I only get to Berkeley once a year or less often, but I always look forward to eating at Noodle Theory. My previous meals here all rated all five stars, and I'm frugal with ratings. This visit did not reach the same peak, and I'm...More

Nice, small restaurant. Found this with my husband on our cross country trip. The garlic noodles are excellent, although I found the soups to be a little bland. Still, prices are very reasonable and the facilities are clean. There's a small area outside where you...More

I'm very new to ramen, and I'd been to Itani on Telegraph b/c it has later hours, but was left super disappointed by my first experience. The broth there just wasn't cutting it. I decided to give real life ramen another try, and I was...More
