We are Ramen Izakaya Akira from Japan. Our main goal is to provide you with traditional Japanese Ramen with a slight Italian twist. Izakaya is a pub-like style eatery that is very common in Japan.


Executive Chef and Owner

Akira Imamura

With experience in the restaurant business for 20 years, Chef Akira Imamura from Japan wanted to use his skill and expertise to take on a challenge to start a new business in the US. His story in the US started in Los Angeles, California working as a chef for 3 years before finding an opportunity in Dallas, Texas. His new theme was Ramen, but with a twist inspired by his experience in Italian fine dining.

Goal and Policy

We are a small restaurant with only 27 seatings. We are blessed to be visited by many customers every day from first-time customers, to occasional customers, and regular customers.

Unfortunately, we are often visited by some that do not meet our expectations. Please advise our rules as follows.

  1. Please keep your party to no more than 4 people. We will not accept parties greater than 4 people.

  2. Please order a reasonable amount of food as long as you are seated. (We have had people in the past where 4 people shared 1 bowl of ramen. We provide food and service, not space).

  3. We do not accept reservations or questions on social media.

  4. In order to maintain the best atmosphere for our customers, please refrain from using your speakerphone in the restaurant. (If there is an emergency, please use low volume or speak outside).

  5. We do not accept food orders outside of restaurant hours.

  6. If your child is running around or crying in the restaurant, it is in best interest for everyone for you to take care of your child/children. (Running around or entering the kitchen is dangerous. We understand that children may cry. It is also best for them if you listened to their cries.

  7. There is a sign at the front of the restaurant that states, “Please wait to be seated.” There are situations where customers are waiting in their cars, or where we need time to set up the tables. Please wait at the front of the sign until someone comes to help you. (We have had customers who did not follow our directions and seated themselves. Unfortunately, we may have to ask you to leave in those situations)
