Extra Noodles. You Can order Thin or Thick extra noodles if you’re still hungry!
Value: Pretty good. Good portion of noodle and soup. However if you want more toppings it’s an extra charge.
Quality: Tasty, and filling. There are better ramen experiences out there however, Jinya is decent. Not mind-blowing, but good. Soup broth could have been hotter.
