An American slacker abandoned by her boyfriend in Tokyo finds her calling in an unlikely place: a local ramen house run by a tyrannical chef who doesn't speak of a word of English. Undaunted by the chef's raging crankiness, Abby convinces him to teach her the art of ramen preparation...and despite hilarious clashes of culture and personality, she learns how to put passion and spirit into her life as well as her cooking.
As good as a bowl of Ramen any day

I really liked this film, it was excellent. If a bowl of Ramen is supposed to infuse you with the spirit of the maker then so did this film, it was romantic and funny without being over the top in any department. I like films like this which haven't had a huge budget but are good entertainment and good acting. A nice story, well put together and nicely filmed. The sort of feel good Saturday night that I needed! I would recommend this film if you like Romcom, chick flicks and feel good movies.
