We entered the place by chance and had a great dinner.
We had hot sake, some fried chicken and the miso ramen, soy ramen and the special of the day which was a soup with green tomatoes that was the best!

We've tried a few different ramen places as they are becoming popular in recent years (thank goodness), and Daruma is as authentic as it gets.

I tried the veggie miso ramen with seitan. Delicious and filling!

One important thing to keep in mind is that the dining room is very small and they don't take reservations or to-go orders, so you may have to wait (we waited 5-10 minutes for a table for 2).
However, good things come for those who wait.

I see ramen soups as a healing treat. The taste was delicious and I was sitting at the bar in front of the kitchen, it was very interesting to see all the people working in perfect sync in a very small space. Service was really good as well

It appears that a bunch of college kids decided to start a Japanese place after taking some Japanese cooking course. I went expecting an authentic Japanese place, but found disappointed with the meal. It is probably for college kids or young people who don’t want to cook their own ramen and want to eat here.

Hi there!

Just to clarify, our owners are indeed Japanese and studied at a ramen school in Tokyo. They have crafted our whole chicken broth and vegan ramen recipes that our team serves every day. Sorry to hear we were not your cup of tea, but thank you for taking the time to give us a try and leave a review!

Have a wonderful day!
