Sobo Ramen is a Fusion (Japanese-Inspired) ramen shop.  We are very proud that our ingredients are sourced from our local farmers; Our organic bones are from Llano Seco in Chico. The pork from Coleman Natural. The chicken and bones are from Petaluma Poultry in Petaluma. Our organic produces are from Avila's Farms in Hollister. The egg is cage free organic, from GV Poultry in Ripon.  And our noodles are custom-made in the Bay Area. Every ingredient is uniquely paired with each soup. Sobo Ramen also currently offers a vegan and a gluten free ramen, we have something for everyone.

To us, ramen is not only a bowl of comfort food; it contains the spirit of the farmers, ranchers, chef and origins of its beginnings. Food connects us with people locally and globally, while comforting each other through community, conversation, and nourishment. It brings us great gratification that we are able to serve you something we love.

I had the spicy miso, which was very tasty. The egg was nicely cooked, the chashu was falling apart tender (overdone for me), the broth tasty and spicy, and the noodles toothsome. Can't say much about noodle flavor nuances because of the spice level, but my tummy was happy! Use the bathroom before coming, because theirs is through a labyrinth of tunnels, past active kitchens, etc.

This place is very good and the prices are very reasonable. It's not a 'scene' and that's a good thing because the service is great with attentive wait staff even during a busy weekend lunch rush. You can definitely go there on a casual, chill, low-key vibe and still enjoy yourself solo, date, or with friends. Try the chicken shoyu! They have good vegetarian options too!

Good broth, good noodles, and great prices. There's some real crappy ramen out there...this is not one of those places.

There are not a lot of good Asian restaurants in nor cal. This is an exception. I've been here several times during my summer internship. The spicy black tonkotsu ramen is the best. You can also customize your ramen if you're particularly picky. They get quite busy during lunch, so if you can come a little before the rush, the wait isn't that long! Food: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Location: 3/5 (it's in Chinatown so there are a lot of other Asian options!)

Delicious ramen. I am a ramen expert and have been all over the planet in search of the perfect restaurant and Sobo has it all. Come here if you want a taste of ambrosia.

I've walked by this place many times, but never went in because someone told me it wasn't very good. Today we have it a try. The service was decent, the hot tea came in a super tiny pot, the ramen was pretty tasty but the soup want super hot as it should be. Worth the ramen they have pre design selections or you can build your own.

This is a pretty good ramen place with quick service and helpful portions. I literally Sat down, ordered and my food came like 5 minutes later.

The ramen was full of flavor and the restaurant itself has a nice, homely-modern feel to it. Servers camper sparingly but the food is what you come for with a reasonably sized portions and many different specialties
