Top Review: “This is such a cute little Ramen restaurant! I love the ambiance and the food is really good too! I always get the Tonkotsu. The Chashu literally just melts in the mouth! It’s quite a drive from where I live but it’s worth it every time!“ – Manisha M.
Tei-An isn’t too expensive but isn’t the cheapest spot on our list.
It’s perfect for date nights, special occasions, or you want to treat somebody. The ambiance is excellent and will make you feel relaxed and comfortable.
This ramen restaurant is the brainchild of famous Dallas chef Teiichi Sakurai. Their noodles are made fresh in-house daily, and they’re known for their Japanese soba noodles.
Try one of their cold noodles for an entirely different ramen experience. As for their hot bowls, they do excellent tonkatsu ramen.
Top Review: “The star of the show here is the ramen. I’ve had world-class ramen in Chicago and Hawaii and the ramen at Tei-An is comparable. Better than Wabi House, better than Tatsu-Ya in Austin. Also relatively affordable at $12 considering the price of everything else and the ambiance you get to enjoy with your ramen.”Dylan B.
TEN ramen is from the same person behind Tei-An, and they’re a gem in the city.
You’ll find TEN ramen in a cozy stand-up bar spot in Sylvan Avenue. The shop gives off a hole-in-a-wall vibe.
There are no seats inside, and you slurp your ramen on a bar counter. It’s not the type of place you can lounge about after you finish your meal because of the setting.
The shop is definitely unique, but so many people swear by their ramen, so we think it’s worth it. They offer authentic Japanese flavors with cool menu items like spicy lobster ramen.
Make sure to also get their chashu or pork belly slices.
Top Review:“Definitely the best ramen I have ever had. Have been to others but Ten’s Sonkutsu is above and beyond. The broth has a flavor profile from the moon, and the chasu, is on another level as well, almost otherworldly. I have had ramen in MULTIPLE places but this is how I test the others. None have toppled it yet. At this point, it’s Ten for life!” – Charles S.
Top Review: “Super delicious! I highly suggest getting their shoyu. I usually prefer tonkatsu but their shoyu is far superior. I would come back in a heartbeat! If you’re just getting into ramen, come here and get the shoyu!“ – Kally T.
Top Review: “Multiple different vegetarian options and a list of customizations to choose from, make Ramen Hakata one of my favorite restaurants to visit whenever I’m in Dallas. Delicious dishes, reasonable prices, and a full- team approach to servicing every table.” – Kymberlee D.
Top Review: “My pick for the best ramen in town, and the best Karaage. Flavor here is on point for the Spicy Miso…Pork is the best in town they give a good sear and it melts in your mouth. Service is always prompt and takeout doesn’t disappoint either. They also have very fair prices, which is not the same I could say for other joints in Dallas.” – Dave G.
Top Review: “I absolutely love this place! I’ve only been there once but I love me some ramen and this might be the best ramen I’ve tasted in Dallas. It may not be super traditional but their recipe has been well thought out. Instead of the slider pork you get little chunks of pork belly that are so tender and add some depth to the soup.” – Julio R.
Top Review: “We eat here regularly. It is always great inside or takeout. We love the Spicy Tonkatsu sub thick noodles and then adding a bunch of egg, corn, etc. This five star review is based on about 15 visits . So comforting and always tastes as great as the last time. Service is always good too.” – Alexandria P.
Hanabi Ramen is a Japanese ramen and Izakaya restaurant with two locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
This ramen restaurant is a solid choice for any ramen lovers out there. They have several veggie options, but their bestseller is their seafood ramen. It’s got a tonkatsu base with shrimp, squid, octopus, Japanese littleneck, oysters, and a ton of toppings.
If you can’t pick just one flavor, they offer a half and half option. You can get these combinations: tonkotsu, spicy tonkotsu, black tonkotsu, miso, kara miso, and shoyu.
They also have an extensive menu with appetizers, rice dishes, and drinks.
Top Review: “If I could give 6 stars I would. Very authentic reminds me of ramen places in LA/Southern California. Great service, easy parking and it has a great amount of seating inside (looks small from the outside). Definitely recommend the baisen shoyu and spicy tonkatsu!” – Nicole G.
Jinya Ramen Bar is one of the more popular ramen spots with many locations all over the country. It started in Tokyo in 2000 and debuted in the US in Los Angeles.
Here in Dallas, it delivers the same quality it does in each location. They focus on their broth and noodles with six signature broth flavors. They also boast their 20-hour broth process that gives that richness to their broths.
Their original Jinya tonkotsu flavor was what made them famous but try their other standout dishes too. Order the chicken ramen, spicy creamy vegan ramen, or Jinya tonkotsu black.
They’ve got tons of vegetarian and gluten-free options, plus other Japanese dishes.
