Everything was great! Enjoyed our meal very much. Will definitely be back.
I've never had ramen before so this was a great starting point for me! My friend and I shared the Garlic Teriyaki Wings, which had just the right amount of char on it for me. It was amazing! We both had ramen bowls. His was the Tonkotsu and I had the Shoyu. I loved everything about the ramen bowl. It was flavorful and filling. I could definitely go back over and over again for it. I also had a cocktail (the Goku). It was a lime green drink and was kind of tart. It was so smooth that you could not tell that there was alcohol in it, but you did feel it rather quickly.
The not so loveable part of the evening was our waiter. He seemed very impatient and would walk away midsentence without hearing what we wanted. It was very rude and inconsiderate. He consistently did that throughout the course of our meal.
Overall, I would go back because of the food, however I hope to get a waiter with a better attitude.
The food and service were great!
The food was delicious and well portioned. The service was attentive without hovering and the staff is friendly.
The quality of food is lower than expected. We ordered the tonkotsu ramen and it came out with wontons. The soup doesn't taste that great either.
Only one waiter but it’s not the restaurants fault. It’s unemployment malign servers not want to work. Food was great and beer was cold!
Only complaint was about another guest that was screaming. Food was great some of the best and most flavorful ramen I've have.
Great food and staff. It was our first time at a Ramen restaurant and we were not disappointed, the food was fresh and delicious
Food was mediocre, expected better service. Overall was good, would like to try a real authentic noodle restaurant before returning.
Good food for the price. Enjoy the atmosphere. Been before and will go back again.
Wonderful like always:) will definitely come back again and again!
Gohan bowl, seafood ramen, and the ram'n cheese bites were all immaculate. 10/10 would recommend. Service was great as well. We will be back soon.
The shrimp buns are delicious! The poke bowl was great too. So, glad they added something new.
Great restaurant great service saying great food every time we go
We celebrated my son’s 18th birthday here and everyone loved it! Wonderful staff, amazing food, and great atmosphere. We will definitely return.
Everything was outstanding. I got the lamb chops and a warm cauliflower salad and it was the perfect lunch.
It was delicious, I love the vibe of the restaurant, I don’t live in Raleigh so I don’t know when I will be back. But I’m definitely going there when I do return to Raleigh.
Great food and great service. We look forward to returning soon.
This place for exceeded my expectations it was great
Highly recommend, some great items on their menu...food is really good !
Seafood Ramen was good, duck ramen was not so good. Shishito peppers were very bland and a bit too burnt. Topped with something that looks and tastes like goldfish food. I will certainly return, but my date and I weren’t very impressed.
Friendly service! Food is amazingly scrumptious :)
Great food, service and atmosphere! We come every year with family when they come to town for a volleyball tournament. Never disappoints!!
Nice place for a quiet date, and speedy service. Shout out the the male waiter that night on 2nd floor.
Excellent! Love their menu top to bottom and nevery skip the drink menu.
Had an awesome experience as always at Tonbo. If you’re looking for authentic ramen, poke and saki (awesome and unique beer and cocktail drink menu) then I’d highly recommend this place!
Great food! I had the shrimp buns and vegetarian ramen and they were the best I’ve ever had. We’ll definitely go again!
Excellent food! Great people working there! We have eaten here several times and always a great experience!
Food was delicious, service was great, it was a little noisy, but I think partially because there are now fewer tables and more space due to COVID.
I've been to Tonbo twice now, both times the food & service were both fantastic. Their prices are extremely reasonable for the quality and portion sizes you receive. Highly recommend.
Amazing food in a casual downtown spot. Will definitely be making this place a regular part of our date night rotation!
The food was excellent, as far as the service, eh it needed more spice
Tasty Christmas Eve COVID dinner.
Simply Amazing!! Food was great, the atmosphere was relaxed and chill. Definitely adding to my “Favorites” short list.
Food was tasty and the environment was intimate and comfortable. Would highly recommend it.
Start with a (now) INSIDER TIP: We booked bar seating through the OpenTable app, however, once we checked in they told us bar seating is first come first serve (they had a table held for us anyway). Regardless, ask to sit upstairs! Downstairs looks unfinished and not very cozy; upstairs is where the “dinner date” ambiance is at. Luckily the bar was open and we were helped by the nice man working the bar. He made a great cocktail recommendation for me and whipped it up fast (something with dragonfly in the name I think). The food came out very quickly and hot and was delicious. Highly recommend starting with the fried cheesy ramen bites. My boyfriend said he had ramen once and didn’t like it, but now he does after trying it at Tonbo. :)
Easily one of the best meals I've ever had. Will definitely be back again and again!
Always good food eat it multiple times a year great food for a good price
