Very delicious. I was worried the chicken would be soggy, but it wasn't at all. Definitely would reccomend and would eat here again.

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!!

Chicken Teriyaki

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!

We have been enjoying ramen at Umai Aji-Ya since it opened last fall. I have had almost every ramen, and each one has been amazing. The broth has wonderful depth of flavor! I have been telling all my friends about how great the food is here and I'm excited that the weather is cooling down. Next time I go, I am going to try one of the rice bowls. They look great!

Ramen Bowl

Ordered to go and didnt take long at all...Very delicious Umai Chicken Ramen. Soup base was tasty and rich in flavor. And very filling and satifying ramen. Will defintely try more food from there.

This is the best ramen I've had in Naperville. It's nice that I don't have to drive all the way to the city to get a good tasting broth. The chicken Karaage option instead of the chashu pork is a game changer. I would order just the chicken and eat that as well as the ramen. Have visited multiple times and I hope they last through COVID because I really like this place!

Chicken Teriyaki

We had umami fries, teriyaki rice bowl and chicken ramen bowl. Everything was amazing. I have never had fries like this before and food was most authentic Japanese food in the area. I will give it 5/5!!

Crispy Brussels

These were perfect! Crispy and tender with great flavor. We--even my teen--were fighting over the last ones!

Spicy Miso

Absolutely a must try dish! The pork belly was perfectly seasoned and cooked and the broth was just the right amount of spicy. Do yourself a favor and try this dish.

Full flavored, healthy and delicious. Paired with a sweet treat of chicken karaage I have literally ordered this days in a row!!! As a foodie thats travelled the world and tasted delights from Australia to the Dominican Republic to Thailand I found it almost impossible to find food that made you happy (ie with flavor and taste bud delight!) most of the restaurants I honestly find are bland..... BUT Umai Aji-Ya did not disappoint!!!! Became a VIP because I have ordered and plan to become a regular so I can enjoy the whole menu...... but until then another Tonkotsu please!

The broth is delicious and so flavorful. The pork melts in your mouth. We drive 45 minutes from our house to get ramen. It's the best we have found.

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.

Chicken Karaage

I have been looking for chicken karaage for a long time now, and this is the first place that has it. And I must say, IT IS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Crispy and well seasoned. I would recommend this with whatever else you decide to order.

Spicy Miso

Been trying to find any good Ramen places since we've moved to North Aurora. We decided to try here and we were blown away!! This spicy miso is outstanding. I've been craving it nearly every day since! It's a little bit of a creamier broth which I loved and it's spicy ness is fantastic! Everything was so good and so fresh! Repeat customer from now on

It was my first time visiting and I have to say this is now my favorite ramen place. I loved all the assortment of teas and the fact that you can substitute pork for chicken. Service was excellent and while I feel the menu is a little bit limited, I will absolutely be back!

The ramen was delicious. Nice to have a ramen olace near by!

Our first time here. It's difficult to find vegetarian ramen in the suburbs. We were all super pleased with each element: broth, noodles, and extras. I asked them to keep the broth separate for the ride home---it worked perfectly and we really appreciated the extra mile!

Spicy Miso

It was my first time trying this place and I was not disappointed. The ramen, condiments and broth were separated because it was takeout. However it still was very delicious once I put it all together. This was hands down one of the best ramen spots I've gone to. I'm excited to try it in the restaurant once the pandemic is over. I'll definitely be ordering from here again.

The Umai Chicken Broth Ramen Bowl was delicious. Now they don't give you enough chicken at all, I believe I had 3 chicken breast cubes in mine. For $13 you would think they would give you more protein than that. Other than that the food was delicious.

Orange Chicken

The experience here has always been great. Amazing meal, although a little pricey, worth it! Had the Umai fries as well and those were well prepared to perfection.
