KJ K, from Islip, gave the restaurant four stars.


“Sooo stoked to have a top notch Ramen restaurant in Patchogue,” he said. “You can tell their menu was put together by a real chef, their fluke crudo is beautifully balanced with a Momofuku vibe at a reasonable price. We also couldn't get enough of the beef tartare. But all of the apps aside - the ramen steals the show.”
