About Us

Fresno’s native The Lin Brothers wanted to develop a concept based on three words, comforting, casual, and Oishi (delicious). In Honor of our family, we name the restaurant Hayashi, which translates to Lin in Japanese. We believe True ramen is nothing close to an instant cup of noodles. Ramen originated in China in 1859 and made its way over to Japan. Since then, there have been hundreds of different variations and styles of ramen. A real hearty and satisfying bowl of ramen takes time and effort to master, but only take minute to devour. Our guest can create ramen their way. From the broth to the noodles and toppings, our guest can customize their bowl of ramen exactly how they want it.

We are a casual Japanese eatery with a comfortable and inviting atmosphere great for a quick lunch or the perfect ramen date! Where Oishi and soul-warming ramen is paired with great hospitality. Our goal is to create a bowl of ramen that is memorable and special to you. We know our unique techniques and attention to detail will make us stand out among the rest. Your smile and an empty bowl is what’s most important to us.
