Reviews for Bansho Ramen

This particular location has seen a lot of changes through the years, from hot pot to boba. And now, it's a ramen shop! A very standard layout, kept constant despite the different hands that have owned the lease. My party of five was seated immediately; they squished two tables together to fit us. There's also counter seats but they're against a wall, and I can't imagine that eating there would be very nice. My group ordered edamame, two rice bowls, and a full review
I've been coming to Berkeley off and on for a graduate program at UCB for the past few months, and I try and make it a point to try different restaurants every time. I tend to skew towards Japanese restaurants when I'm here because my options in the Midwest are, at best, mediocre (that includes Chicago). After a 13 hour day of air travel, I was looking for a place where I could sit in the back, drink an Asahi Super Dry, watch the NFL playoffs, and eat some ramen and full review

Loved this place. Came in with no expectations and this placed wowed me. I got the ultimate ramen with added chashu. The pork belly that comes with it was divine!!! This is definitely my second favorite ramen place in the bay - first being mensho - and guess what.... no crazy long hour wait! I'm definitely coming back when I'm in Berkeley.
