The comments ranged from comprehensive to, well, you'll see. First came this from Jan:

Sakura House is one of my favorite lunch treats. Service can be slow, but you know that your food is getting proper attention in the kitchen. The food is homestyle and excellently prepared. The family who run the restaurant are kind and accommodating. In warm weather, I like hiyashi chuka, a cold ramen "salad." In addition to ramen, the menu includes donburi (I especially like the shrimp omelet on rice) and "set meals," which include pre-determined courses. Sakura House provides a nice bit of relaxation in the middle of the work day.

I recently returned to Domo after a long absence due to a bad experience, and was happy to find that the food has returned to its former good quality. I had cold ramen with soy milk dipping sauce and salmon. A new experience for me, and delicious. Next, I have to master eating it without wearing it.

Safeway. It's called Top Ramen.
