Success! Thanks for posting your review of Daikokuya. You’ve done the world some good today.


Best ramen joint in LA! Get the ramen and rice bowl combo and u won't be sorry. Wait time can be long but worth it... just don't go in a big group. Cash only... there's a shady looking ATM on site if u're willing to roll the dice with ur identity. The parking sit kinda sux but u'll forget about all the hassles a few bites in. Don't be scurred!!

If you're in the mood for really good Japanese ramen Daikokuya is the place to go! Line is always long so make sure you go early to put your name on the list and walk around Japanese Village.

Daikokuya is one of my favorite tonkotsu ramen places in LA. If you're a fan of Santouka, Yamadaya or Shinsengumi, you would also like this place. The place is always packed and wait time is 10 minutes to sometime over an hour; so avoid the busiest hours as possible. I like Daikokuya but I would rather go to Shinsengumi (which is 5 minutes away) if the wait is too long. Shinsengumi is just as good as Daikokuya. The p... view more

Delicious bowl of ramen! I am huge fan of real ramen with rich, hearty tonkatsu broth. I tried the tonkatsu kotteri here and was pretty pleased. It was a large serving which I didn't finish. Note - it's DTLA, so parking is a pain. Also, there's almost always a long wait because it's a tiny restaurant. We went on a hot summer day so it was really toasty in the restaurant. Best time to go is probably late at night, or ... view more

Great Japanese Food

Daikokuya STRIKES AGAIN! Man o man what a place. This is my favorite hole in the wall for the rest of the century! Went there for lunch yesterday and let me tell ya, it was just as good as last time. I had the CA role, which all beit the bunny hill of sushi is still a great pleasure when done right, and they do it righ baby! Then I had the pork belly bowl. Now let me tell you something... this thing is a pork lovers ... view more

Great place for ramen, the but wait can be over an hour (even outside of regular lunch hours). Come early to sign in, walk around Little Tokyo for a bit, then come back later to eat. The ramen portions are fairly large, so appetizers may be unnecessary unless you plan on eating a lot.

Definitely one of the top ramen places i have been too. Highly recommend checking this place out - you can even make a day of visiting the MOCA and coming here for lunch or dinner. There was a wait but totally worth it.

A local must

Daikokuya is one of those hole-in-the-way neighborhood joints everyone in town seems to know about and recommends. For good reason. Just think of this term, "rich pork broth" and all that it implies -- savoriness, saltiness, indulgence, fatty, delicious. The daikoko ramen with extra pork oil isn't something you can eat everyday, but it's a great indulgence on a cool day. The restaurant has a "B" r... view more
