First visit to Ramen and won't be our last. Good menu with plenty to choose from. We sat out side at one of the long tables which was a little snug for 11 of us, but we managed. Don't order too many starters as the...More

Ramen Takara, a definite favourite of mine and better yet it’s my local. Always bustling with people, very friendly staff, great food and always consistent which I love the most. My weaknesses are the pork goyza dumplings and to die for pork belly spring rolls....More

We visited this restaurant for the first time this week, having heard good things from several friends, and were not disappointed. The servings are well-proportioned (the seaweed salad for $9 is a steal), and the food is fresh, tasty and interesting. There are modern takes...More

Heard a lot of good reports on Ramen Takara and decided to give it a go. Well worth it, great choice of dishes and all well prepared. Service was quick but that's because it was early in the evening. Will definitely go back.

I have tried the Miso Ramen, Tonkatsu Ramen which are great but the Sai-Sai Ramen is my favourite. All staff are Japanese which is important in a Japanese restaurant. Friendly, genuine place I will keep coming back.

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!
