Birthday for my 9 year old daughter. She loves this place.
Awesome food and awesome drinks as usual!
Too salty, music blasting, not for us
Decent place, food was good but not the best ramen I’ve ever had.
The Ramen Bowls were very good and big. They now have Bento Boxes which were excellent and priced right. Good quality food and a fun atmosphere. A lot of choices to mix and match a lunch.
Very yummy! Our service was amazing and they catered to my special dietary needs!!
Patrick. (Our server) was very helpful with my friend and recommendations for an entree due to dental work he had done. Was not overly pushy with service.
Our first visit was for restaurant week and we loved it!! Great flavorful taste!
The fries are amazing. Like a Japanese take on poutine.
Always a good time!
Visited for birthday lunch during KC Restaurant Week. Tried three different items, all were delicious! Boru 2.0 with pork was good, Spicy Miso was fairly spicy, but delicious, and Curry Beef had a nice, subtle curry flavor with fat udon noodles. With potatoes and slightly sweet, well-cooked carrots and gravy, seemed like a homemade pot roast dish with lots of beef. Dessert, definitely choose the Chocolate Caramel Tart. Amazing crust, chocolate and caramel conflagration! The Custard was fine, but plain next to the other. Will definitely return!
Food was decent not spectacular. Waitress had friends at adjacent table so she stood there most of the evening with her back to us talking loudly with her buddies. Not very professional!
This place is quickly becoming a favorite of ours!
Our waiter, Javier, recommended the drink Samurai 75, and my husband had the Bruce Lee (also recommended), and both were delicious! Our meals were also fantastic. Javier provided excellent service as well. Great night out!
As always I had a delish meal at Boru. The food was wonderful and came to the table promptly. The server was friendly and helpful, but not overwhelming. My only annoyance was the volume of the music and the number of TVs in the place. Other than that, it is awesome!
Music is TOO loud. Can’t have a conversation with the people at your table. Waiter was nice but food takes forever! It’s taken forever every time we’ve gone so I think it’s the norm.
I really wanted this restaurant to be great. We had some amazing bites of food, but we also had a few terrible bites. We had the Shishito Peppers to start. Some bites were amazing, but some were so salty we could barely swallow. We also had the Bulgogi wraps; two were great, one had one big gristly piece of meat. Then we had the Korean Ramen. For the most part is was flavorful and good, but our pork belly had cartilage in it, which pork belly should not have. It appears that while the flavors are there, the consistency and the meat needs some work.
Excellent authentic food with a diverse drink menu.
We’ve been numerous times and this was not a good experience. The waitress took 15 min to get our order. She forgot our appetizer and brought it after our meal. And they put the chili bomb in the wrong ramen.
If you go ask for Debbie. Best service and the food is incredible.
First time at Boru. Really enjoyed it. Food was very good and Stephanie our server was great! My only neg was the restaurant so was too dark and menus were hard to read when lights were down that low. But, thanks to phone I could shine my light and read. Other than the lack of light our group had a great experience. Choice of music was great as well. Thanks Boru and Stephanie. See you next time.
My only complaint is really w/mgr?? (female, older, long dark blonde straight hair).. Otherwise my rating would be a 5, because I love this place!
We had reservations, the hostess told me to go ahead & sit down after I checked in, so she could grab us menus as she had none at the front. As I was seating myself, the older lady/mgr abruptly came over and asked of I had a reservation.. I told her yes and the hostess told me to sit down. Her response was less than thrilling and she said "We're really tight on reservations" & walked away...WOW.. No apology.. Never saw her again the whole evening.. I even told my gf about it & we felt rushed to get up from our dinner so they could have the table..
Our server (she had a gold festive hairdo) was awesome and knowledgable about the menu helping my friend with her choices and making recommendations to her.. She was much more friendlier & welcoming..
I've always made reservations everytime I've been there but this time was a first feeling unwelcome by the mgr..
We like Boru. The food is more Japanese/Korean themed, than authentic, but it is good and we always leave full with leftovers for more meals to come.
One of my family's top of the list go to places in KC. Always good service and the kitchen does an outstanding performance.
Boru never disappoints! Everything, from the service and appetizers to the main dishes and cocktails, is always perfection.
Second time here and it was fantastic both times. Wonderful food, great service, and fun, energetic atmosphere.
Never had ramen noodles. This was my first experience. It was amazing. The atmosphere is great, the service was very good - the waitress helped in picking out our selections. The food was quick and HOT. Temperature and flavor - like we like it. Thank you ! We will be back for sure.
We love coming here and trying a different bowl each time. Our favorite starter every visit, however are pork belly steamed boas. So delicious! We always have impeccable service as well!
We had 3 different dishes and shared. Everything was unique and very delicious. The service was excellent.
Food was good - our server, Roland, was kind of obnoxious.
I had an issue with my ramen, but the server and manager was very kind to remedy the issue. They were apologetic and swift to take action and make sure I was happy. Great cocktails, tasty food. Server was friendly and quick.
Waited over an hour to be served! We think the waiter forgot to send the order in because our neighbors were served way before us, even though they arrived after us.
We loved everything we are there! Our kids, too! Waiter was great too! And they were busy!
Food was really good. This was our first experience and it we were definitely satisfied. Husband got the loaded fried rice that he has been craving for weeks. The gyoza were amazing and I could make an entire meal out of those. I had the chicken shio ramen. We will definitely be back to try more.
Food was great, but service was some of the worst I’ve experienced. Barely saw server. They were out of silverware. Took almost two hours to get in and out for my party of two.
I went here for a night out with my two friends. It was a little noisy, but worth it for the food! Started with the lettuce wraps. We each ordered ramen. I got the Chicken Shiro. My friends got Boru 2.0 and Miso. All delicious! Great cocktails! If you love whiskey try the Flying Dragon. Our server, Roland, was super polite and helpful. I’ll be back for sure! Word of advice- make a reservation if it’s a Friday or Saturday night. We were there at 6:30 and left at 8:30. There was a constant line of people to the door.
Food and service is always flawless! We love taking advantage of the 3pm-6pm daily happy hour (even weekends) for the $5 steamed baos. The pork belly baos are outstanding with the fried chicken baos close behind. My personal favorite for dinner is the Spicy Miso Ramen. Tender, perfectly seasoned ground pork in a rich, spicy broth. The noodles are always fresh and the soft boiled egg is velvety smooth. I could write an additional review about the cocktails, they're that good. If you have the chance, try the Frozen Melon cocktail. The frozen flavors change daily but get the melon if they have it. The Samurai 75 is also wonderful. Go on a weekend, don't complain about the 90s music or tv's playing funny 80s MTV videos. Just take someone you love and enjoy the soul warming food and friendly service.
Best Ramen in Kansas City. Food is generously portioned and very richly flavored. The staff was attentive and good. It was a little loud but not horrible. Some of the food was a little too rich, but still enjoyable.
We don't live very close but it was well worth the drive! The food was fantastic! All 3 appetizers we chose were loved by each of us: 2x fried wings, chilled edamame, Gyoza. We shared our awesome entree's of Tori Katsu, and Ramens Boru 2.0 and Tsukemen. Our server Stephanie was great - very helpful, patient, friendly, helped us feel very comfortable. Love the feel of the restaurant!
We went there on a busy night. Service was great considering the place was packed for 4+ hours. We loved the Baos and the ramen was on point. Huge portions!
