About Chashu


Chashu is a modern east asian dining experience inspired by our love of ramen and traditional, Japanese izakaya sake houses which features small tapas styled plates - and flavors that perfectly pairs with a wide selection of after-work beverages. Located in the heart of Worcester Massachusetts, Chashu delivers a fresh take on asian cuisine by fusing flavors across five eastern cultures, including our own.



Located in the Grid District, Chashu Ramen & Izakaya offers a new, compelling and exciting reason to experience downtown Worcester. Inspired by traditional izakaya pubs of Japan, Chashu neatly blends the elegance of asian art with the art deco designs of New York architecture to bring out a modern expression of asian taste that's both minimalistic yet captivating. The result is an incredible atmosphere that's equally elegant and alluring as the food and the drinks.

A visit to Chashu Ramen & Izakaya is like a micro trip to the art museum. Following the growing pride of Worcester's many beautiful murals, Chashu features artwork from two world renowned artists, Victor "Marka27" Quinonez and Aerosyn-Lex Meštrović. The pair created four opposing art pieces featuring asian design aesthetics and are balanced between masculine & feminine, modern & traditional, urban & fine.
