Restaurant details
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

visited the place yesterday with a friend...
went there around past 5pm, but the place was busy already...
we ordered the stamina ramen and gyoza...
they were really nice...
the stamina ramen was with the amount of hot kick into it, the spiciness was just right...
the gyoza was ok...
like what other reviewers indicated, place was a bit small and parking is a challenge...
but worth a visit...
staff are very accommodating...
and they don't accept tips...

We were excited to try the place (it was going to be our first time) but were actually unable to eat there because of the unforgivable mistake of one of their marketing guys - who should have known better.

My wife called to make a reservation for 6 persons. Froilan, who introduced himself as from marketing, accepted and confirmed the reservation for 12 noon of October 27, 2013. When we reached the restaurant we were told that reservations are not allowed and that we had to wait. We were told that we were number 6 in the waitlist. We protested that Froilan confirmed our reservation, but since the guy was not around we couldn't do anything. In short we left in haste utterly disappointed. I told my wife while we were already in the car to call again the number where she was able to reach Froilan. The person who answered the phone was the same lady in the restaurant who told us that they don't accept reservations. The lady confirmed however that Froilan is indeed part of their marketing group. My wife told the lady that we were not from the place and we came from a far city so they should have been 'careful' in giving out information.

My recent trip to Japan made me miss ramen so much that, I've been in search for authentic ramen here in Manila ever since. I've tried the popular and expensive ramen food houses, but I never knew that the one I've been looking for was just a ride away from our place :) it was a pleasant suprise indeed!

Found out about this joint a few weeks ago and to be honest, if it weren't for a food blog, I wouldn't even know that this exists in our place. My bf (a ramen enthusiast himself) and I decided to pay visit and was really satisfied with the experience.

The place is just like how it is in Japan, small, cozy and with really accommodating and friendly staff. We ordered Tamagoya and Gomoku ramen (seafood), gyoza (as our default side dish) and tori karaage (my personal favorite :). I was really suprised to find that the ramen tasted almost the same in Japan. It was good! The pork was small tho compared to the ones I've tried in Tokyo, but tasted almost the same. The soup was tasty same with gyoza and tori karaage. I loved the karaage! :) And my bf loves his seafood ramen as well.

All in all, this place is such a blessing to ramen lovers like us. Affordable and authentic ramen is guaranteed!

I am not a fan of anything "soupy", I prefer my viands dry. So I did not imagine myself enjoying a ramen. See, my husband loves ramen so much he thinks he was once a samurai so there' s no arguing in trying Tamagoya. This place near our home has been getting rave reviews but it's just now that we braved the wait time and our bellies ended up satisfied. The seafood ramen that we ordered is well seasoned, you can taste the sea. My son enjoyed the Tamagoya ramen as the pork is soft. What I enjoyed the most is the Pork Katsudon, the caramel taste of the onions are very much present but not overpowering. The place is small and if you are a group of more than five, expect to wait. It is affordable compared to the other ramen houses but you get more than what you pay for as you really get to taste Japan in every sip and bite.

I am not really a great fan of ramen to begin with but this place made me love ramen.

PLACE: quaint, and highly resembles the Japanese small restaurant. The atmosphere gets you in the mood to eat anything Japanese. However, the place is small. But the good thing about it is that it prevents children from running around the restaurant which makes the eating experience an enjoyable activity (and it deviates from the already saturated fastfood style atmosphere which is so impersonal and general). Cleanliness well kept as well.

FOOD: The food is terrific, and among my favorites would be Stamina Ramen, Curry Ramen, Kara-age, and Gyosa. Really large servings, which is a great value for the money (P140 to 200). It is not like your Japanese fastfood which is poorly prepared and too expensive for the price. However, one may find the menu selection quite limited (no sushi, makis), nonetheless, one goes there for the ramen and nothing else.

SERVICE: Another plus factor. Despite the many people who would really be impatient and irritating, the staff are fabulous in handling concerns and orders. Service with the smile. And they strictly do not accept tips. Seriously.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE: One of the main reasons why I keep coming back to this place is because eating out has never been so delightful. Ramen will always be ramen, but what makes this place special is how everything seems to fall in place. This is one eating experience you should not miss out. :)

NOTE: It is open only from Tuesdays to Sundays, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Closed on Mondays. Limited parking, so make sure you come early.
