Visited with two young kids in tow and just a really great experience . Super tasty vege ramen ,reasonably priced and excellent service. The chicken karaage is best in town I am told by the meat eaters.

Always great ramen and miso soup. I never get to try anything else, since the soup is so filling and a large quantity.

Yes, I have discovered that Sushi is not the only delicious Japanese food. We piled into the small restaurant for dinner and were quickly attended to by a Japanese Harry Potter look alike. Drinks were ordered and came shortly after-all in very efficient Japanese style....More

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!
