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.More

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.More

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.More

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!More

The place was packed so we were sitting next to two couples we didn’t know. That in itself wouldn’t have been a problem if the food was good. It wasn’t. We ate the chicken ramen, the soup was bland, chicken was not very fresh and...we missed the soft boiled egg and the flavoring oils from the ramen. The service was impolite, they kinda looked fed up. The toilet was disgusting.More

Really nice place. I really loved the way it was designed in the inside. Friendly staff and delicious ramen. The prices are nice and the ramen portions are really big. Kindly recommend this for a warm bowl of ramen.

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.

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
