Best Tsukemen ever!!! This is one of my favorite ramen places. Although, smells kind of bad in there sometimes. I think they need to change their cleaning rag.

Mentatsu is small, but it has great service and amazing food. They are known for their ramen, from which they have a wide variety to choose from. The price is good and they are open fairly late as well!

The food here is how should i say...delicious. Its a ramen restaurant, but don't over look the rice dishes, the chicken katsu curry is the best! if you are not in the mood for that try the negi miso ramen

The Tenshin Chahan is a large shrimp and egg omelette over a bed of fried rice. It is my ultimate favorite dish to order at Mentatsu!! You can add delicious gravy for only $0.50 more and it makes all the difference! A definite must-have

I feel like this place has a huge amount of ramen style to choose from. Some of them are fusion some are traditional but its all came in big portion. Personally I like more of traditional ramen but I tired this butter ramen. Its a clear soup with shashu pork as usual but they also put butter in it. I was like huh?? butter? but well I ordered it and its actually went together pretty well with ramen and clear soup. The other time I order mabo-ramen which is a ramen in thick soup topped with diced tofu and ground pork. I feel like the taste was nice but average . However i gave its idea a star and it was really big ...too big for me to finish to be exact. ^_^

I could careless about customer service if the food was good enough, but here both were terrible. The pork used in the ramen, was pretty much the cheapest, dryest, toughest cut they could get their hands on. The soup was also bland enough that I had to add soya sause to it and I never add soya sauce to anything. I was so hoping that this was going to be a nice substitute for the Mitsuwa food court ramen place. So unless you have a Ramen addiction and Mitsuwa food court is closed, avoid this place.

Pros: open for dinner

Cons: food, service, price

I just went to Mentatsu yesterday after reading a positive review online, and it turned out to be a really bad experience. I ordered the chashumen, and my husband had the miso ramen. Neither were decent. The soup was very bland. The noodles were too soft. The bean sprouts were definitely not fresh. The so-called chashu seemed like overboiled slices of lean pork. It was so bad that we could not finish our bowls. Moreover, they forgot about our gyoza order, so we didn't get to try that. Having just gotten back from Japan last week, the experience was especially disappointing. If you're craving ramen in the O.C., I highly recommend Kohryu and Shin-sen-gumi--both are 10x better than Mentatsu (in both food and service).

Pros: Prompt seating

Cons: Bland soup base, soft noodles.
