DAIKOKUYA Original Noodle & Rice-Bowl
Everyone talks about this place. Good food, good crowd and good service is what completes Daikokuya. This authentic Japanese food joint's specialty is the Daikoku Raumen soup, pork and egg combination dish. You might just get confused as to what to order from the extensive variety of Ramens on offer. They kind of have an open-air kitchen where you can actually watch the chefs make your meal. There is a long waiting list at most times out here. But the wait is worth!
Highly over rated!. We visited from out of town and tried this restaurant based on good reviews.. We waited for over an hour to be seated. The staff had a very nonchlant, unfriendly attitude. I ordered their standard ramen noodle and was surprised when the egg, meat and other ingredints were actually cold! In other words I had a bowl of lukewarm noodles. The chicken teriyaki had too much honey in it. The booth was broken and the restaurant looked rundown. The place looks nothing like their web site depicts. For ramen go elsewhere
besides the cha-siu, noodle and fried rice are both obviously not as good as the HQ in LA
i got there @ off-peak hour when there's no one else but the people already seated, plenty of space and waiter insitsted us to write names on the board and called us the same time we wrote our names on the board, wtf?
The cabbage salad is great! The fried rice was good but if you're into spicy noodles this isn't the place for you. Their soup base is made with pork and it is very milky. I think Orochon noodles is a better place.
This place is awesome, I love the combo plates, they cook per order, I know the wait to get a table is long and the wait to get your food cooked is about 20 minutes but they have large portions and you know your food has not been sitting under warmers all day. Highly recommended for those that love ramen, rice bowls and japanese food other that sushi or sashimi.
the ramen soup is to die for. i frequent this place once a week for the great raumen. they also serve pitchers of beer which makes this place awesome. the tuna is always fresh and tasty and the service is great
One of my favorite eateries. The signature dish is the raumen, but the rice bowls and combo plates are also fantastic. My favorite is the fried spicy tuna appetizer. The only possible downside might be the ambiance... but only if you're someone looking for style over substance. Daikokuya is definitely more of a diner than a restaurant, but for me (and most others), it's not an issue.
