Ramen Tatsu-ya’s latest restaurant in East Austin is now open. Along with the same beloved bowls of noodle soup, the 1600 East 6th Street location boasts of late night hours on the weekend and cocktails.
Dubbed Ramen Tatsu-ya Comal, the new restaurant took over what had been the Qui/Kuneho space. The front door for the restaurant has been moved to East 6th Street, instead of the previous entrance in the parking lot off Comal Street. McCray & Co worked on the redesign of the restaurant, opening up the space from its previous rendition.

This is Ramen Tatsu-ya’s fourth Texas location and its third Austin one. It also runs Japanese Texas izakaya Kemuri and is working on a tiki bar on South Lamar. The team is also opening a restaurant on Burnet Road called Dip Dip Dip Tatsu-ya, and Eater guesses it might be a shabu shabu spot.
The East 6th Ramen Tatsu-ya is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and then from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday
