This may not be the absolute best ramen out there, but it's pretty good if you want something at a decent price with a good portion size.

I came for lunch and they have a special,  a bowl of ramen and a side for $12.

I got the tonkotsu ramen and I was quite satisfied with it. The service was fine at the time, it wasn't busy but they still were attentive if needed.

The spicy garlic tonkatsu ramen is so delicious!

Not overwhelmingly spicy and will definitely satisfy umami cravings. I've never waited too long to get a table but it's always pretty busy.

Definitely worth a try if you are in the area!

Very excited to have found a ramen place that serves delicious ramen!

Saiwaii is located in a hub of a bunch of really great restaurants, so expect it to be busy. My group was lucky to have gotten here early to avoid an exceedingly long wait, but around 6:30 PM a line started to form. Note they don't have a waiting area, so you may have to stand outside during your wait.

Menu is pretty large compared to most traditional ramen houses and I'm not complaining! They have a great variety of ramen and side dishes. Most of which are rooted from traditional Japanese cuisine and some are a bit more creative.

I tried the Spicy Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen and was super happy with my choice. It wasn't overly spicy and the broth was creamy and flavorful. However, I didn't get a good garlic taste from it. The pork cutlets were a little too thick for my liking, but they were still somewhat tender and packed flavor. Noodles were cooked to perfection!

Ramen here is delicious but could use some minor improvements. Will definitely be back!

The best ramen around

They've done away with sushi and made way for an endless appetizer menu! The Ramen is just as delicious as ever. I took an extremely picky eater here and ordered (same as me) spicy garlic tonkatsu. Still the best ramen around, especially after trying other places - they don't compare one bit.
New, more trendy wall decor, but still cozy and welcoming for those date nights or family affairs. Always the best service from friendly staff. What more do you want?
We love it Saiwaii, don't change that beautiful broth!
