If ramen is what you're after, look no further than this new business. The newcomer to Japantown, called Oji, is located at 1740 Buchanan St., between Post and Sutter.

Oji offers a simple menu featuring three styles of ramen: tonkotsu (creamy pork bone broth), tori paitan (creamy chicken bone broth) and shio (clear dashi broth).

Bowls of the noodle soup come topped with chashu (pork belly) and a soft-boiled egg, and can be customized with extras like nori, sweet corn and fishcakes. Appetizers include edamame, fried rice, side salads and more.

With a 4.5-star rating out of 16 reviews on Yelp so far, Oji is getting solid feedback from clientele.

Robert L., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Oct. 13, wrote, "I got the tonkotsu ramen, which is basic but very well executed. The tonkotsu broth is creamy and flavorful, not greasy or heavy like other ramen places in the city. The noodles are perfect."

Yelper Jacqui C. noted, “If you're tired of the usual ramen places, you should definitely try this one!"

Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Oji is open from 5:30–9:30 p.m. on weekdays and 11:30 a.m.–9:30 p.m. on weekends.
