Buya Ramen is centered around the concept of Izakaya dining, an atmosphere designed to encourage you to socialize with friends and discover new people while you sip on imported Japanese whiskey, a fine Nigori sake, or a rich Japanese beer. Or perhaps you'd like to try one of their craft cocktails like a Toki-O Highball or the ultra original Shroom of Doom.

Perhaps your party would just like to sample a few different dishes; that's perfectly alright, Buya Ramen has several tapas to make your taste buds melt. Try the always comforting pork gyoza and refresh your senses with a light seaweed salad, then finish your dining experience with the Ahi Poke chilled ramen salad for that perfect little spice at the end.
