    The service was memorably bad. There are 2 waiters and not more than 6 tables and a small bar. The drinks came very fast out of the bar but I had to ask the waitress on 2 separate occasion that same night for a Perrier a total of 4 times. My noodles were room temp by the time the rest of the table was served-- 10 minutes after me. I will go back because the food is great but mentally prepared for the hipster service.

    Amazingggggg!!!!!!!! Sorry que no me se los nombres de los que nos atendieron a mi primo y a mi, pero de verdad que todos fueron excelentes pero el de los ojitos verdes, TREMENDO SERVICIO, si fuera por nosotros nos comíamos todo lo que el nos ofrecía por que el se sabía ese menú a la perfección. Los tragos fueron el toque de la noche definitivamente, un sabor perfecto y bien hechos. La comida, esas combinaciones únicas estaban increíbles. Los wontons de camarones todavía no dejo de pensar en ellos. De verdad que no se arrepentirán. Me encanto y vuelvo sin duda alguna!! Gracias por dedicarnos ese tiempito bien exclusivo. La experiencia fue otro nivel!! Muy únicos. Que les vaya super bien en su negocio, lo merecen!

    The place itself feels kinda small but considering it’s a noodle bar it’s just about a good size. Layout needs some rethinking. It doesn’t make to have more space for lounges when you can use that space for tables and fit in more people, but that’s my impression. The music also does not fit the vibe of the place and it’s too loud for such a small area. The service was great. Jacky was always attentive and made sure that we were accommodated with seating. The food itself was hit-or-miss. I had the tonkkotsu ramen, bao buns, a frozen geisha, and a Japanese old fashioned. Let me start with saying that their Japanese old fashion is the blandest cocktail I’ve ever had in my life. So much spectacle with the presentation and it amounts to a drink so tasteless you wouldn’t believe it had any whisky or bitters. I don’t know if they smoked it too much and melted the ice or if they don’t use anything to sweeten it but stay away from this if you’re expecting an old fashion. The frozen geisha was just a more citrusy piña colada but it was delicious. The bao buns were a balance of crunchy and chewy, savoury and sweet. They’re a bit too small and the presentation leaves a little to be desired. The ramen was by far the best thing I had. While it’s still small by the average ramen house you’ll find anywhere else, it’s filling enough and the broth was delicious. The freshly made noodles were awesome and so was the egg. The pork cutlet is not what you’d expect from traditional ramen but it’s still yummy and can’t really complain about it. I’m definitely coming back, but with lower expectations. I hope they can keep the music a bit lower but it’s probably to discourage people from staying too long talking without ordering. If Jacky’s around definitely ask for her!

    Ambiente súper agradable y con esto interesante. Los tragos estuvieron de show y definitivo algo que solo encuentras acá en Kaiju. Sería buenísimo un menú de tapas para acompañar los tragos de la casa.

    The ambiance is fantastic. Very photogenic. They even have a DJ playing sometimes. The bartenders are very fun to watch. The drinks are delicious and fun. But they weren't serving any sushi the last time I went, which is more than half the menu, so we were disappointed.

    The only thing I would point out is that even if one makes reservations, there is a possibility you would have to make 20-30min. But is a small place with a lot of clientele. Still, the place is amazing, the drinks are amazing, the food is even better and the staff are the best.

    The food was amazing. The service however not even 2 minutes being seated and the waitress telling us to scan the menu , came back and asked if we knew what we wanted, this happened about 3 times in a row not 20 min in the reservation. Food was amazing so that was a PLUS.

    Fue súper bueno, las mesas de grupos grandes pudiera ser mejor. El humo de la cocina salía al comedor y molestaba un poco. El área de comer era incómodo porque realmente no eran mesas y sillas para comer, era más para una sala pero aún así se pasó espectacular y definitivamente volvería.

    The ambience is amazing! You can be chill and have fun, listen to every type of music that makes you feel part of it. The cocktails I love them but not only that the presentation of the cocktails are high level. Alexis is the best bartender! Super charismatic, fun, nice, he always has made our visits a unique one. Never lose this guy cause he is the one that make everything nicer. The food taste very good!

    Me gustó muchísimo el ambiente y la comida. Lo único que tendría que comentar fueron algunos comentarios que nos hizo una de las meseras. Fuimos la última reservación y una de las meseras parecía disgustada porque llegamos a pesar de que llegamos a tiempo. Tanto así que nos comentó en “forma de broma” que estaban rogando porque no llegáramos. Pero los otros meseros, bartenders y comida se encargaron de no dañar la experiencia. Lo disfrutamos y volveríamos. Mi única observación es que tengan cuidado lo que le dicen y como le dicen a los clientes ciertos comentarios.

El que nos sirvió los tragos súper nice al igual que la chica que nos atendió toda la noche... tienen unas creaciones bien peculiares que llaman mucho la atención y el dark vibe con neon, está de show!

    Ambience was awesome with the black lights, music mix was great and the food was really good. Loved the rangoons, spring roll, tonkutso ramen was pretty good and the salmon with fried rice blocks was delicious. Cocktails were okay, most of them were whiskey based. I want to go again.

    Came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The place looks unassuming from the outside, but it’s amazing inside! Neon paint, led lighting, and good music really set a great tone for the night. The drinks (we had the Japanese Old Fashioned and the Mule) were awesome. It was the best old fashioned I’ve ever had (they even use a cocktail smoker that helped bring the flavor to a 10/10). I had the shoyu ramen and my husband had the curry noodles. The shoyu was the best out of the two, but neither one lacked in flavor. Prefect temp and seasoning. It is a bit pricey, but not anything crazy; I honestly believe it’s a good price for the service, atmosphere, and quality of food. 15/10 we’ll be going back!

    The first thing you notice is that they do not have a sign that says Kaiju, it reminded me of the Back Alley, Ramen shops in Tokyo. The next thing is you walk down a steep set of stairs to the basement level and then you enter Kaiju.. The owner deliberately wanted to replicate a underground Robin Barfield and they did it perfectly. It is a small, trendy, and friendly place to go. There are about four tables plenty of seating at the bar or Ramen bar. I ordered the tonkatsu Ramen and the first thing I try when I eat Ramen is the soup face. You can tell the quality immediately because it is not overly salted as many bad Ramen shops are, it is perfectly seasoned and adds a wonderful light counterpoint to the noodles. The noodles are handmade fresh and they are the right consistency and texture. An unexpected treat was I tried their spring rolls with pulled pork, they make their pulled pork in the house and it is so flavorful that when they put it inside the wonton skin to make a spring roll I was able to have the crunchy texture of the fried wonton wrapper with the moist flavorful pulled pork They also have fresh made dumplings and wontons but I was too full to try those. Kaiju is not my go to place in San Juan as they have the best Ramen, great service, and is a family owned and operated business they take great attention to detail

Lei la política era hasta 15 minutos pero wow que actitud, le pregunto qué alternativas hay ya que ella solo se enfoco en aclarar que perdimos la reservación. “Alguna solución para la situación “… ahí notifica que puede ponernos en espera, pues bien. Encima nos hace esperar de pies, pregunto si pueden notificar por el celular y dice que sí, espere 50 minutos y ni modo cancele por miedo a seguir esperando y nunca obtener respuesta
