I've been to a lot of ramen places in Chicago, and this place is hands down my favorite (and many of my friends agree). It has a cool, hip and millennial ambiance which can throw some people off considering they do ramen. But it's so...More

Oiistar provided a unique and delicious dining experience! The ramen choices were broad and included options for people new to ramen. The buns were also top notch!
