This was going to go on YELP. Tamashii Ramen House is one of NoHo's newest restaurants along the Magnolia strip. We decided to try it out because we were cold, tired, rather hungry, and wanted to walk to a place in our neighborhood.
First off, it scores an A+ for great atmosphere. All the staff is extremely hospitable and enjoy answering any question you may have about the cuisine, which maybe a lot if you haven't eaten real ramen before. We definitely have friendly folks in the NoHo Arts District! Whether you sit inside or on the lovely patio, you will get a wonderful "Zen" vibe. It’s definitely not the run-of-the-mill chain restaurant, and it’s obvious that the owners take pride in providing a wonderful dining experience.
Tamashii Ramen House gets an A+ for its food. Their dishes are made with fine, natural ingredients - no frozen, preservative-filled food sold there. I used my coupon from nohoartsdistrict.com and had a free edamame appetizer, delicious! I ordered the chicken ramen, it was cold and I wanted a warm and filling dish, it was delicious. Another thing I noticed was they offer very generous portions. So go hungry! What’s great about my dish and all their ramen dishes, besides the flavor, is that the ramen is served in a large bowl that cools from the top down, allowing the soup at the bottom of the bowl to stay warm, very clever, there’s nothing worse than cold soup! I followed dinner with a steamy, hot cup of ginger and honey tea made with fresh chopped ginger. Definitely get the tea. It was sweet and yummy enough for me to consider it my dessert.
Tamshii also has a great wine selection, on my next trip I’m definitely going to sample some, and maybe their Tokyo Curry Bowl. I had a taste of my friend's Tokyo Currry Bowl, which contained just the right amount of spiciness to bounce off your palate.

Tamashii Ramen House definitely deserves another trip. It’s perfect for lunch too and is great before or after a theatre show. (We’ve got lots of theatre in NoHo!)
Glad this family owned restaurant is in the NoHo neighborhood!
