Visiting the Kahala Mall to hit the Apple Store and my Daughter says that she wants to go to the new Japanese restaurant she saw at the end of the mall near the movie theaters.  We headed towards the theaters and found Goma Tei Ramen in the former location of Hallmark Cards.  Since the day was cloudy and rainy it seemed nice to grab a warm bowl of Ramen.  We were seated quickly by a hostess/waitress.  She greeted us and gave us menus.  We were given ice water and I asked for some hot tea.  The waitress told me that they did not have any hot water for tea.  This seemed odd but we went ahead and looked over the menu.  Tan Tan Ramen, Shoyu Ramen and Sunho Ramen were among some of the dishes on the menu.  I asked the waitress what the best Ramen was and she said that the Tan Tan Ramen #1 was the most popular.  I ordered the Tan Tan Ramen with Char Siu and Vegetables ($13.25).  The bowl of Ramen was large and I had never seen Char Siu so big.  Three huge thick slices in the Ramen with lots of vegetables and noodles.  I hated it.  Did not like the oily sesame oil pasty taste.  Actually ate very little of my Ramen as you will see in the photo below.  The Gyoza ($7.97) was just ok.  My Wife and Daughter love Gyoza and they only ate one each which is rare.  Some of the Gyoza fell apart with the filling coming out.  The Goma Wings ($8.74) were really crunchy and hot.  Not spicy hot but hot from the fryer.  The Wings were meaty and tasty but the Tonkatsu sauce served with them was not that good.  The Shoyu Vegetable Ramen with Shoyu Egg ($10.75) was just alright and nothing special my Wife said.  She added that she would not go back for it again.  My Daughter ate the most and enjoyed her Shoyu Ramen ($9.56) without any complaints.  Service was very good with the entire staff pitching in and working the tables.  Our waitress was kind and always checking on the table.
