Little Big Diner - what a great spot. It’s right in Newton center so you can park in the municipal lot across the street. It’s best to get here early as it’s a small and unique little restaurant. We had a great seat at the bar which viewed directly into the kitchen so we could see the chefs cooking. The staff was extremely nice and even treated us to a house burger which was so good. My ramen was amazing from the noodles to the broth. The chicken thigh was particularly pleasant. Overall we had an excellent lunch here and will 100% be back again. Great spot.

So yummy!! I was spoiled with tons of options for ramen places when I lived in California and its one of the things I miss living back home. But this place delivered!! Amazing flavor, cute shop, and we lucked out with no wait by getting there a few minutes after opening. My boyfriend was also obsessed with his sake and the potatoes app. All amazing!! Can't wait to go back!!

First time here. Food was good but not great. The broth was kinda bland but the pork and chicken was excellent. Probably only reason I'll come back is because they open till 11. Other than that, I'll go to my go-to Pikaichi. Edit: went back again since like I said previously that they open late. Got the same chef's ultimate but asked for extra spicy this time. It really changed it for me. It made the broth flavorful with just the right amount of spiciness for me. Still a little pricy thought.
