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

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

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.

Maru Ramen

It comes with chashu or pork belly with soft-boiled egg and many toppings.

Some of their bestsellers are the tonkatsu ramen and the miso ramen.

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: “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.

If you like your ramen spicy, this next spot is the one for you. Oni Ramen has two locations in the DFW area.

They’re known for their spicy ramen options or their “demon spiced” broths. They have miso, tonkotsu, assari, and vegetarian bases.

For every bowl, you can choose from 1 to 5 spice levels. Their spiciest is the Oni Reaper ramen which is also a bestseller. Another option is their spicy garlic chicken broth, the Tokyo Black.

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.
