“Very, very good - very, very busy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Bankara is fantastic. Thin soup, classic is my and family favorite. Be prepared to wait 15mins to get seated as Bankara is very busy. They should open a few more branches...

“One of the best authentic ramen in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

First time to this restaurant on last Sunday. We arrived 15 mins before opening time at 11 am. but there were around 10 people waiting. By 11.20, it was full house and lining outside. I could say that the ramen here is one of the best in town. Authentic Japanese ramen with excellent soup. Side dishes like fried dumpling, fried chickens were great. Highly recommended but be prepared for 30 mins queue or arrive there before time.

“Best Ramen in Thailand!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012 via mobile

Best Ramen shop that I've ever tried in Thailand. It looks like I have the Ramen in Japan. The taste is very close.

“Excellent ramen !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

Place: small, a bit dark, japanese restaurant in Soi 39. You can see the kitchen, and the staff shouts a warm "welcome" in japanese everytime a customer comes in.

Menu: in japanese, thai, and english, large choice or Ramen, as well as many other side dishes.

Food: excellent, really. Probably the best ramen I've had so far, lot of meat that melts in your mouth, large bowl, one is more than enough to fill you up.

Service: good. Very quick, and the waitress was very helpful to help us decide which ramen would suit us the best.

Price: from 180 to 300 Bahts per bowl of noodles, water is free. Great price considering the quality of the food, and given that one bowl is way more than enough.

I recommend !

“Outstanding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

So many good ramen restaurants in Bangkok, this one manages to stand out.
I would give it 5 stars except sometimes their meat is too fatty.
