Rudest members of staff we have encountered on our visit. We waited at the order point for a long time whilst being ignored by 4 members of staff. When we asked to order they said '2 minutes, we don't open until 12' (fair enough but...the door was open). Once they finally took our order she said "you'll have to repeat it because... yeah", even though she listened to the whole thing. The server looked like she'd woken up from a 20 year coma, barely able to respond to anything I said. I actually had to ask 'whats going on here' at one point and she just stared at me blankly. Also the ramen was bland and the dumplings weren't much better.More

Was only ok. There wasn’t much salt and spicy, and the pasta it doesn’t have any taste. The ambience is friendly. The gyozas were much oily.

We loved the ramen. We tried 2 different ones, and they were delicious 🤤!! The soups are served in big 🥣. Also the gyoza meat feeling was perfect!! ✨

The worst Ramen I've ever had. It was tasteless, bland and not really warm. The place looks cute, minimalistic but the food is not worth it at all!

Can't tell much positive beside the staff being nice and helpful, but unfortunately the food is disappointing. Another minus point for being overpriced for the product you receive. Broth feels neglected like a broth being on stove top for an hour and a half, tasteless,...missing texture, aromatic compounds and basically the experience you expect from a ramen. No more thank you.More

I decided to eat here with my boyfriend, expecting to eat something very quick after a stroll in the city. Probably one of the worst places we have eaten at during our staying in Budapest. The pork ramen tasted like a sock soup: the egg...seemed rotten and the pork meat was very dry. Gyoza were okay. The WORST thing about the restaurant was the rude staff: when we asked to clean the tables or to explain the ingredients of a dish they seemed pissed and bothered. The only pro is that the restaurant is located in a very strategic area and that the furniture is quite niceMore

If you’re looking for something authentic or more or less such in the world of ramen, then avoid this place at all costs. It gave me an impression of a poor fast-food chain, with very unwelcoming to international tourists staff. In all fairness, ramen is...not horrible, it’s just bad. This place gave me such negative emotions that I decided to write my first review ever..More

My girlfriend and I have vistited the place this afternood to have two Ramen soups. This restaurant was once good, we used to go here every now and then, but did not visit the place since last summer due to the pandemic. The experience now...was totally bad. First the staff was rude and unpleasant. They acted like they were making a favor by taking our order. On the top of that they checked our immunity certificate (Hungary’s vaccination pass) in a very weird manner. First mine, then a minute later, her’s. Makes no sense at all… The ID check was so rude and firm that I felt like I was in a military camp. Definately not a good approach for a place that has no open terrace and can only serve guests like us (who already have the vaccination) for in-dining. Anyway, we let it pass, tried to smile and tried to take it humourusly. After this unpleasant start, the bigger problem was that the food wasn’t the same at all like it was in the past. My befoo was so-so, but my girlfriend’s waeggi soup was salty as hell. She could barely take a slip. She is a polite girl, so she cheerfully told them about the situation and ask for a glass of water to delute this salty madness. They told her that “it is always like that, don’t you know”? What a pityful lie! I tasted it as well, and it was NEVER like that. (We ate here at least twenty times in the past years.) We were of course offerned no refund at all. At the end, we didn’t care, just left. And we are never coming back. Unfortunately this place turn from gold to turd. The other bad reviews are indeed valid. (I could not beleive this before…!) On the top of that the place is way to dirty. The front window where we sat was full of something sticky and cloudy. Definately needs cleaning. To sum it up: rude staff, salty food, dirty interior. I’m so sad that this happend to Ramenka. :( These events took place on May 23th, 2021, around 7 pm.More

Ramenka closed before 8pm when 3 out of our 10 people group had ordered their food. They didn't even take the time to let us know they were closing before time. After we argued they served us but started shouting and saying "Oh my God"...and taking everything away from our own table while we were eating. Definitely not worth it. You can find much better food and definitely better service in many places in Budapest.More

Bland ramen, you can clearly tell that the meat and vegetables were not cooked in the broth just chucked in afterwards. Gyoza was surely deep fried and not steamed as you can see from all the black dirt bits shown on the photo. Overpriced for...value.More
