I am very happy to announce Ani Ramen's fourth location will be in Maplewood Village at 149 Maplewood Ave. This acclaimed NJ ramen house will feature its signature Japanese Ramen bowls with custom signature noodles by Sun Noodle and other acclaimed dishes such as bao buns, homemade crispy gyoza and other Japanese Izakaya small plates.

We are excited about this addition to our community. Thanks to all who helped us recruit them to Maplewood.

The opening is expected in early 2019 after building renovations.

Ani Ramen will be opening in the former location of Sutagao, which closed earlier this year.
