Our speciality
1. We cook our broth for days by using large amount of pork bones with our special ingredients to make the soup into a thick, rich , milky pork bone soup.

2. We use the premium Berkshire Pork for our chashu , pot-stewed then grill!
3. We pick the highest quality brown eggs, soft boiled them then marinate with soy and sweet wine.

What is the best way to eat Ramen?
1. Eat while the soup is boiling hot!
2. Slurp like no one around ! Slurping actually aerates the broth and enhances the flavor of the noodles, avoid your noodles going soft and droopy, so eat quick and loudly!

Our policy
1. Tips? It's up to you ;)
2. No carry out. We want to keep our noodles at the best quality.

This place has turned me on to Ramen like never before. I didn't really ever like Ramen until I had the Ramen Jin's Spicy Miso Ramen. OMG, it is awesome. I'm really going to miss this place when I move from Houston.

This place wasn't too bad in terms of ramen. I got the shoyu ramen. It's not like your normal clear shoyu broth. It was more like a tonkotsu broth. The broth was good (maybe because tonkotsu is my favorite kind of broth... but it definitely was not traditional shoyu) I was absolutely inlove with the tempura sweet potatoes. I really liked the li hing mui powder that they put on them. My only complaint was that they didn't have any ramen additions on the menu (ex: butter, garlic, extra menma, or corn.) Overall, the place was nice, employees were helpful, and the food was good. I'd come back here again.

love this place, opens early for lunch, and even open during dinner times. Their pork belly is perfect, along with all their appetizers. The broth is flavorful too, I usually finish every last drop. I do miss their pork belly boa, i ordered several in one sitting and loved it, last two times I've been they were out. Still the staff if friendly and the service is fast.

You simply cannot say no to a perfectly suspended broth of fatty and protein-y pork broth, marinated egg, corn, ramen noodles and I forgot what else danced with my tastebuds for 9 of the most filling and fulfilling dollars spent on a dinner. But it was simply amazing.

If you don't know what 'ramen' means ... go to this place and give it a try. It is a typical Japanese soup like dish that is fresh made and really refreshing. I have a Japanese friend with me and even she was excited about the quality of the food.

*warning* this review might be a little lengthy. I brought my mother/grandmother and friends out to Ramen Jin at about 7PM on a Friday Evening. In between the dark "Brilliant Day Spa" and "Nail Salon", the ramen shop has a red glow that could catch your attention from any corner of the plaza. The decor is of the restaurant is nice and minimal, simple wooden tables/desks with unique wood paneling on the walls. Ordering process was fairly simple, we ordered two orders of the Tonkotsu, Miso, and one order of the Tonkutsu Shoyu Ramen as our main dishes and Gua Bao as an appetizer. The orders of Tonkotsu and Miso arrived fairly quickly within 5~ minutes,however the last order did not arrive until I brought it up with the food presenter. At this point it had been about 10 minutes and it seemed as if they stabbed the ticket already. After I brought it up it took another 5 minutes for them to make it and then serve it to me. I would just suggest that they double check their tickets before stabbing the ticket. While I waited for my order to come I did get to eat the Gua Bao which is a traditional Taiwanese Steamed pork bun. DELICIOUS. All I have to say... because then I received my ramen. The broth was good, not too salty like you would find in most Japanese ramen, perhaps a reflection on Brian Chen's (the owner) Taiwanese and Japanese heritage or just personal taste. The noodles were also good, not undercooked or overcooked but just right. All in all the combination of the two along with the huge chunk of Chasu-Pork Belly left a good taste in my mouth.

I loved the place. It is so traditional and quite, typical for a spot enjoying lunch and dinner with your loved one. If you like ramen, then this would be the right place for you. Everything is alright, except that I just wish they put more ingredient such as pork belly, seaweed,tofu, egg,etc.

Simply put its very good ramen. The soup broth and the pork taste amazing. Only if the noodles inside were a bit better it would be perfect! (I ate ramen at the number one ramen shop in Japan located in Wakayama when they won that year. This place is pretty good so that's saying a lot.)
