What a pleasant surprise.. We were in town for an overnight stay and saw the OT reviews, and after looking over the menu thought this was just what a cold night in Scranton ordered. Started with Brisket bombs and spicy tuna wonton tacos.. Mmm delicious, fresh tasting and great flavors. We ordered the chicken meatball shoyu and pork belly shoyu noodles. Everything is served hot and with fresh ingredients. The egg really stood out for me and all the flavors came together so nicely to make this such an enjoyable dish. Would highly recommend if you are in town for a cold night... Service is a little on the slow side but worth waiting for a quality meal...

This was me and my boyfriend's first time for dinner and we cannot wait to come back. This is a place for people who know how to eat and if this isn't your typical go to, then come with an open mind! Great flavors, loved the portions, and service was friendly and knowledgeable. Perfect for lunch or dinner!

Our experience was sub par. We expected better, having been multiple times. We specifically went for the special wagyu special, but it was sold out which was disappointing. The meals we got were still good, but we wished there was a better option for two to share for Valentine’s Day.

Hoping next time we have an even better experience.

I’ve dined here several times and have never been disappointed. This is a place you’d find in NYC nestled right here in Scranton. Incredible service with even more incredible food. Items you won’t find anywhere else in this area and you can tell the Chef puts so much heart into every dish he creates. My absolute favorite place to go in Scranton.

I used to love Peculiar Slurp but they constantly change the menu and it feels like the quality has gone down drastically. They removed Pho for their HORRIBLE rice bowls. Flavorless and burnt. The pork belly shoyu ramen gets worse and worse each time they change it and it was amazing the first time.
From favorite to may never go back.

Great food. My wife said her ramen was like a hug in a bowl! We shared a brisket bomb serving, each had a pork belly ramen, then shared dessert. All great.

As always, Peculiar went above and beyond expectations. Our drinks were always full and our food came out promptly. The tuna wonton tacos were STUFFED, seasoned perfectly with just the right amount of dressing. My husband’s tender, juicy pork dish was more than enough for two meals with a salad that had dressing he raved about. My brisket bibimbap (a personal favorite) was flavorful and the various ingredients were so well-balanced I was able to get a little bit of everything with each bite.

Good effort but not authentic enough taste. The pho broth was not real and the Korean BBQ sauce was weird. The noodles in the tame had nice texture .

This is a regular stop for us. The food was absolutely delicious, and my husband and I each got a second meal out of our orders. We couldn’t be happier! I would order the steak & octopus fried rice over and over again. The live music was wonderful, and everything felt warm & cozy on a bitterly cold night. Can’t wait to go back!

The best part of the meal were the small plates, the tuna tacos and Kimchi buns were delicious. The poke bowl and pork belly ramen were ok but nothing special. The duck special was overly salty with too much soy sauce. We also didn’t realize the cocktails on the menu were canned.

Always love the food at Peculiar Slurp! This visit, I enjoyed the Bahn Mi buns and the Bulgogi Brisket Bowl with a side of Kimchi. The Bulgogi came out sizzling and the brisket was so tender. It was a great mixture of tastes!

We love Peculiar Slurp, though we don’t make it to Scranton nearly as often as we would like.

This particular trip we had a great meal but felt the service and ambiance wasn’t quite what we were used to. The server wasn’t all that attentive - thankfully another server (not ours) was able to help us out after awhile. The music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other.

This was our first time here and our first time eating this type of food. The waitress was very informative with the menu and made very good recommendations when asked. We brought our two 14 year old nephews and our 7 year old daughter. Everyone was very pleased with their selections and with the establishment. Will definitely be going back again!!!

It was a friends birthday and she has been wanting to try Peculiar Slurps so we had a girls lunch. It was great - for for our picky friend and one that is gluten free. We are looking forward to going again.

Best restaurant in NEPA! Food is fresh and creative. Certainly not the run of the mill pizza joint or Italian restaurant that over saturates this area. The house drinks were absolutely amazing. We had the lavender lemononna and it blew us away, never tasted anything as good. My 6 year old daughter who never wants to eat anything loved it as well. Yohr doing you and your tastebuds a disservice but not trying Peculiar Slurp!

A nice place for lunch but don't count on hearing much of the conversation. It is something different and fresh and brings a nice vibe to the area. However, if you have a wheat/gluten allergy or sensitivity there are a few options, just make sure they take it seriously! (My wontons had to be removed from my plate after I asked for none due to wheat/gluten sensitivity). They should be more alert.
