It is sooo good, the pork melts in your mouth every bite you take. The broth is so good and it completes everything in the ramen so well. Just thinking about it right now is making my mouth water and that's why I'm gonna go get some ramen RIGHT now.
This is the best Ramen in Jacksonville. I make it point to go or at least get something every Saturday.
This dish is the first dish I tried when I came here and I have been a frequent customer since! It's such a warm and filling dish and I tend to crave it most when I need a warm spiced hug.
The ramen was absolutely delicious. I've had ramen all over and this is one of the best places I've tried. The broth was seasoned perfect, it's my favorite place.
Hands down THE Best Ramen in Jacksonville!!! All of the flavors are so delicious together!! I love Chef Levi's ingenious ideas!!!
This Place is absolutely Legit! Chef Levi and his Staff are top notch! Being from Los Angeles it was great to find a Real Ramen Spot! No Fluff just Great Food and Service! Thank You Karai Ramen for being the Best Ramen in Jacksonville 😁👍 Michael C. Neptune Beach
The best in Jax! The whole menu is awesome and the owner is a cool guy! You will not be disappointed!
Put of all the ramen places in jacksonville, this is the best one you will ever go to! You can tell they put a lot of love into the food they make. Hands down the best ramen i have ever had. 10/10 hands down.
Absolutely delicious Ramen! Possibly the best in the entire Jax/Northeast area.
Delicious! Very flavorful. Cooked to perfection. Only change I would make would be to be able to have options of which meat to put in it...but that is not a negative just wishful thinking. My 5 year-old ate all the edamame and his katsu. That is saying something because he is a picky eater. We will definitely be back.
First time trying actual ramen and oh my goodness it was amazing. I'll be in multiple times this week. The broth was soooo flavorful and the knife cuts were perfect.
This warm, inviting and flavorful ramen is perfect. It's perfect for a rainy day, when you feel sick, when it's a random Tuesday. It feels as comforting as a warm hug.
So good!! The pork was so tender and the broth was delicious.
Walked in to this place and immediately thought about how cozy it was! The ramen was so good.. from the delicious broth to the tender pork belly I am hooked! Even the Takoyaki was fantastic. Drove up from St. Johns County.. will be back for more!
Had the best ramen I've ever had. Saw this restaurant was named #1 ramen so had to confirm. Great dinner. Well worth the wait time. Hopefully soon they will expand and also offer more drink selections.
The Shoyu ramen was extremely delicious and flavorful! That broth! And the place was so cozy! Highly recommend and we will be back!
Loved the ramen! So creamy and delicious. It was cold out so the broth really warmed me up. The seating inside the restaurant is cozy and inviting. I live in Orange Park but this is worth the drive every time!
Good af! Fresh and the pork belly was super tender! Plan on going multiple times to try chef specials and the udon at some point
Delicious! I cant rave about this place enough. Ive told everyone about this place. Service was good food was amazing. Bowls looked exactly like the photos. Will definitely be back.
Searched for the best ramen in Jax and found it at this unassuming location - completely worth your time and money!
This is by far the best pork ramen I've ever had! I normally gravitate towards spicy dishes (and the karai ramen is great also), but this one really stole the show! It is tasty, light, and delicious! Portion is perfect.
This ramen is amazing and I find myself tasting the pork chashu just thinking about it. I've tried to see if I can find a shoyu that compares and none of them make such a tender and delicious pork. My go to when I come.
I lived in Okinawa for a few years and Karao Ramen Bistro has made my soul happy once again because of their food! I miss good Ramen and this restaurant will leave you more than satisfied!
BEST Tonkotsu I've ever had. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
This is the most delicious ramen I have ever had in my life! Definitely cannot wait to go back!
I ordered the Tonkotsu Ramen with Shrimp Tempura and Shishito Peppers on my 1st visit. It was a symphony of balanced flavors. I'm so in love with this place, I wish I lived closer. On my 2nd visit I ordered the daily special & chicken dumpling appetizer, again amazing!! My husband loved the Karai Ramen so much, that's the only thing he will order now!
it was incredible!! amazing place, dish, and customer service
Very impressed! It was sweet but savory. It was very filling as well. The soy sauce-based broth was delicious. I also tried the Takoyaki and green tea ice cream, both were very good! I will definitely be back!
This was so delicious we returned 2 days later to eat some more!!!!
Best Ramen I've had. Amazing rich flavor with the perfect amount of toppings. The pork is incredible. Highly recommend!
I came here for the first time and I absolutely loved it! I thought the broth was amazing. I cannot wait to come back. Melanie was fantastic as well.
It's been three days and I can't stop thinking about this ramen! Me and my best friend walked into Karai around 8pm on a Tuesday night! I was immediately attracted to everyone's dishes. Everything looked amazing so I was excited. We were seated quickly and we each got dishes. I got the shoyu ramen, my best friend got the Karai ramen. The noodles were cooked perfectly and I'm glad it was super hot. We also tried the edamame and sake. We got the large sake and couldn't even finish it. I've never been so impressed with a restaurant recently and you guys blew my mind away. I originally was writing a review on yelp but came on the website to see what my friends dish was called! I saw that I could win some cash so I decided to write a review on here as well. I just want to say bravo! You guys have perfected ramen. I've tried various ramen restaurants in Jacksonville but I'll definitely be back here and refer all of my friends! Thank you!
Awesome spicy ramen! Love to add pork belly!
My husband, myself & our 7 year old had lunch at Karai recently & it was amazing!! Little man had the ramen ninja and literally ate every bite!! My husband and I both had the Karai Ramen, which was hands down one of the best I've ever had! Defiantly one of the top ramen restaurants in Jacksonville- if not the best!
Some of the best Asian Cuisine I've ever had! Delicious, large portions, and reasonably priced. Great service as well. High recommendation!
So amazingly good. This dish is spicy but it's the best ramen dish I've ever had.
Best ramen in Jacksonville, especially the tonkotsu ramen! The broth is really porky, creamy, thick, and just sticks to your pallet. The noodles are thin and able to absorb the thick broth. The pork chashu is super tender and just melts in your mouth. The staff is super nice and welcoming. I love this place so much!
I've lived in New York and this is fantastic ramen! Good job, Karai!
This is the best Ramen in Jax! From a young age I've always been heavily influenced around a lot of asian culture. (My favorite in particular always was the food.) Ramen is one of my favorite dishes, but there's not a lot of restaurants in Jacksonville that serve it, so when I learned about this place it was a dream come true. I brought my husband to this place so he could try authentic ramen for the first time. The Shoyu I thought would be a great beginner ramen to try and just like I thought he loved it! He's leaving for boot camp with the Navy in a week and this restaurant is on his list of places to eat one last time before he leaves. I hope he savors every bite.
