I haven't eaten much ramen in my life but I know good ramen and this is it! With a great glass of wine (nice selection of wines here) this was a surprisingly delicious meal. The ramen was reasonably priced, just under $10 US dollars. The very casual place was comfortable, I highly suggest visiting here!

After reading a lot of good reviews about this place we decided to grab a quick bite after our walk through Cape Town. When we came there the place was pretty crowded which is a good sign. The Service was professional but had not really time as there were 3 waiters for the whole restaurant. We decided to take the vegetarian ramen and the tofu bun. The ramen was average, but the bun simply wasn't good. To much dough to little filling and the taste wasn't really good.

Do yourself a favour and go have some Ramen, now! Our usual dinner before a show at the Fugard Theatre or for any other excuse we can think of. Love the Bao and Shoyu Ramen bowl. Get some drinks downstairs at Lefty's. Great for a group visit or just a quick dinner during the week.

Really awesome ramen in a hipster hole in the wall type location. Limited wine on menu but enough beer. Well priced and generous portions.

Downtown Ramen is awesome for Ramen, it has a communal sitting area and the atmosphere is lovely. The retro arcade games in the back also add to the ambiance. Go there an explore the food. The portions are more than enough and if you are a light eater, perhaps you should share a bowl.
