We arrived in the evening, the place was packed, but people were actually eating and leaving, so finding a space was not an issue. The problem was finding a clean space. We found two seats where dishes and dirt was left by previous guests and were not cleared. I ordered veggie soup menu with shrimp and my husband ordered the beef. Now, quick side note, as a pescatarian, I am often “discriminated” both by full-on vegetarians and meat-eaters. If I order a veggie broth with shrimp on top, people assume automatically that I eat meat as well, so they think that if they accidentally put meat in my ramen, I will be OK with that. That was what happened. I ordered shrimp topping and got shrimp and meat, which I said I did not eat, so the worker simply removed the meat pieces from it and brought it back after I said I did not eat meat! Seriously?! Anyway, a few seconds later she came back and brought a big bowl of ramen with shrimp (menu comes with a small portion) and said they had chaos in the kitchen, so someone ordered big veggie ramen with shrimp in it and she assured me it was fully vegetarian apart from the shrimp. In the meantime, the dirty dishes were cleared by another worker (who dropped used chopsticks and dirty napkins on the floor and did not pick them up) and she set up new placemats and spoons for us, but without as much as wiping the dirty table... The floor was filthy as well and I saw the white child seat that was covered in dust and dirt as well in the corner, must have not been wiped for a while. So, cleanliness must definitely improve. Service could also be better, especially if there’s a tip box at the ordering counter. However, the ramen was not bad at all and the place takes cards. I would not go back, though.

I really don't get the 1 star reviews. We came here just before close and we were absolutely impressed with the portion sizes! Yes, it's not as tasty as other ramen places, and might not be 'traditional' ramen but what do you expect? It cost less than £4 for a huge bowl that will fill you up for the rest of the day. We came twice. I preferred the vegetarian broth to the pork broth, but I had the beef one once, and chicken the other. My partner had the tofu, and the vegetable. We really thoroughly enjoyed the experience twice. We found the service was good. Price was good. It was always very clean. If you're a ramen snob, don't go here. If you just want a good hearty bowl of ramen then come here and enjoy the experience.

I chose the restaurant based on good (or the best) reviews on social media for ramen. I was disappointed. The spaces resemble a bistro, fast service, a fairly extensive selection. However, the quality of the ramen soup was not the best; I would rather say that the taste was overly seasoned and salty. This often happens when restaurants use a lot of additives and artificial flavorings, which is common with soup. Therefore, the concept did not appeal to me, and I have no reason to return there.

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 nice

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..

Went to Ramenka with my husbond and 2 children at 10 and 14 years if age - we all were terribly disappointed. The soups all tasted the same (and it wasn’t Good), the dim sum looked as and had the same consistency as jelly fish the restaurant was dirty and the Bowls were with Big cuts. Dont go there - it is completely waste of money and even Worse waste of precious time in your vacay.

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.

The moment we saw non Asians cooking ramen we knew we had made a big mistake. The food (ramen) was tasteless. Had no authentic taste about it and tasted like a packet broth. Noodles were gross, egg terrible and the meat not much better.

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.

We visited this establishment for a takeaway ramen. We were told the wait would be 20 mins and then not even 40 minutes later we were still waiting for the food! Although the food took an extremely long time to come, the ramen was given to us disassembled, forcing us to essentially make it ourselves at home - no clue what took them so long to “make” the food. When received, the food was cold. The “bao buns” were nothing like actual bao buns. In future I would recommend to better explain to customers what you’ll actually be giving to them.

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.

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.

Worst ramen, bao buns & dim sum we’ve ever had. Tasteless, frozen and so it looked undercooked pork, the dumplings in the wonton soup were also so gross and the texture was not right. I would avoid at ALL costs and just go to a traditional Hungarian cuisine instead, we hardly ate any of it and we might as well have just thrown our money in the bin.

Had been looking forward to visit ramenka before heading home after a few days of vacation in Budapest. Passing it several times it caught our attention looking like a hip and nice restaurant. We ordered a bowl of the pork ramen and baos. The ramen was probably the worst ramen I’ve ever had. The broth was bland, the pork was mixed with beef, the egg was really overboiled, the noodles were mushy. We got the baos 15 minutes later and the were a major disappointment. They looked store bought and fabricated but I decided to give it a try. Took a bite and the middle was still frozen. I told the staff about this and without any apology she asked if she should heat them. Without any compensation I got them back 10 minutes later, STILL without any apology. Ate one of the buns but it was honestly hard to swallow, gooey inside that was some kind of unspecified meat. The bao was doughy and one of the worst things I’ve ever put in my mouth. The staffs rudeness and the food destroyed our last day of vacation!

The tofu ramen was tasty however it was just too oily. Oil blobs visible on top. The vegetable gyoza were also quite oily & salty which was disappointing. Enjoyed the Aloe Vera juice & seaweed salad. It is a ramen bar so seating was quite close. Staff were helpful. Would have enjoyed it much more without the excess oil & salt.
