    Had good expectations, but not a great experience. First, they were out of the bottle of sake we ordered (720ml)so they said they would offer us another one (500ml) for a discounted price… we said ok. Then when we wanted to order a second bottle, they brought out one that was already opened asking if we would be ok with that as that was all they had….wooow, just wow… have never experienced that before in a restaurant. Then when the bill came, the bottle was not discounted at all and when we brought it up to them they acted annoyed and only took $5 off. Second, the ramen was sub par… everything was put together poorly and the charshu was meh. Third, one of the people in our party ordered a regular bowl and added spicy on the side (extra $) that they never brought. When it was on the bill they argued that we got what we ordered. Overall, poor poor service, average ramen. Would not come back.

    Such a cosy welcoming place to have some heart warming noodles. The waitstaff are all happy and outgoing of course attentive as well! We shared a char Siu pork ramen with 2 orders of pan fried gyozas. My husband also ordered a Kirin beer. The broth(Tonkotsu) is good with a lot of slow simmered pork bones flavour and ramen is not soggy mushy. I saw the chef take my bowl of ramen out from kitchen and keep looking for the waitstaff. This is very important to me to have piping hot soup with the ramen cooked al dente—-if u let the noodles sit in that soup for another few minutes it will go soft and I prefer my noodles cooked just right. This really show that the chef takes pride in his craft, knowing it has to be delivered to customer right away. Just wish the waitstaff understands what distinguishes a great noodle shop versus an average one, should always keep their eyes to see when the order has come out from the kitchen. Of course if their business model is aimed more on tourists than locals then it’s a different story. Highly recommend this little Waikiki gem xoxo

    Dining at this tavern my friend chose was a onetime experience. The apps were a great starter for the night gyoza was good just like any other ramen shop. The ramen was the richest ramen I've ever tasted with every sip of the broth and slurp of the noodles was just breath-taking. I wouldn't come back only due to the location of this place.

    Wonderful Japanese Raman bar atmosphere and arguably the best gyoza I’ve ever had. Broth was absolutely terrific, complex, and nuanced. Staff was extremely in tune with one another and knew the menu very well. Really wish I could go back to this place, kept having sip after last sip of the broth knowing it was my last.

    Our group of 3 ordered the same dish - tonkotsu ramen. We also ordered three appetizers to share - takoyaki, pork gyoza, and yodare-dori. The takoyaki was one of the best I've had, the yodare-dori was delicious, and the pork gyoza was large but nothing special. Next came the ramen. The tonkotsu ramen looked incredible, but had a weird taste, which I didn't care for. The appetizers are actually better than the tonkotsu ramen. Another disappointment - I asked the server if they had chili pepper (I wanted to disguise the funny taste of the tonkotsu ramen). The server said they didn't have chili pepper, and brought out about a teaspoon of chili paste instead. The paste was sweet rather than hot and I didn't use it. When I received the bill, I was surprised to be charged $2.00 for the chili paste. I wish the server warned me in advance that there would be a charge for the small dollop. I would recommend Camado Ramen for the appetizers.

    Service and atmosphere were great but the ramen just wasn't very good. The tonkotsu broth was more greasy than creamy and the char siu pork was the thinnest sliced, smallest portion I've ever seen. The karaage chicken was good.

    service was outstanding and they made sure our water glasses were full throughout our meal. apps came out quickly and ramen to follow. i got the tantan men and wished it was spicier. adding extra chili oil and pepper didn't change it by much. girlfriend ordered the tonkotsu and it was tasty but your standard soup base. will definitely come back if in the area but having to pay for parking in waikiki is also a downside.

    Still a work in progress. Sat solo at the bar in front of Charrish on her first day. The bar stools are not comfortable or functional. Dined at this location years before when it was a Tonkatsu joint……and it still feels like I’m in a dark wine cellar cave with too many steps and ramps to navigate. Using their shared hotel bathroom is another annoying humbug………..That said, the pork/veggie tanmen was super delicious, noodles perfectly al dente and broth nice and strong. Gyoza not bad either so the bro in the back of the Camado House knows his stuff. They got draft Kirin which is another big plus. Japanese dude tourists were asking for fried rice but that’s not on the menu which is unfortunate. Many items on the menu were not available but Charrish did a heck of a job for her first day. So a lot of potential here, Waikiki definitely could use more ramen spots so that’s why I’m rooting for Camado to succeed.

    We really enjoyed our meal here. My husband is a ramen lover and critical when eating ramen. Camado Ramen Tavern passed his taste test. We will most certainly be back. The prices were in line with other Waikiki ramen places. My husband praised quality of the noodles as they’re were the correct firmness, not mushy. The Tonkotsu broth was hot and tasty. He said that at some places the ramen broth arrives warm, not hot. Lastly, I was super happy the chashu was nice and tender. Our drinks were delicious. I especially liked the Red Sangria that tasted like Li Hing due to the Choya Umeshu. The gyoza was pretty good. Not the best I’ve ever had but most certainly solid. The strawberry shave ice dessert was excellent and not overbearingly sweet. Over all I would give this place a 4.5 out of 5 stars and would highly recommend it. In fact, please open a location in Hawaii Kai! 😉

    Best ramen in Waikiki! Service was on point. Had the gyoza to start - nice and crisp on the outside and tasty juicy in the middle. I got the Spicy Tonkotsu and I was happy with the heat. My girlfriend got the Vegan option and she said it was the best vegan noodle option in town. Broth was full of flavor. I will be a regular at this place.

    I don't have any complaint with foods. We had kara-age, gyoza, shoyu ramen and tan-tan ramen and everything was great. Only issue we had was that the ramens we ordered took too long time to arrive. I understand that it is was still "soft opening" period. As a native Japanese I will highly recommend this place to my friends.

    We tried the spicy tonkotsu, char siu tonkotsu & spicy tantan. All were delicious & we'd definitely return to try more appetizers. The pork gyoza was my favorite but the shrimp one was ok. I'd like to try the yodare chicken & takoyaki next time. I also appreciate that they offer Kamaaina discount! Please ask for it!

    I found this restaurant on Open Table on a whim. My husband and I arrived and it turned out to be a soft opening. From the moment we walked in, everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Min was our server and he was excellent. We also spoke with Gene and Michelle and they were also fantastic. The food was exactly what we were craving - authentic ramen. We were so impressed with everything at this new place. Highly recommend!
