Koraku Restaurant – Sherman Oaks, CA

I’ve been working in Sherman Oaks lately so I thought I’d give Koraku Sherman Oaks a try. Having already been to the Koraku in Little Tokyo, I thought I’d order some of the other not quite traditional ramen’s on the menu. In surprising contrast to the Little Tokyo restaurant, this Koraku was empty. My co-worker and I were the only ones in the restaurant. Hmm…I wonder why?

Koraku-ramen: If you name a ramen after your restaurant’s name it better be good! And indeed this ramen was good but I still think it could’ve been better. Slightly on the fishy side, if you aren’t a seafood lover then you should definitely pass. But I did enjoy it. Since there are too many toppings to name, I won’t even try. The soup was a little oily but that’s nothing new. The noodles were typical Koraku. I probably will never order this again, but not because I didn’t like it. More so because it’s just not my style.


Gekikara Miso Yasai-ramen: I didn’t try this so I really can’t review it. I’ll just provide the picture and let you imagine what it would taste like. According to the actual eater, this ramen was really good. Let me know if you agree.

  1. Been eating at Sherman Oaks location once a week for 6 months and enjoyed every bowl!
    But tonight I watched our chef wiping his runny nose contiuously while preparing our dinner. I complaimed to our server and we cancelled our dinner and walked out!
    Totally gross!
    Not sure if I’ll ever go back!

  2. Hi Angel. I’ve heard good things about the koraku in Primm. Maybe it’s because people find comfort in their ramen after losing all their money in Vegas. 🙂 I’ll have to go check it out sometime.

  3. Gekikara Miso Yasai Ramen is my absolute favourite! I always get it at Koraku in Little Tokyo when I eat there, or at the location in Primm, Nevada (totally random place to have a Koraku) where they call it “Volcano Ramen” instead.
