The walls and the styling make it seem real. I almost caught myself saying that this is a REAL ramen noodle place to my friend… but cmon, the walls look 400 years old, but I doubt Washington and his cohorts were chillin here back in the day.

Soon after we sat down, the walls became people waiting for a seat. The other diners seemed to notice and either they felt rushed or the staff provoked them to. That being said, it’s comfortable, fun, and the focus is the meal – because straight in front of you is another short wall. Focus on the food is good for the head.
