Editorial review from Citysearch 2/14/2014

One of the only benefits of jury duty is eating at this place. It's jammed packed but people move along quickly. Just don't be picky about where you sit. I get the ramen sans fish cake and usually a side of pot stickers or something. Be prepared to take some how or leave it there. Portions are huge. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/12/2014

Came to try this spot since the wait was not long like the other ramen places around. The ramen is here is decent . No negative complaints but nothing unique abou this place. I would come here if you don't want to wait for the other places around. more

Exellent Curry Ramen! 11/18/2011

Their curry ramen is awesome. I have only been here a few times though. The first time we had to wait which sucked but after that it went smooth. I would give this place a 5 stars except I have had better Ramen. This comes close to the best for me though. It's for sure worth giving it a try. Their pork is also pretty damn good. more

Cold Ramen is Unique Here.... 9/3/2010

I love this place for their pork. Sure it's not the ""best"" ramen place, but what makes this place stand out is their pork. It's not too salty or greasy and it is seasoned just right. I love their cold ramen which is really refreshing on a cold day. My main complaint is that I wish they included bamboo shoots and a whole egg in their ramen, but oh well, I still like it. The place is also not expensive. more

Nice and Cheap, but they don't skimp... 10/5/2007

I have been going to Mr. Ramen for a good long while now. The menu has no frills, but they deliver excellent quality. Large servings are enough for fill you up for dinner and breakfast the next day. The service is alright and the reggae music gives this little hole in the wall a very warm and friendly atmosphere. So if you're short on cash, but if you want a meal that'll fill you up without making you feel like you're gonna have a coronary right afterwards, head over to Mr. Ramen! PS: If you're a tofu lover whose looking for a little more spice, ask for the Mabo Ramen extra spicy. That'll warm you up on a cold night. Pros: Great food for cheap Cons: no parking more

Amazing, huge bowls of ramen! 9/21/2007

Mr. Ramen is perfect for vegetarians who crave great ramen--they make just about any bowl vegetarian. They also have tasty curries and other dishes. The bowls can be a little expensive (about $8 or so) but overall the service is great and the food even better. There's a really sweet waitress there with crazy hair and she's always nice about making things vegetarian. A great noodle bar! Pros: Veggie friendly ramen, good service, great food more

great ramen in little tokyo 3/13/2007

I couldn't see why people would eat ramen out, because you can pretty much make it at home, but this place has proven me otherwise. It's ramen is truly one-of-a-kind, and its so flavorful. I like to order the miso ramen and switch up the toppings every time I go. It's definitely worth the trip to Downtown! more

Decent ramen, no-frills decor 11/14/2006

Mr. Ramen, along sushi and ramen row on 1st Street in Little Tokyo, is a bit of an ugly duckling -- the decor is pretty utilitarian -- just florescent lights, tables and a table with Japanese newspapers and comic books to read. And most times when I go, I'm usually one of two or three patrons in the place, making for a somewhat lonely atmosphere. But I keep going back because it delivers where it counts: they make decent ramen at very good prices. The noodles are chewy and tasty, the soup (especially the pork bone soup, which is rich and delicious) is flavorful. You can add on any number of toppings for an extra fee, like spinach, egg, another slice of roast pork or crispy tempura bits to customize your experience. The service is fast and friendly. The only thing that's missing is the energy, the hustle and bustle of a neighborhood ramen joint that you see at places like Asahi Ramen on Sawtelle. But then again, you're never rushed to finish eating because people are glowering at you while they wait for a table. Parking can be a pain -- I hate to pay more than a buck or two to park to eat cheap food -- but then, this is L.A.... Pros: Tasty ramen, good prices, friendly service Cons: Slightly dowdy decor, no free parking, no 'crowd' energy that comes from a busier joint more

Yummy Ramen For Late Night 2/6/2004

If you are hungry and around Little Tokyo late at night, go to Mr. Ramen for a large, steaming bowl of delicious ramen. Their are many choices for toppings and side dishes. Portions are large and you will want to slurp the yummy broth so one bowl should be enough for even the largest of appetites. Pros: ramen, many toppings, cheap more
