Unpretentious Japanese noodle house provides a simple menu of ramen bowls with all of the fixings.- Google
"Lobster Garlic Pork Ramen with Soft Shell Crab!"
"Sounds simple, but it takes 20 hours to get that rich creamy broth."

Finally a place that convinced that Ramen can be great. After a few sad attempts to eat a good Ramen between the Silicon Valley and even in San Fransisco, Ramen Parlor has changed my view on Ramen. Came here at around 1:15 and waited in line. Even though there was around 12 people other than us waiting, the wait was very short! The place is small so it doesn't seat a big number of people. The interior is interesting, almost like a cabin. R had the Crab meat Ramen and I had the garlic lobster pork Ramen. Both were really I mean really good, topped with fried soft shell crab and with delicious bbq pork slices. Even though we though both were really good, our favorite was by far the garlic lobster pork ramen. It's super good and extremely rich in flavor. The broth didn't taste at all like seafood, it just tasted great but The noodles are one of the best I have ever tasted. And comes with two quail eggs, I personally prefer just a normal egg though. By far the best Ramen in the area!

The Garlic Lobster broth was delicious, though on the saltier side. I definitely drank a lot of water after, but the saltiness was worth it to have the delicious ramen! There is a parking lot with free parking around the restaurant. Expect a wait, though not as long as Ramen Dojo around the corner.

We always always always end up here because the line at Ramen Dojo is ridiculously long. Ramen is pretty decent and I think people are starting to realize this as this place now is starting to have a line as well.

Unique ramen dishes such as the parlor ramen with lobster broth and soft shell crab, the noodles are perfectly al dente and the flavors are great. Only drawback is that they don't serve hot tea.

Excellent ramen! My family and I tried this place when we found out it has the same owner as Ramen Dojo down the street. We are big fans of Ramen Dojo but the wait is just too long sometimes. We found that Ramen Parlor has the same level of quality, at least for the garlic pork broth. The only difference is the kind of mix-ins they have. For example, Ramen Dojo includes whole garlic cloves, and Ramen Parlor doesn't. Even if you order extra garlic, it's going to be roasted bits of garlic, not whole cloves. This place has a parking lot and lots more seating than Ramen Dojo. Highly recommend trying this place if you're stuck waiting in the cold for a table at Ramen Dojo.

While the garlic pork broth of Ramen Dojo is fantastic, Ramen Parlor (who is owned by the same person) has a different menu that is just as savory and delicious. And as an added bonus, it doesn't have the same insane line as Dojo - though the lines have been increasing lately. Parlor is known for its lobster ramen, which is a true treat. If it's your first time here, give it a try. I haven't seen any other ramen shop that offers this.

I went here only after I was tired of waiting in line at Ramen Dojo, but this place is great as well! They are known for their lobster based ramen. Quality is the same and it has more space and parking. Would come back here again.

If you are fan of heavier and spicy ramen and seafood, I am pretty sure you will love Ramen Parlor. I always get the lobster broth with extra fried garlic (sorry coworkers! ). I love that you can get fried soft shell crab with your ramen and you can even order extra of this. The line gets CRAZY so make sure you get there before it opens. There is also a small parking lot that fills up quickly. Ambiance is that of a usual ramen shop, cute and cozy with great service! They can get busy but they will bring your food out quickly and keep your water or tea filled! Definitely give this place a try if you are a ramen lover.
