    This is a cute place with lots of great photo opportunities in the cocktails and a great menu. I liked the taste of all the drinks and all the food. It is definitely expensive, but really creative drinks.

    This is a cute and hip new ramen place in Jack London, but the quality of the raumen didn't meet my expectations. The toppings were great, the pork belly was wonderful, but yet the broth and the noodle were below average. It needed more salt, and more importantly, needs to be served piping hot. If you are looking for a raumen place with less salt, try here maybe, but in general, I wouldn't recommend this place if you are craving for a good raumen.

    The atmosphere is absolutely gorgeous. We were greeted by everyone at the restaurant. The staffs made us feel welcomed. The food was amazing even the drinks. The only thing was a noise from the train tracks due to the location. Over rall, I love this restaurant and will be definitely coming back again.

    The vegetarian ramen tasted of nothing, the expensive drinks were watered down and the appetizers are very expensive

    The setting was aesthetically glamorous, the Paper Plane cocktail was dreamy while the Noka Ranger cocktail came in a cool (various colors) Super Sentai mug, the Ramens (Classic Tonkatsu, Black Garlic Tonkatsu, Spicy Red Miso) were all divine with a wonderfully balanced creamy, rich broth and ample melt-in-your-mouth Braised Pork Belly slices. We have been to many top-notch Ramens in the South Bay and East Bay including Orenchi, Ramen Nagi, JINYA Ramen, HiroNori, Ippudo Ramen in Berkeley, Ramen Shop in Oakland...and Noka Ramen was the BEST for us, especially for the generous portion of Chashu Pork and the extra creamy broth.

    Delicious spicy ramen. Friendly service! Good ambience and decor. They have a kids memo which is great - wish they had a ramen broth option for the kid.

    The appetizers are a terrific smorgasbord of yum that you will have to hold back in order to try the ramen. The ramen was chewy and perfect. Lots of truffles in various dishes. I would say the cocktails could be better and not as copious for the price but cute and fun. There was a lot of garlic, a bit of an overkill, but still tasty. One thing I wouldn't really order are the short rib ramen and burger, a bit too salty for our tastes. Stick withe the classic ramens. Worthwhile.

    Very nice service and delicious food, a terrific addition to Jack London Square. We sat outside despite the cool weather because it was too loud inside. Heat lamps made the patio comfortable and we felt safer since the pandemic is not over.

    I've never ever heard of a restaurant that charges for chili oil. We asked for a bit of chili oil and were told to order it. They also separately charge customers to use an app to order. This isn't a problem in and of itself. But bake that charge into your menu prices instead of making it a separate charge when customers pay. Now, let's talk about food. It left me feeling sad. For the price I was paying, I expected a flavorful broth. What we got was salty, salty broth and very low quality noodles. The good things about this place? The cocktails were delicious and the restaurant is decorated so well. All in all, I wouldn't go back.
