Reviews for Bansho Ramen

We came for ramen, so we ordered the Bansho Ultimate Ramen $17 and Onion Tonkatsu $14 with an extra egg ($1.75). The Bansho Ultimate broth was a combination of pork broth and miso (broth needs more flavor), with fried burdock, thick pork belly (so good!), woodear, ground pork and half of a soft-boiled egg. Overall 3.8/5 stars. Onion Tonkotsu came with sliced fried pork cutlet (I recommend getting it on the side of you don't like soggy skin), onion and butter corn. I full review

The service was horrendous. We were the only table at lunch and there were three staff. I went here BECAUSE of the Yelp stars. Very disappointed in pretty much most of the expert. I tend to be very loving and generous on food reviews but bad service in an empty restaurant and average food deserve a mention.

Very solid ramen! Bansho Ramen checks all the boxes with their ramen. The noodles are cooked through in the center while still having soaked in the flavor of the broth. The chasu and other toppings are spot on. The broth was very rich and creamy, without being too heavy. The ramen does run a little pricy here, however. It was about $14 for a bowl, ranging up to $17. This steep pricing is a little discouraging to getting extra add-ons which does hurt the overall experience.
