We had dinner on Saturday. We ordered ramen, tuna sashimi, pickles and noodle salad. Each time we were there, we order the same. This time the food wasn't as good as before. The tuna wasn't very fresh. The pork in the ramen was very tough. The noodle salad was good.

We arrived on a Monday night (Valentine's Eve) to find a nearly full restaurant. And no reason to wonder why because the meals we were served (ramen ($13) for her, chicken teriyaki ($14) for me) were huge and delicious. The table seats are somewhat cramped and the place is noisy with conversation and laughter, so I wouldn't recommend this for... More

The ramen here is delicious. And their miso soup is the best I've ever tasted. Really great Japanese food - and really reasonably priced. Highly recommend ✔

Been here twice now, both times got the number 7 standard ramen! Both times it has been absolutely what I had felt like. Very generous on portions, with vegetables etc.

We didn't enjoy the ramen meal here. The egg was wrong, meat was wrong, noodles were wrong, char siew was wrong, broth was simply wrong. Extremely gutted, given the restaurant website claimed this came all the way from Fuji.

Big portions, small prices. Delicious ramen dishes and snacks. Attentive service. Nice atmosphere. Not BYO. Bookings not accepted on the day so book the day before if you have a tight time frame. If not you can go for a walk along the beach during your waiting time. The wait is certainly worth it!

Was persuaded by daughter to try them out for lunch and was not disappointed. Small cosy place offering excellent authentic Japanese ramen and more.

Great food. Great service. They make their own noodles, too. We are vegan and they do have vegetable broth for us. Love it.

Like the service here, ramen dishes are particularly good. Cheap eats if you don't drink. But they are inconsistent about whether they take bookings, & have been here for an early dinner on the weekend & they were full.

Description
RAMEN TAKARA is not your typical Japanese restaurant, instead of featuring tempura or sushi, we put our heart and effort into our ramen and rice dishes.

We even make our own noodles everyday using the finest flour, mineral water and fresh eggs.

Whether you are picking up a meal on the go, having a family dinner, or enjoying a drink with your friends, this is the right place to enjoy the refreshing and plesant dining experience.

Bookings are not essential but we recommended that you make a booking in advance to avoid disappointment, especially on weekends!
