The inside of the restaurant was not bad - the main portion was bright and clean. The part we sat in was darker, and smaller. The chairs did not look comfy but were actually comfortable and perfect for my short self. On the other hand, if you were not vertically challenged, may not be so good for your legs.
So, Barb limped her way over and being that she did not eat pork, had a hard time with the menu. For one, the waitress barely spoke English. We didn't speak Japanese - ha! Even if I did take lessons.

However, after wrestling with her choices (limited options, she opted for the seafood broth without seaweed, without charsui.
Our friendly but forgetful waitress forgot to tell the chef not to put pork or seaweed. They took it out - but Barb had them remake it because she is allergic to pork. (An actual allergy - I looked it up). Barb didn't enjoy it too much and was still hungry. :)

The noodles were nice - soft but chewy, not tough and definitely improvement on CupofNoodle ramen. :)
