Based on my one visit, I can’t say I’m a fan of this place. The Kuroi tonkotsu ($8.95) was an odd mix of tonkotsu ramen and black garlic with flavors fighting each other for your attention. The thin noodles were dense and somewhat gummy. It’s a place to try for the shear novelty factor of the unique types of ramen served, but I think I prefer a more traditional type of ramen. They’re known as a fusion ramen shop with half a dozen spots in Japan and this location in Las Vegas. Created by Hironori Kawai, they’ve won awards and garnered much praise for their ramen. With that type of hype it’s worth another shot to try additional items.

If you sit at the counter prepare to bang your knees into the ledge beneath the counter. If you try to scoot in — and those seat are heavy and hard to move — there’s a high chance of you hitting your knees more than once.
