Our Story

Tatsu is the brainchild of .ange. and Tommy Nadeau who fell in love with Tokyo and its lively ramen scene. Tatsu's iconic taste started with recipes that .ange. created in her home kitchen and was perfected by ramen experts, who flew in from Japan, through the customization of personal tastes and preferences. Meat lover, vegan, and gluten-free foodies can now happily enjoy a hearty bowl of ramen side by side. The umami broths are made every day in-house from scratch and take at least 28 hours to complete - keeping the good ol' tradition of food made with integrity and love.

"Tatsu" means dragon and opened its doors in 2012, the year of the dragon.

Our Menu

Our secret (or not-so-secret) recipe: Broth made fresh daily right in front of you for at least 28 hours. Pork chashu simmered to perfection. Seasoned soft-boiled egg, firm on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside. Marry that with noodles cooked perfectly al dente and you have a ramen bowl so good you have to come back for seconds!

Want it spicy? Love garlic? With chicken instead of pork? You are in luck, all our bowls of ramen can be customized via an easy-to-use iPad ordering system. Vegetarian/Vegan? We have a ramen for you. Oh, and corn, fresh garlic and seaweed toppings are always free!
