+ Great tasting broth; Full of flavor, and not overfilled with salt
+ Noodles cooked to perfection.. just the right amount of chew
+ Reasonable prices
- Staff is a bit brisk.. I ordered the combo and was never asked which side I wanted.. I was just given something.
Satoshi is on a street full of other ramen noodle spots and Japanese restaurants. The place is rather small which is no big deal and we were seated across the noodle bar. The lady who took our order was pleasant but it's pretty much downhill from here. The tonkatsu ramen was not piping hot and the pork belly slices were overcooked and stringy. Maybe it was just an off day. The gyozas which came with the combo meal were crispy on the outside and pretty tasty. In the end, we should have just waited in line at Kotteri like everyone else.
Satoshi, not too shabby for an inexpensive meal.
The mabo tofu ramen was good. Service was fast and they do offer free WiFi. One of those place you run in and out of and enjoy playing tourist after filling your stomach with food. I would definitely come back.
Their shrimp tempuras were pretty darn good too.
If you want Chinese ramen, this is the place. As a Japanese, it was the first time for me to have ramen soup with Five Spices.
Below the line was originally (with slight edits) written in Dec 2009 (before Yelp France). I have been several times since and went there again tonight - still outstanding. The potsickers are sublime and for value, lamen and potstickers at 10.5 Euro is a great deal in Paris (or anywhere).
Two boiling cauldron of niku lamen miso broth so rich and full of goodness that it can be called stew. I spotted this steamy place a week earlier and felt it was going to be an Anthony Bourdain deal - I was right.
2PM Saturday and there is no room at the bar which seats about ten. The wait is only about 20 minutes. Its hot in there but cold outside and the aroma adds to the building excitement. Watching two pros work behind the counter is like watching a ritual. Everything happens at once and with cadence - noodles boiling, ingredients sliced, pot stickers frying, bowls prepared. The speed, dexterity and coordination incredible and it has to be because all this happens within a few square feet and just a inches from the people at the bar.
And the niku - Yes, yes it is!
Two bowls, a beer, a coke and pot stickers - 34 Euro (the coke and beer is expensive). If you're staying anywhere around here its walking distance - closest to the Pyramids Metro stop - but only a 5 minute walk from Musee de Louvre Metro at Palais Royal also.
Was not expecting so many japanese restaurants in Paris, but upon further inspection they all seem to be yakitori/sushi combination restaurants. I was not interested in these, but i did love ramen. So I was a bit hesitant in trying it in Paris, especially since just last year I was in Tokyo and the Yokohama ramen museum in gastronomic heaven. You walk into this place and the workers are asian that spoke fluent French, and also a chinese dialect. They were not speaking Japanese. Now onto the food. I ordered just the ramen it was €8.50 . Reasonable for Paris standards. Did not get any sides. The ramen was very good. Noodles were just how I liked them. Pork was melt in your mouth good. But the broth could have used a little more flavor. All in all i was very impressed and it was a nice surprise. Would definitely try their ramen.
Went here on a busy Sat. afternoon for lunch in November. Good service and large menu. We got the Szechuan noodle soup (spicy with ground pork) and a stir fry noodles with shrimp. And since we could not finish the noodles, they even gave us a "to go" box.
every summer, this mom&pop ramen house serves Hiyashi Chuka-cold ramen noodle topped with seaweed, egg, roast pork, cucumber and pickled radish served with a soy-vinegar dipping sauce w/ wasabi. a refreshing, tasty, healthy & cheap(8€) hot weather meal. in my opinion, the best in little tokyo.
