When you turn up to a restaurant on a cold night in Auckland and have a list of people that are willing to wait for 30 - 40 minutes for a table AND to sit outside, something has to be good. I really enjoy Ramen,...More

Whenever we are in the area we liked to go to Takara. I would recommend the black spicy tan tan ramen and my bf always gets the chicken karaage. The greetings and farewells by all the staff make me miss Japan. Great value for food,...More

We ended up in Browns Bay on our Sunday drive and were looking for somewhere to eat close to the water. Ramen Takara suited and we were very impressed with the quality of the food for the price. Highly recommend to all.

Everyone loved their meals. Three ramen and one tofu. All very tasty and great value. Busy place, but service coped. I highly recommend, but it seems everyone does as very busy. Well done people.

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!
