Since we first opened in 2001, Tajima has been satisfying San Diego’s growing hunger for authentic Japanese cuisine and ramen that is both unique and flavorful. Thanks to owner Sam Morikizono and his talented staff, Tajima has earned a reputation as one of San Diego’s top Japanese restaurants. Everything we serve honors the purity of Japanese taste and style, and our irresistible selection of ramens are made from scratch. You will enjoy dining at our tastefully decorated restaurants, which offer community tables and private seating areas, along with artful décor and lighting.
Tajima offers one of the widest selections of Japanese cuisine available at affordable prices, to satisfy the unique tastes and desires of everyone in your party. Our daily tapas-style (small plate) menu changes with the season, sourcing the freshest seasonal ingredients available. With five San Diego locations, plus one in Long Beach and a seventh restaurant in Tijuana, there is a uniquely designed Tajima within reach of your desire for Japanese cuisine at its finest!

Ramen-making is a unique science in terms of noodle size and texture. At Tajima, our ramen is firm, fresh and springy – the result of being made with several types of flour, and water with the perfect pH level. We also know that certain noodles complement different types of broths, which we pair perfectly for a memorable dining experience guaranteed to keep you coming back for more.
