The food is delicious, was prepared quickly, and was way cheaper than I was expecting for being located right in the middle of downtown. Service was great, they have delicious cocktails, and all their dining options are great!! We visited the ramen bar side, not the izakaya, so I can't speak to that, but if you're in the mood for really really good ramen, hit up Tonbo!

I love this place! The ramen is delicious and they have a very extensive sake menu. Not ideal for large parties and I would recommend reservations on the weekend

This was my first visit to a ramen restaurant and it definitely won't be the last! I went to this restaurant for Mother's Day with my wife and our kids. At first we thought the menu might be challenging for the younger ones, but it turned out fine. We ordered the Shoyu bowls for everyone except myself. The bowls were so tasty. The broth was smoky, aromatic and flavorful. The noodles, veggies and pork just hit the spot!

I had the Wyagu burger that was sandwiched between 2 ramen noodle "buns". I've never had a burger like this before. The patty was so moist and the addition of the over easy egg, mushrooms, pepper jack cheese, avocado, shishito tartar sauce just took it over the top! Despite that the fact that I was pretty full I still had to try some of the Shoyu bowl which I like said was delicious.

I can't recommend this restaurant enough and my family will be back in the near future!

Second time visiting. This time brought guests from 80 y.o. to teens. Everyone absolutely loved their choices from the buns, dumplings, ramen and sake. No room for dessert but can only imagine. Exceptional quality and presentation and our server Leo was outstanding!

We loved it! Our ramen was hot, flavorful, and so filling. Our drinks were delicious as well. We tried both desserts and would recommend both. It was a low key and lovely dinner.

I had been there before and knew what to expect. As always; the food was top notch. My wife is a big ramen fan and I'd been wanting to take her there for a while. We had a great evening there.

The food was great, though the buns are a bit overpriced. $9 for two servings of an appetizer is a bit much, but definitely worth it to try it once! That being said shrimp buns were fantastic, as were both the duck and miso ramen. Look forward to returning.

My wife and I enjoyed everything about this place; the interesting cocktails, hot, rich ramen broth, crispy and gooey centered green tea donuts with hot melted Videri chocolate. I was so happy to have found this place. Everyone there was polite and relaxed. We are definitely adding this place to our repertoire of dinner places.

Definitely recommend this place! Not only was the food delicious, I was surprised with how fast it came. My boyfriend and I both got ramen oh, and it's hands-down the best ramen and I've had anywhere. I also got a frozen old fashioned. One, I didn't know that existed. Two, I did not know how much I would enjoy it. We are definitely planning on returning.

We had an amazing time. We sat at the bar and our server was very upbeat and fun, she helped describe the different ramen to us (this was the first time going for one of us and the other of us didn't like the food before) and we ended up getting the most delicious food we could have hoped for. It was hot and fresh and came out of the ramen bar very quickly. The restaurant was clean, neat, and stocked and the ambiance was perfect.
I would reccomend this place to anyone looking for some quality ramen.

I didn't enjoy the food or the drinks. The ramen broth was flavorless and the noodles from the $0.13 pack at the grocery store are better. The service was OK but the food will keep me from returning.

The service upstairs was pretty slow and my shio ramen was served lukewarm. I requested to reheat and still served back lukewarm.
