If you like to make your own Gyoza, this is how. If you like someone else to make them, come to Katana Ya Ramen Downtown and taste them the way they should be.

Tiny Japanese restaurant drawing long lines for its ramen, though it serves sushi too.- Google
"My favorite is the fried chicken ramen with rich miso broth."
"Possibly the best Japanese noodle place in San Francisco."

The ramen was pretty good. I didn't like the doneness of the egg. It was a cold hard boiled egg. The noodles were a bit tougher than I prefer. The miso broth was delicious and I really liked the gyoza in the ramen. They also had corn which I love in the ramen.

Decent ramen and the uni-ikura don was excellent. I've had better, but if the line isn't too long and I'm craving ramen, then I would go back.

Good ramen at a fair price. If the wait is not too long, get on the list. You won't leave hungry.

Get ready for a wait, especially for dinner, but if you have a bit of time to spare, it is worth it. Noooo reservations. Much more authentic Japanese food than is found at many restaurants in the Bay Area. They certainly have sushi, but this is a restaurant where you should try to branch out. Try the sukiyaki, their locally famous ramen, or my favorite takoyaki.

I've visited San Francisco last month and this place last night of there. The staff, one of two women, looked like the asian, was very rude. She treated me as jumping a restaurant bill even though I had a credit card in my hand. She flagged down and hailed "No no no" with the bill in her hand. After I paid, she threw away a pen and bill in front me. Because, I think I didn't give a tip. holy crap. Please don't expect the tips from every tourists. A ramen? not bad. Just if you want to eat some fair priced meal in San Francisco, visit this place.

Terrible service. Followed their system and waited cold outside for 20+ mins and they just let people in without asking. Very normal taste only value is close late. So disappointing and won't come again.

Maybe I have tried too many good ramen all over the places. Still some improvement required to meet my minimum standard for ramen.

Pretty decent chicken katsu. We also shared a dragon roll and california roll which was pretty good as well. Service was prompt and efficient.
