Super delicious food in super sized portions! You're definitely getting your moneys worth here. Top recommendation is the spicy broth. Get there early for a table!

After trying ramen in Japan recently we have been keeping an eye out for a ramen place in Melbourne and had to visit when we were in Perth and saw the reviews this place had. It was around 2.30 so we didn't need to line up but would have been happy to after tasting the food, which also came out... More

Pretty well know for its Ramen. The shop is a bit small so sometimes when it get busy, makes you feel a bit pressured since everyone is waiting for your seat.

When we arrived a long queue snaked out of the restaurant and down the pavement. We waited almost an hour for a table, but the food was fabulous and worth the wait. The meal felt rushed, due to the number of people waiting to dine.

Great ramen place for lunch. We ordered the standard shio, shoyu and miso ramens. Also a okonomiyaki stick and ika stick. The noodles is just right texture and a bit chewy. We find the soups a bit too salty for our palate, the miso based soup is the least salty of the three. Would love to go back again. They... More

Revisited this ramen restaurant with friends. It is now relocated in air-conditioned premises in the arcade with larger seating area. The ramen is still as good but its popularity is clear - a moderate queue during lunch time and even early dinner. We had spicy ramen and miso ramen with egg noodles. Delicious! My visitor gobbled up the whole bowl... More

If you want authentic, wholesome and delicious Ramen - this is the place to go. Most places use a pre made stock for it, but from my understanding these guys make it every day!. It made all the difference I reckon. Thank you. Great feed for a Friday arvo.

Maybe it is the best ramen in perth. Well the noodles were made there. But it was hard? I think people like the noodles hard here. Huge bowls though, I am glad i didnt order the large size. Also the takoyaki wasnt frozen but made there. So thats a plus side. Just cue up before it opens and youll be... More

Before dining at Nao, the last time I'd had Ramen was at Ichiran and Tsuta in Tokyo and although I wasn't expecting the Ramen to match the likes or calibre of either of those, given the reviews I was expecting much more, than what myself and 4 other guests received. As per the usual, I went nuts with ordering and... More
