Hello Gorgeous,
At NōKA Ramen, our mission is to introduce Bay Area with our “Hakata” Tonkotsu style — creamy and rich pork broth; pairing with HOMEMADE artisan noodles — smooth, firm and bouncy texture; using Japanese techniques to deliver our guests the golden experience.

Come for noods, stay for cocktails!

A fun time out! Good food and service. We got a free granita dessert for Mother's Day. Good for kids too. Uniquely Bay Area. I hope they stick around cause we'll be back!

About the restaurant
Since the early days of Little Star Pizza in San Francisco, we have taken enormous pride in serving our award-winning deep-dish and thin-crust pizzas. By offering organic salads, appetizers made from scratch, house-made dressings and sauces, oven-baked sandwiches, and fresh dough tossed daily, our once small pizzeria has blossomed into a dynamic neighborhood restaurant. Beyond dozens of signature dishes, our bar serves artisan cocktails, carefully selected wines, and beer in an elegant yet comfortable environment. Our commitment to our employees, community, schools, and local nonprofit organizations embodies who we are. We treat our guests like family, invest in our employees, and use responsible and high-quality ingredients to continue the Little Star legacy. Thank you for choosing to dine with us.

The signature Star Deep Dish (with caramelized garlic) and BBQ Chicken Detroit style were absolutely fantastic even though two of us couldn’t finish more than one piece each. Baked wings were also superb with a nice herb flavor. You get your money’s worth at Star!!

The show like Benihana they try to do. It’s fine but working long hours and doing the dangerous job I do. It’s the quality of the ambience of food and entertainment of talk with the chef. Second time we went my wife and I was awesome, the chef knew how to cook well and it was just overall once again a delight. Looking forward to get back there again soon.

Our Mojito and frozen Margarita were delicious beyond words. They paired fabulously with Chevy’s warm and ultra-crispy chips and yummy salsa. We shared a sizzling fajita combo — shrimp, carnitas, steak and chicken — that was outstanding! It came to the table crackling hot. We scraped clean the black iron cooking plate so as not to miss a bite of the carmelized onions and peppers. We rolled outta there totally blissed out. Chevy’s, despite your closing lots of locations — boo hoo — the Union City restaurant was superb in its attentive service and fabulous food! Thank you!
