Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I ordered ramen with chicken from Jo's Ramen (they trade as Kagerou Ramen House on Bolt). On the picture, they present this dish to come with something like six hearty slices of chicken. In reality, however, the dish came with 20-30 grams of shredded chicken...meat (I could hardly find it at all in my portion). I believe this kind of "saving" on ingredients is unacceptable in Estonia, where a pound of quality chicken breasts costs around 2.50 euro, and this place charges 12.50 euro (the full price) for this dish. The broth was rather plain too. I will not order again and would not recommend this place to anyone who appreciates what truly delicious ramen is supposed to be.More

The Ramen and Duck Gyoza were nice, but it is ridiculous that the restaurant is in the € (cheap) category since it is rather expensive. We paid 48€ for Ramen with Tuna (recommended it was nice), Ramen with Tofu and Shrimps, 6 Duck Gyoza, a...large and a small beer.More

Visited because one of the kids in our family is a huge fun of oriental food at the moment, and insisted on it. Despite of being advertised like they making ramen from the scratch and all and all, I didn't tasted too much difference with...pre-made ones I tasted before. Can't say it was bad, but in any case it was not significantly different from anything I've tried before to justify price difference. Also strangely enough it was one of the several places we've been in Tallinn where they not offering drought beer, not sure if that some local licensing laws quirks or what, call me stingy, but I'm not ready to pay five of four times for same canned beer in bar. So overal verdict - food is good (nothing too special) but a tad overpriced.More

We went to this Ramen restaurant because of the homemade noodles and because it was advertised as a cheap place to eat in Tallin. Even though in the end it was not that convenient (€13-18 for a bowl of Ramen), we enjoyed the amazing homemade...noodles in a pleasant atmosphere.More

The live and breathe ramen at Jo`s. When sitting by the counter you can see your bowl being created. They take pride in their homemade noodles and righteously so. Trustworthy place among old town tourist traps. The place is rather small, so don´t expect a...private dinner conversation, they are more about communicating with people around you as well as behind the counter.More

We really enjoyed our pork ramen (and red wine) at this restoraunt for lunch. It is a small place, with a great service and delicious food. It wasn't cheap but I worth it. I would come back!

I stopped by this place which I have not noticed before and I decided to give a try. I was the only customer in the restaurant. I really liked the ambience and atmosphere: very relaxing and inspiring at the same time. Unfortunately I was not...really satisfied with the food: I ordered a duck Gyoza but the six pieces I was served were all burned at the bottom (you can see from my pic). Then I had Ramen with yellow fina tuna which was not bad but it lacked of consistency (flavours were not blending together). Finally (but I did not want to say anything ...) I ordered a Saku Porter (beer) and I was taken a Karl Friedrich instead -which is not the same. Well overall not a bad experience but undoubtedly there are things to be improved. Slightly overpriced.More

The dining atmosphere is nice, but the noodle quality is awful. The soup is too salty, and it's pricey. I would not recommend it.
