Quick service, food was good attentive staff. Over all liked it
Middle of the road ramen that is pretty pricey for the amount you get. Shrimp buns were the highlight of the meal. Loud music playing, not great for conversation if that’s what you’re going for. Server was friendly and attentive.
Phenomenal meal. My friend and I split pork belly buns, the cauliflower salad, wings, and a Gohan bowl. Oh, and the doughnuts!
All were stellar. Thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. I look forward to going back and trying the Ramen.
Great waiter! Great food!
Ramen is decent, but honestly, their side dishes actually win it for me. I recommend trying the Ram'n cheese. Beer selection is also good. A bit pricey, though (ramen is$15-17, sides are $7-10).
Started off with a saki flight. Even our non saki drinker loved it. Ordered 2 ramen bowls and one gohan bowl. Both were very good. For a Monday night the place was packed. Recommend making reservations as last time we tried to go was a 45 min wait time. Food and service do not dissappoint.
The food was delicious, but the restaurant seemed overwhelmed. We ordered the Raleigh Restaurant Week special menu, and all of the food was brought out at the same time: appetizer, main course, and dessert! We were sitting at a tiny table for two, so it was very unpleasant to have all those dishes crowding us. Our waiter also hardly checked on us at all. I ordered a glass of wine with my dinner and had to wait about twenty minutes before a waiter brought it to the table. Although the food was very good, I do not plan to dine in at this restaurant again.
The hot cauliflower salad was exquisite and the ramen is on point!
Had not been there in a while and can say their food and service keep getting better. The pork belly buns were amazing. The Shoyu ramen is a great choice. The Sake flight(s) were solid. Will definitely go again.
We had the pork tonkotsu ramen- the to lotus broth was super heavy and the noodles were soggy. The pork belly was amazing and Perfectly cooked. The soy marinated eggs were just OK. The dumplings in the soup were falling apart.
We told our server we were ready to order and his comment was “you just got here I’m gonna take this persons order (pointing to another table) and I’ll come back.” Roughly fifteen minutes later he returned after stopping at other tables. Very poor service !
Will not likely return.
Really cute little restaurant. Fantastic food and really great service. Could use more seating and room, and a little bit pricey, but not bad! Very good experience there.
The food is always so good. And so is the service
Amazing! I have no complaints. Love the food :) The service was great too!!
We did not enjoy the experience. Food and service was not that good.
Staff was very friendly, food was amazing, and reserving a table was very easy. We will be back!
Always an amazing experience. Great food and the atmosphere is perfect
Food was delicious. Chef kiss!
Damn, it was good! Food was hot, fresh, and so flavorful! My husband said if we lived in Raleigh, he’d eat here at least three times a week. Just delicious!!
Good service and great food
Excellent food. Temperature was bit uncomfortable, sitting right under an AC vent, but it's an old building so what can you do? Great service, delicious ramen. Try it.
Definitely one of my favorite restaurants, everything is so sooo good.
The food was really good, warm and hearty. Loved the service too!
Service was very good, as was the food!
They did not rush us or over or under serve us! Enjoyable
Tonbo ramen has ramen of the highest quality. I would recommend them to anyone who loves good food for a fair price. I usually get the shoyu with added pork belly. If you’re reading this let me decide for you, eat here you won’t regret it.
Very, very good food. Fast service, considering they are understaffed like everyone is right now. I could see if you were buying lots of tapas it could get expensive, but just getting ramen is quite affordable.
Food was great and came out quickly. The restaurant wasn’t super crowded which was nice. My one complaint was that we weren’t able to order cocktails as the bartender had left, but it seemed like we were just unlucky in coming in between shifts as other people that got there before us had cocktails. Not a big deal though. Overall, great night.
Food was great! Some issues with supply chain… was out of sparkling sake, strawberry flavor and sake slushee machine was broken.
Service was good. Food was excellent.
Though I feel as though Tonbo is good for the majority of people, I felt as though it was not as tasty as I expected it to be. Also, my boyfriend and I ordered the Duck Ramen and it made our stomachs sick for the rest of the day into the night. For the money we spent, definitely not worth it.
Great food, great service, excellent experience over all and will return. Highly recommend the donuts!
Food was well priced and flavorful. Would go back for lunch or take out.
Food was really good
Love the place. Food was great. Service was slow but only one woman was waiting on the whole second floor. Give that woman a raise!!! Like really, she deserves it
Very accommodating and attentive wait staff. Excellent choices of ramen. Also we enjoyed the saki flights and desserts. Good price for a fabulous meal for four.
Me and my friends had an amazing time in the restaurant. Great food, great seating, and it was hilarious watching my friends fail at using chopsticks.
Food and ambience were fantastic. The only thing is while the workers were helpful and timely, they seemed jaded about their work and were not very friendly and treated us as if we were a hassle to them.
The ramen here is excellent! We had the tonkatsu and the miso as well as the shrimp buns. We felt kind of bad for the host person, they had to serve everyone, take care of the door/seating, and handle to go orders. It was a little chaotic for one person to handle. Everything was great they probably just needed one more server. Just know that you may need to be patient if you go here but the food is super worth it.
Fantastic food - god size servings and food came out fast! Recommend the fried cheese ramen but the portion was small (3 pieces - really needs to be 4). Service was excellent. Cute place but make reservations, smaller space.
Great service and food!!!
