Ramen restaurant on Vernon Blvd opens


May 7, 2015 By Christian Murray

The ramen restaurant that has been under construction at 47-36 Vernon Boulevard in recent months opened yesterday.

The restaurant, called Tamashii Ramen, is owned by Jhon Cho, who has operated a restaurant by the same name at 29-05 Broadway in Astoria for the past two years.

The Long Island City version will offer the same menu as the Astoria location. (click for menu)

The Vernon Blvd restaurant has room for about 25 diners. While small, it does deliver. (718-472-2142)

Cho said he will be running the Vernon Blvd location and that he has an employee who will manage the Astoria restaurant.

Cho said that the most popular dishes at his restaurants are Champon (spicy seafood noodle soup, $12.95), Veggie Champon ($12.95) and Tamashii ramen (ramen flavored with pork and seafood, $10.95).

He said that the basic ingredients are Japanese, although they are mixed with Korean spices.

Cho, a Korean national, has been in the US for 16 years and has worked or owned restaurants since. His father is Japanese while his mother is Korean. His mother operated a restaurant in Korea for more than 30 years, he said.

Cho said that he decided to open a Vernon Blvd restaurant since there was a lot of demand from Long Island City residents for his food.

He said many Long Island City residents used to call his Astoria location hoping to place an order. However, he said, it was too far away for his staff to make deliveries.

I called for delivery today and was told that they no longer deliver due to many complaints from customers regarding that their food took too long to arrive! Gee thanks LIC folks you sure know how to ruin it for others!


I’ve had their noodles a couple of times, very tasty and fresh! I called today for delivery and unfortunately was told that they don’t deliver anymore due to many complaints from customers that their food took too long! The lady on the phone had said that their kitchen doesn’t have the capacity to handle a large volume of orders! Thank you complaining idiots!


I love this place! I was so looking forward
To ordering from some delivery from them tonight So when I called the lady on the phone said that due to a high volume of complaints from customers they will no longer deliver! She mentioned that their kitchen cannot handle the capacity of delivery orders.i hope that they will deliver again some time in the future as they have good quality food! Folks should realize and be considerate regarding the circumstances! Thank you for complaining and ruining it for everyone else!


unfortunately they put up a massive ventilation duct along the outside of the building and now all of us within a block of the place hear nothing but it’s steady roar. I can’t imagine anything tastes good enough to justify that

Tough luck, Mike

You’re not allowed to complain. You must suck it up for the pleasure of the narcissists who call LIC home. As long as they have their gem in a sea of mediocrity, you mean nothing.

Tough luck, Mike

Get over yourself, your lordship. They are just bowls of noodles. Nothing more.


Great news, and welcome to the neighborhood. Mu Ramen is great, but we need something a little more “affordable”, and this seems to fit the bill!


We go to the one in Astoria all the time and we love it. This can spell trouble for me.


Please deliver to the Queensboro plaza area! I used to order from you when I lived two blocks away and would love to be able to order again! Also – hardly anyone will deliver to my area and there’s huge demand, so many buildings with limited options.
