New ramen joint! Dropped by with two of my friends a few weeks back, ordering the spicy tonkotsu and some chicken and rice dish that was NOT the chicken donburi I originally ordered. On the particulars, the noodles they use are of the thinner variety, but with a good consistency and texture, and the soup broth was pretty solid as well. On a more general note though, the food that Fujiyoshi serves up all tastes a little different than one would expect of a particular dish: the ramen's chashu pork tasted more Chinese than Japanese, and the soft boiled eggs and the chicken rice were surprisingly sweet (a little too much mirin, most likely). Is that necessarily a bad thing? Depends. If you're looking for traditional Japanese flavors, then yeah, it is. If you don't mind a different take on familiar dishes, then sure, give this place a shot. Am I planning to go back? Unlikely, because I do prefer my Japanese food to taste the way I expect, but who knows - I'll give these folks 2.5 stars for now. ***Accessibility Info*** Venue - A bit on the small and narrow side: you have booths running down the left of the restaurant, and a bar counter down the right, with a narrow walkway in between, that's just wide enough (and then some) to fit a wheelchair. I seem to recall a post at the end of the tables as well, so you aren't able to scoot in all the way either. Bathroom - Didn't check them out. GooglePlace - June 2016

the chef is very careless when prepare dishes and it is totally against Japanese spirit. the ramen tastes just like so-so. the background music is picked carelessly just to make some Japanese style. service is awful, leaving door open and let cold wind blow in. it also takes 30 minutes to get my second dish after the first one and just because they have done nothing but told you they are busy. won't come there again.

Tonkutsu ramen was perfect. Beers were cheap. There is nothing to add/improve about this place. Great eats. GooglePlace - October 2014
