This was my first time trying spicy miso from any restaurant, my third time having ramen. It was wonderful. I was afraid it could be too spicy but it wasn't overwhelming. The pork roll was fantastic. I think I have a new favorite!
I got the Shoyu ramen to go, and it was amazing! There is so much flavor, and it is traditionally and perfectly made. Highly recommend!
The broth is to die for! I would rank this even if not better than Mitsuwa in Arlington Heights!
These fries were AMAZING. That sauce on top is so good, and my fries were crunchy and yummy even after a drive home. Knowing how good these are now it'll be hard to resist them in the future.
Soo tasty and like real crab meat all throughout
Delicious. So much flavor!
As always I am incredibly impressed with the ramen. I have been here three times in the past year getting the Tonkotsu twice and the Shoyu once. I cannot recommend these items enough as they bring such joy to my stomach. Getting the Tonkostu to-go today and enjoying it at home was exactly what I needed to make my day better.
Love that there's a vegetarian option for these. Not my fave ever, but really really good and worth ordering again.
So so yum! I had it for dinner 2 nights ago and am still thinking about it and when I'll get to eat it again (later this week is the plan!). So excited to have found a local ramen place that we enjoy as much as our faves in LA.
My daughter and I have been enjoying Umai since they opened last fall. Our favorite ramen includes the shoyu and spicy miso, but all of the ones we have tried are wonderful! The broth is full and unctuous in the best way possible and the housemade noodles have the perfect bite. We are so pleased to have an amazing ramen place right down the street from us!
The ramen here is fantastic! The service is excellent! The ambience has a city feel in the suburb, so it's a win win all the way around! I highly recommend this place!
Everything was delicious. The broth was placed in a separate to-go container, which helped everything keep its texture for the drive home. My wife and I are looking forward to coming back.
Wonderful! We also had the chicken appetizer, the French fries and chicken rice bowl. All very tasty.
My new favorite thing 😍
Amazing miso ramen! Great flavor. Ordered take out and it was ready quick, and stayed nice and hot til we got home. Got the crab Rangoon too and they were awesome!
The Steak Teriyaki was Great, can't wait to have it again.
Super flavorful and delicious! I really enjoyed the earthiness of the broth and the chashu was well cooked:)
Simply amazing authentic food with very generous proportions for the price. The staff are friendly & welcoming. It's very clean & well decorated. It's honestly a lovely restaurant.
The first time trying ramen and it was delicious
I love the shrimp!!! The flavor is amazing!!! and the sauce that comes with it complements the flavor, I come from Joliet just to get my shrimp and ramen 😋simple delicious I recommend this jewel of restaurant all flavors are very clean and tasty.
After living in Chicago for the last 12 years, we've struggled to find good places for spicy miso ramen. So far, this is the best we've found - consistently good ramen. It's good enough that it's one of a couple restaurants we've added to our routine, and we're willing to drive 40-45 min round trip since we can't get it delivered.
When I was looking to get ramen this was exactly what I was hoping for. The broth was absolutely delicious. I was full by the end, but I could have kept drinking that broth for a while. I would recommend it.
This food was absolutely Delish❤️ I love some good authentic ramen!
I made the mistake of putting in my order and picking it up hours later, but this didn't change a thing. The Spicy Miso was still great, and I plan on having it again.
Slightly salty, but delicious and will definitely order again.
Definitely worth ordering again. Maybe a LITTLE heavy on the oil (or whatever fat is used) for me, but yum.
This tempura shrimp is second to none. Perfectly seasoned and battered. It's honestly ruined all other tempura shrimp for me. Would definitely recommend.
Very delicious. I was worried the chicken would be soggy, but it wasn't at all. Definitely would reccomend and would eat here again.
The broth was really good and the noodles were perfect. All the other ingredients fit right in.
The freshest ingredients and so tasty! The best ramen I've had! Love this is local!
My family found this gem right before Covid lockdown and we were so happy! We love the Ramen soups and it was so comforting to be able to order and bring home during tough times. Great place!
I have been going to this fabulous restaurant since it opened in Naperville. I was SO HAPPY to find a REAL RAMEN place so close. We generally dine in the restaurant, but this time I did take out and surprised a homebound friend with a really great meal. We had the Gyoza, Brussels, Tonkotus, Tofu, Miso and the cheesecake. It was all FABULOUS!! My friend and her son had never tried Umai Aji-ya OR Ramen --- they loved it! I was impressed by the take-out and how it was so well packaged, hot, fresh and ready to go! THANKS! I was not surprised at all. Their food is awesome, every time! I have had most of the items on the menu and enjoyed them all. Was a bit sad to see that the salt and pepper shrimp was not on menu --- but the Gyoza was a bit hit! So, now you have 2 more peeps who love your food and they are going to be telling and bringing their friends to dine is AND take-out. Perfect!!
The broth was super flavorful and it was definitely a good serving size. Definitely is a must try again ramen!
This has become my single favorite take-out dish. Its exactly what your'e looking for in Japanese cuisine. Filling but not too heavy. Genuinely flavorful. A great mix of veggies, rice and protein. The vegetables especially arr always cooked perfectly. Always great service from staff when you pick it up and leftovers heat up great the next day. Favorite dish from a fantastic restaurant!
Delicious flavor profiles. Very clean, fresh, and thoughtful food.
The fries and the ramen was absolutely delicious my sister got the Brussels and stared them with the group and now i know my next item to try next ordering was easy
This was delicious! Tasty veggies and awesome tuna.
