    The broth with the Ramen need more flavor. (Perhaps chicken broth)

    My wife and I went to Tondo Ramen for the first time and it was great. The food was delicious, especially the pork belly buns and green tea doughnuts. Like most places, they were a little understaffed but super friendly, taking the time to help us with trying sake for the first time, which we really liked. Both downstairs and upstairs were nice and small making for a good atmosphere.

    I took my daughter for her first experience of real ramen and it didn't disappoint. Sage was real friendly and the food was excellent. We did go early on a weekday so my noise level review may not be accurate for dinnertime and the weekends. But the overall review experience was really nice. Very pleasant staff and really, really good ramen!

    Our first visit to tonbow in the fall of 2021 left us speechless. The food was amazing as was the experience and value. Our second trip to Raleigh, in July 2022, a trip to Tonbow was high on our list of priorities. The food was okay but lacked that wow factor we had the first time. I’m hoping it was just an off night. TIP: ask to sit upstairs it’s a way better vibe up there.

    Unfortunately, the restaurant did not have enough staff to serve the tables they had seated. We waited for 30 minutes after being seated and never got service. We departed before we ordered or interacted with the overwhelmed staff.

    Every bite was delicious. We decided to do an appetizer medley. The warm cauliflower and the Ramen Mac & Cheese are both outstanding dishes. Definitely going back, this winter, to try the traditional hot ramen bowls.

    Great food! Little too loud for my taste, but we had a very wild group right next to us. Service as limited as they did not have enough folks waiting tables, but the effort was there.
