A regular visitor here since it first opened with about 3 tables, it has since expanded considerably and the good food has remained consistent. There is plenty of variety in the menu to suit everyone with the usual Teriyaki chicken option. A favourite of mine is the Pork Gyoza (dumplings) as a starter with the Tan Tan Ramen as a... More

My partner and I came to Ramen Takara feeling all excited to try out their dishes as it has just good reviews. Sadly it all turned down hill when the waitress required to check our IDs when we ordered our drinks. My partner simply forgotten to bring out his ID but had his Malaysian driver's license but she rejected it.... More

I love Japanese food and Ramen Takara did not disappoint. We arrived with no booking on a Saturday night, it was full house..... we were put on a waiting list and told they would call as soon as a table became available. Across the road we'd barely finished our drink before the table was ready. The food was perfect and... More

My latest favourite takeaway is the tan tan ramen from Ramen Takara. Meals are always served quickly and the staff are very friendly. The noodles pack all the flavour you would expect into the bowl.

I went to dinner with friends and I tried a bit of what everyone got - and they all tasted amazing. The staff where also super friendly and helpful when we needed to asked... More

We had a take-out on a Saturday night, I collected it and every table was taken with people waiting outside the door. We had two different Ramen, plus some appetizers, and everything was superb. $40 for take-out for two puts it at the top of the budget but it's certainly good food and worth what you pay for it.

I have been coming here for years and the food has always been A++++ quality. Yuki and the staff at both offices are always smiling, polite, friendly and customer service focused. Since I moved away from Auckland last May I have not been able to find a place to match the ramen at Ramen Takara - both in NZ and... More

Yummy.... the shio tori ramen and agedashi are so tasty.... Services and food are great. Their food handling hygiene is an "excellent" A - first time I have seen that in green letter.

This is a lovely little place, I'd recommend booking in advance as when we got there it was queued out the door! We waited about 20 minutes for a table but it was well worth it. The food comes in massive portions and very reasonable prices and the staff are all very friendly. The perfect place for a family meal... More

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.

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!
