Dear City Ramen Guests 


The COVID-19 crisis has effected small businesses all across Michigan over the past 72 hours.  We have implemented certain procedures to keep the possibility of contamination to a minimum.  We sincerely appreciate your understanding as we navigate these uncertain times.  At this point we have eliminated our self-serve touch screen ordering kiosks to help reduce the further spread of COVID-19.  We have also provided multiple disinfecting stations for customers and staff throughout the restaurant.  We hope these steps and more will help us all move forward past these difficult times, but if you prefer to dine at home you can order through GrubHub, or call us directly for take-away service. 

We thank you for your continued support!
