This place provides large bowls of ramen of many different varieties and you will not leave hungry. The broth is very flavorful and the noodles are a good texture. There are a limited number of dishes for the non-ramen eating crowd.

Asahi Ramen has been around for years and has many fans. They have different kinds of ramen with some side dishes. Their ramen is good, but it is usually crowded. Also, street parking can be difficult to find during dinner hours.

Love the ramen noodles here. The broth is delicious and the noodles are chewy and wonderful. I love the gyoza too. Street parking is all they have so you need to be willing to walk.

Asahi is a great place to eat. It's small, but very homey. Their fried rice is delicious and their ramen is even better. it comes in big portions, i can never finish them. very friendly. i've been going there since i was little and have been a loyal customer even in college.

I am a regular at this ramen place and its much better than the one around the corner which will go unmentioned. Quality is definitely what I think of when I come here. They hook it up so a bowl of ramen is not JUST a bowl of ramen. My personal preference is the miso ramen or the tanmen ramen. In terms of the appetizers, I always get the ban ban ji which is shredded chicken and cucumber. They only take cash so be sure to go to an atm before coming here. It's definitely worth the trouble.

Went on a late-afternoon while visiting from out of town. My sister lives close by and had always wanted to try it. We split the bowl of wonton and noodles soup, which is SO huge there's no way girls like us could eat the whole thing alone

This place is the BEST for a cheap dinner on a cold day. All the ramen literally steams up the windows and it gets super warm and cozy inside the tiny dining room. The bowls of ramen are absolutely gigantic, so ask for an extra bowl and

This is THE place to go if you want to fill your belly for under $20. Super casual, super cheap and super people-watching is what you get. The classic noodle bowls are big enough for two ( the miso-flavored is the best) and the pickled

We have been on a citywide search for good noodles in Los Angeles. Most places don't even qualify to be called noodle houses, but this one does. This place is good. They have good noodles and great service. I recommend this place.

OK, so I'll admit that it's not as good as a ramen shop in Tokyo, but for a westside noodle fan, it will definitely do. I advise against the chasu ramen because the meat really isn't very good so you don't really want to load up on it. The

One of the best Ramen I have tasted, and the portions are huge, good enough for 2. Fresh, simple, inexpensive and filling food, another great everyday place. Run by a group of middle aged Japanese woman that are really nice.

Overall, the food is fantastic. The broth is marvelous, never too salty or watered down. The noodles bounce back and are not mushy. The restaurant is small though, so you will usually have to wait. The only thing is that after tax and tip, you have paid $10+ for noodles, and I do not see that as any sort of value.

I recommend the miso ramen. Order a side of gyoza, too. Reminds me of the basic ramen dishes in Japan.

I've been going to asahi since I was young and I love it. In typical Japanese fashion, its cash only. But, that's a sure sign of what's to come. The noodles are good and the soup is great. You usually can't get good ramen, but here

When you are in need of the quick fix for asian ramen noodles, this is the only place on the west side that serves it. The food is cheap, fast and warm. Although the noodles are not to par with authentic japanese noodles in japan, they are the closest thing you can get on the West Side. If you go on the weekend especially Saturday Noon time be prepared to wait in a short line. Although the decor is not anythign special the food is well worth it. They also have very good fried rice. the best noodles there is the miso ramen.

This is where I go to satisfy my ramen cravings! Always a line, just put your name on the list and wait outside -- it moves fast. Huge ramen portions & great dumplings. No alcohol menu, but you can practically eat a feast for pennies!

Don't go here if you're looking for freshly made ramen, it's reconstituted.
