute interior and welcoming atmosphere. Some of the best ramen and gyoza I’ve ever had, and I eat a lot.

By far the best meal we have had in Riga. The gyozas were the best I have had in my 24 years of life and the ramen was fantastic. Great service and very friendly people, could not recommend any more. A must visit if you...come to Riga.More

We loved everything!!! Food - duck ramen, tuna tataki, shrimps were amazing. Place is small and very cozy, good ventilation and very friendly service. Even with very well deserved Michelin recognition prices are still very affordable.

Can’t speak highly enough of this restaurant, the food and service were both incredible. Make sure to book as it’s only small and it was completely full.

High quality food for really good price. As it is small place, so better make a reservation either online or by calling. Not only ramen was perfect, but i was suprised by the texture, taste and quality of starters.

Top ramen and poke bowls. One of the best asian places I have ever visited. Really nice flavors and quality food. Service was also nice and friendly. The place is small, so booking in advance is probably necessary
