Overall
Very unique, but food needs improvement

A waitress welcomed us with a big smile; the first impression was great. This place was clean and neat unlike other Japanese noodle restaurants where wall and ceiling are greasy. We liked the décor and Jazz music originated from the owner's Ipod. According to our waitress, the owner is into Jazz music and he is a musician as well. She was very helpful so that we could have some idea about food and how to enjoy it.

Unfortunately, I cannot say food was great, but it was unique. We had ""Gyoza"" and ""Chicken Charshu Salad"" as appetizers. Gyoza was tasty, but squishy like frozen dumplings. Chicken was too dry and sweet, which did not go with the dressing. I had ""tsukemen,"" a dipping noodle dish. The noodles and my dipping soup (it's warm and not thick as “sauce”) were good, but things on the side were no no no. It was amazing that they could cook the pork so tender, but it tasted awful since it was cold pork with fat.

Don't take me wrong. I love cold food. I cook cold ramen myself. I even eat Shoprite Ramen cold. I cook the noodles separately and rinse it in cold water. Prepare the soup beforehand and make it cold in the fridge. When everything is ready, I add shredded ham, cucumber, tomatoes, and Japanese omelets to the noodle, and mix with the chilled soup. Ok Ok I stop here.

Anyway, the whole wheat noodles swimming in the ramen soup tasted like uncooked (I am sure it was cooked thoroughly. But, it was kind of powdery) Well, this is my personal opinion. Yours may be different and you may like it. Actually, you should try yourself. I would stick to the wavy noodles at least if I were you.
