The first ramen I tasted was delish, tonkotsu black garlic ramen! Portion size was good, although a bit pricey. This place is in Chinatown and very busy during weekday lunch hours. I have gone back several times and food is consistent, and service always great.

Sobo is simply delicious! I have a weakness for their Spicy Black Tonkotsu but never hesitate to switch it up as all of their food has been amazing. I recently when to Japan and Sobo does their ramen right. I have great chats with the staff and despite how busy they are, I never have to wait to long to get a seat. I highly recommend Sobo and have convinced many of my friends to cross the bridge from San Francisco to get a taste of the best!

Always awesome
Since moving to the Bay from LA, I had been desperate to find a quality ramen joint, and Sobo is it. They have a great menu with tons of yummy add-ons (quail egg and kale!!), amazing vegan selections (I'm not even vegan and I love their coconut broth ramen!), and friendly service. Due to their general amazingness, sometimes it can be a bit of a wait, but it's so, so worth it!

Best Ramen in the area
While ramen restaurants are popping up all over the place, Sobo Ramen continues to be my absolute favorite. Excellent food for the vegans and omnivores alike, beautiful and simple interior, friendly and attentive staff, and reasonable prices. So glad to have discovered the place!

Sobo is THE best place to eat in Downtown Oakland Chinatown. Super friendly staff, a great place for groups or a date, lots of diverse clientele including ALL THE HOT QUEERS, and delicious food. They're always busy these days because they're really that good, but once you sit down, they're pretty fast! If you have to wait for a table, it's worth it :)
