Get your chopsticks ready for our roundup of the best restaurants serving ramen in Houston. 

Soma Sushi
Japanese · Washington Corridor · $$
Food 4.5 · Decor 4.3 · Service 4.1

With sushi so "fresh" it’s "literally off the hook" , "fabulous, exotic sashimi" and some of "the best ramen in town" , it’s easy to see why fans flock to this Washington Corridor Japanese (sibling to Kata Robata); the hip, contemporary interior features high ceilings and clean lines, while outdoors the patio is a "great place to chill."
Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ
Japanese · Midtown · $$

Bringing a DIY spirit to the dining table, this yakiniku chain outpost in Midtown offers barbecue with a Japanese twist. Accented with classic dark-wood decor, the group-friendly setting features spacious tables topped with their own grills, ready-made for cooking marinated cuts of meat that complement an assortment of specialty sauces and imported beers.
KA Sushi
Japanese · Heights · $$

The first sushi bar in the northern Heights serves a modern Japanese menu of creative rolls, hamachi pops, small plates and bowls of ramen, along with specialty cocktails and sakes. The tucked-away, softly lit space is dramatically decked in charcoal walls and moody Japanese murals, with intimate table seating.
