Karai Rāmen (辛いラーメン)

Lovely rich broth and tasty toppings. Just the right level of heat/spice

Tonkotsu Rāmen (豚骨ラーメン)

As some one who has been to Japan 4 times now I must say that this restearaunt does that whole country justice. When I saw the takoyaki I knew I had to get it because nothing reminds me of japan more then octopus pancake balls! These were right on point and brought me back to the brightly lit streets of Osaka. I had to give their tonkatsu ramen a try and I must say I was impressed! Thick rich broth, perfectly cooked noodles and tender pork. Just short of another $900 plane ticket this is the some of the best ramen I could ever dream of!

Miso Beef Ramen (味噌牛肉ラーメン)

I came across Karai on Google after not being satisfied with other ramen restaurants nearby and let me tell you the hype is earned. Some of the best Miso Beef ramen I've ever had and I can't wait to try more.

Karai Rāmen (辛いラーメン)

I have had the Karai ramen twice, the Tonkotsu once and the Gyoza. Everything was SO delicious. The ramen is a huge heaping pile of noodles! It is enough for two meals. The broth is so good. I will be back again and again.

Spicy Beef Tantanmen (辛い牛肉ラーメン)

Karai Ramen Bistro is my favorite ramen house in all of Jacksonville. Having already tried a few of their dishes, I don't think you'll go wrong with anything on their menu. From my very first visit until today, every dish has been flavorful, intriguing, exquisite, entrancing, and undeniably enjoyable. Today, I slurped, splashed, scarfed and swallowed their Spicy Beef Tantanmen. It was excellent, I am still exploring the menu to identify my one true love. Adding a side of Katsu Fried Pork with any dish is a must.

Tonkotsu Rāmen (豚骨ラーメン)

Was looking for great ramen in the Jacksonville area (Came from Atlanta where they have a lot of great asian restaurants). Came across Karai ramen, and it was delicious! I don't eat spicy foods, but the tonkotsu ramen broth is well done. I like replacing the white straight osaka style noodles with the yellow curly noodles. Found my little piece of Japan in Jacksonville :)

Spicy Beef Tantanmen (辛い牛肉ラーメン)

Reminiscent of a Sunday dinner mixed with a spicy ramen, this dish was extremely tasty. I added on Katsu pork and this added a nice crunch to the dish. Everything was so good. I'll definitely make the drive again from St Augustine to eat here again.

Spicy Tonk Ramen (辛い豚骨ラーメン)

This was my first "real" ramen meal ever. It was delicious! I'm glad when you label something spicy, that you actually add some heat to it. That is rare to find in most restaurants. I came back a week later to have it again! I'm sure I'll be back soon

Tonkotsu Rāmen (豚骨ラーメン)

This is the best Tonkotsu ramen you can find in Jacksonville. We have been searching for a place to satisfy our craving since our visit to Japan and we found it in our hometown.

Miso Beef Ramen (味噌牛肉ラーメン)

I just moved to Jacksonville and was searching for Japanese food. I'm so glad I found Karai, probably the best Ramen and Takoyaki i've ever had. The miso broth is so rich, i've been to many Ramen places in New York and New Jersey and this place is better than all of them. My boyfriend grew up in Tokyo and said he hasn't tasted Takoyaki like theirs since he left Japan.

I've tried almost every ramen bowl here and at other restaurants in Jax and this place is by far the best, hands down! Authentic, taste is amazing and fresh! Thank you Karai for never disappointing!

Tonkotsu Rāmen (豚骨ラーメン)

The ramen is top notch along with the service. They do a poached egg versus soft boiled but it's still good even though it's not brined in the soy. Been here multiple times and would go back even more. Better pricing than DoMu for very similar dishes.

If you eat here, you will become ADDICTED. My boyfriend & I enjoy ramen here about every week. Every experience we have confirms our belief that Karai is the best ramen restaurant in Jacksonville. It will not disappoint.

Karai Rāmen (辛いラーメン)

The karai ramen is an outstanding dish. Amazing heat from the spice and other flavors fuse together into a rich broth with ground meat and hand crafted ramen noodles. It is the perfect ramen dish and the best anywhere in Jacksonville.

Karai Rāmen (辛いラーメン)

My first time at Karai was honestly one of the best experiences eating out I've ever had. Not only is the service very welcoming, but the food is outstanding!! Their ramen is so flavorful and distinct. I highly recommend this restaurant to any spice lovers!!! The noodles will have you hungrily coming back for more- its addicting. I hope to return and try more of the items on the menu very soon. Thank you!
