So disappointed with the quality of the food. We ordered two ramen bowls (one Spicy Tori Chicken and one Tanaka Rich Garlic with extra noodles) for take-out, which totaled nearly $40 (without tip). We were expecting professional-style, gourmet ramen dishes from a restaurant that claims to have “the best ramen in town”. Instead, we received bland, tasteless noodles coupled with watered-down soup that left us feeling rather dissatisfied. There were barely any garnishes or spices added to the soup base. The overall quantity of food is very small considering the very high-end prices. I wish I had just microwaved a $1 cup of noodles instead of purchasing food from Tanaka Ramen. I definitely recommend other ramen stores (Musashiya Ramen and Kameya Ramen) that will actually care about the quality of the food they serve you. We only ordered from Tanaka because every other good ramen place was closed on Monday. Mistakes were made. Other ramen restaurants I have been to have far better prices and offer larger and tastier portions. The overall quality of other local ramen places far surpasses that of Tanaka Ramen. You have a better chance of making tastier ramen at home - even if you cannot cook!

No frills ramen and zensai. Decent, filling, but not worth going out of the way for. Very consistent in flavor and what you would expect. They had a fun selection of sake and their house sake was mild and easy. Great for a cold Chicago evening.

I seriously don't get the hype. The ramen didn't taste like much and the appetizer sizes are outrageous compared to the price ($8 for a bun with one scrawny leg of tempura softshell crab..you could get a whole tempura softshell crab for $12 elsewhere). After eating for awhile we both started feeling sick. The boba tea is also very watered down and definitely made with flavoring powder and not real ingredients. The wait staff were fast and attentive though they look miserable, and the atmosphere was nice, but those are the only good things I can say about this place. Won't be back.

The environment was amazing and my ramen was delicious as well i ordered extra fish cakes on mine. And also tried the garlic wings which would recommend especially if you into a sweet type of garlic sauce. Waitresses were all very nice and they were also playing adventure time by the bar section. Also took a look at the drink menu which did catch my eye definitely want to go back and try a few.

Originally I tried to order a ramen and substitute one item, they would not let me do so. Then I received a beef ramen that was essentially chunks of fat in a broth. When noting this to my server he said that’s how the beef is and there is nothing he could do.
